Korn’s new album ‘The Paradigm Shift’ has been out for about a month and the band has been making the rounds to talk all about it. One major topic that keeps coming up is what it was like to work with guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch again and overcoming the obstacles of creative differences after a ten year break. In a recent interview on the ‘Sixx Sense’ radio show, hosted by Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis and guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer weigh in on just that.
