Korn’s Munky on Head’s Return: ‘The Magic Is Back’
Korn are as vital as ever, having hit many of the major rock and metal festivals this spring and they’re now getting ready for a summer on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. During the group’s recent stop at the Welcome to Rockville festival, ‘Loudwire Nights’ host Full Metal Jackie spoke with Korn guitarist Munky about how things are going live with the return of guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch and as expected, it’s definitely going well.
“I always compare it to like a three-legged dog. You can get around for a little bit and we did for a long time, but having him back it just feels like we’re all on all cylinders again. You can feel it every night, the magic is back,” says Munky.
The guitarist says that it wasn’t long after Head returned that the band realized it was all going to work. Munky explains, “Our managers didn’t want us to tell anybody because you know, it had been so long. We didn’t know how it was going to go. So after the first day, we were like, ‘Oh, this is amazing.’ Second day I was calling the guys at the management company and saying, ‘Hey, this is gonna work.’”
Check out the full interview above in which Munky also discusses touring tips and offers background on the band’s singles ‘Never Never’ and ‘Spike in My Veins.’
