These are the best of times for Korn, who have reunited with guitarist Brian "Head" Welch both onstage and in the studio. Loudwire met up with Head and fellow Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer on the Revolver Golden Gods Black Carpet and discussed reviving the onetime dynamic and how it feels to renew the personal and professional relationship. Check out out interview with the Korn guitarists below:
It’s no secret many Korn fans were bummed when Brian ‘Head’ Welch left the band, but he is set to reunite with the group for a couple of shows in 2013 after playing a one-off gig at the Carolina Rebellion festival this past year. 'Head' is set to join Korn for their dates at next year’s German rock festivals Rock am Ring and Rock im Park. The gigs will be his first full sets with the band since 2004.
For fans of Korn, we've got some big news. And for fans of Baby Korn, we've got even bigger news! It's time to light up a cigar for Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer and his wife Evis, who just added a new member to their family. Son D'Angelo DraXon Shaffer was welcomed into the world Wednesday, Nov. 7.
Korn may have revitalized their career somewhat with the dubstep heavy 'The Path of Totality' album, but what does that mean for their next disc? Guitarist James "Munky' Shaffer tells the Phoenix New Times that he envisions the return of more guitar-heavy music, though electronics will still factor in.
Brian 'Head' Welch joined Korn live onstage for the first time in seven years on May 5 -- playing 'Blind' with the band at the Carolina Rebellion festival in Rockingham, N.C. Now, it seems like a more permanent reunion may be a possibility. In a new interview, Korn guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer revealed that he, and perhaps the entire band, is open to the idea.
