While most fans will know Slipknot for their epic tunes and prolific number of albums, the frontman Corey Taylor may also ring a bell for another reason.
The singer is also an actor, and appeared in an episode od Doctor Who, which starred Peter Capaldi at the time.
Taylor plyed The Fisher King – giving the terrifying beast his roar, while Peter Serafanowicz gave him his voice.
