Munky, Head Disagree on Specifics of Korn Reunion Rumors

Over the weekend, ALTitude TV sat down with original Korn guitarist, James ‘Munky’ Shaffer, to talk about the rumors of an upcoming reunion with all the band’s original members, which have been floating around since early spring. During the Sunset Strip Music Festival, Munky was immediately asked about the status of guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch and drummer David Silveria (who was never given a silly nickname). In regards to Silveria, Munky noted, “I heard he sold every single drum he owns … or he gave it away. He doesn’t even own a drumstick.”

While that could be true, he was more convinced on the fate of Head — a relationship he compared to the regrets of a finalized divorce from a hot, successful wife. In all honesty, Munky’s metaphor didn’t go very far, but the big picture painted was that Head had wanted back in for a Korn reunion and he was unanimously denied. “It’s not the right time … for us.”

ALTitude’s video has been garnering a lot of attention, so much that Head’s publicist delivered a statement from the noggin himself with a direct response that that video. He says that ever since frontman Jonathan Davis publicly declared wanting to regroup Korn, the band’s managers have been contacting his own, and he has been shutting the door — “many, many times over” — via his managers.

Bassist Reginald ‘Fieldy’ Arvizu was the one who reached out to Head to personally reconnect. “Since Fieldy is sober now and a Christian like me, I thought it may be a good idea to visit with Fieldy, a friend of mine, to see what he was up to and what it was all about.” From there on, he says his attempts to connect with Jonathan and Munky were futile, and that visits with Fieldy confirmed that he has “a different calling in life than to reconnect musically/professionally.”

As with most rumored reunions, the vagueries live on, and confirmations of a true Korn reunion look grim considering the words publicly exchanged over the last week.
