Corey Taylor Joins Supernatural Star Jensen Ackles for Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive
It was a perfect mix of rock and shock when Supernatural star Jensen Ackles was joined onstage by Corey Taylor for a cover of the Bon Jovi hit "Wanted Dead Or Alive" at the official fan convention for the long-running CW television series in Las Vegas, Nev.
Ackles had just performed the Allman Brothers Band classic "Whipping Post" with a band that includes Rob Benedict on guitar, who also plays God (aka Chuck) on Supernatural.
"I'm gonna ask to have some help form a friend of mine," the actor, who plays Dean Winchester on the show, says in the video which can be seen above. "You guys may know him, his name is Corey Taylor. If you guys know the band Slipknot, Stone Sour...this is the man."
"I am freaking...I feel like I won a contest, man," Taylor says after his introduction. The two then trade off on vocals for the song, a signature track released in 1986 by the New Jersey rockers.
Taylor, who has long been a fan of Supernatural, took to Twitter the morning after the performance. "I'm still shitting myself. Thanks to the whole #SPN crew and the whole cast for being so [good] to me. Lifelong fan - SO AWESOME!!!!!"
