More Proof That a Full-Fledged KORN Reunion Is Bound To Happen
A few weeks back, Korn announced they are getting back together with former guitarist Brian "Head" Welch for a pair of shows in Germany next summer. It wasn't a stretch to imagine this is just the beginning of a full-fledged reunion tour. I think at this point in their career, with 90s nostalgia ramping up, it's probably the best move, as they've done all they could without turning into a legacy act.
A recent interview that Head gave pretty much seals the deal for me that this Korn reunion is definitely going to be full-fledged.
In a recent interview with Revolver, Head said:
"Last year, I ended up at the Carolina Rebellion show. Evanescence played, and I had gone with P.O.D., because I was on tour with them. Korn was playing. I was just going to go say hi to them. I saw Munky, and we talked for a long time. It was the first time we talked in seven years.
He’s sober now and everyone’s in a good place. They asked me to jam with them [on the song "Blind"] five minutes before the show. I was like, This was supposed to be the first time I was gonna watch Korn. I was going to go to the soundboard and everything. But I was like, “All right I’ll do it.” And I felt this connection. It was all positive.
When I left Korn, there was all this negative crap everywhere. I went home and thought, That was a cool experience. So Munky called me a little bit later about reuniting [for the shows in Germany]. I told him I didn’t think it was the right time, but maybe later. Then I thought about it more and I called him back. I had so much fun jamming I said, “Let’s do it.” It’s a couple shows. I want to connect with the fans. It is the right time.
We’re just going slow right now. We’re just gonna do those couple shows and see what happens. Just have a good time.”
Translation: If we don't absolutely end up killing each other, I'm going to stick around and make far more money together with people who used to be my friends than I can make alone doing a solo record, releasing terrible lyric videos. Somebody call David Silvera.
