The music video features appearances from Steel Panther, Tom Sandoval of Bravo TV’s Vanderpump Rules, Dean Cameron, and Travis Miguel of Atreyu.
Corey Taylor has unveiled another epic visual from his debut solo effort, CMFT. The latest video for the fan favorite “Samantha’s Gone” showcases a little sorely needed humor and levity, set to a soundtrack of stylized rock n roll.
Enlisted the likes of Steel Panther, Tom Sandoval of Bravo TV’s Vanderpump Rules, and actor Dean Cameron [Summer School, Ski School, Straight Outta Compton], the video begins with the wrong band attempting the right song – that is until Taylor and the boys handle the situation.
In a recent interview with Bravo TV’s The Daily Dish, Taylor provided some insight to the video. “The video for ‘Samantha’s Gone’ served two purposes: making fun of so-called ‘indie rock’ bands and getting all my friends together to hang out and have a good time. We all went back and forth, between having fun and social distancing. Watching the first ‘band’ was great, then being fired from our OWN song in favor of Steel Panther was the icing on the cake – can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
The video release follows Taylor’s recent appearance leading the supergroup Ground Control for the streaming event celebrating the life and legacy of David Bowie, Just For One Day. The tribute performance saw Taylor team with Chris Chaney and Dave Navarro of Jane’s Addiction as well as Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters to take on a trifecta of Bowie essentials in honor of the late icon’s 74th birthday.
