Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has disappointed fans by destroying his bad boy rocker image - insisting he is a sensitive family man who weeps at soppy adverts.

The KILLERS ARE QUIET singer has given up drugs and his daily bottle of whisky to become a clean-living father for his two young children.

The mask-wearing rebel confesses, "I started doing drugs when I was 12. It got to a point where I was drinking a bottle and a half of whisky every night to calm down. Now I'm completely sober and have been for eight months.

"I have a family of my own now and being away from them a lot crushes me. A cheesy, lovey dovey commercial on television makes me burst into tears. On of the main reasons I gig is to be a better person and a better father."
