KORN: THE FIRST NU METAL BAND TO JOIN HAIR METAL IN THE TELL-ALL WRITER’S CLUB

120

Fieldy from Korn is apparently writing a book. Here’s what he had to say about it in a recent interview:

“It’s like an inspirational autobiography. It’s going to have pictures from my childhood through my teens until now, and people’s jaws are going to be on the ground when they read some of the stories, people are not going to believe I’m still alive. I’ve led the craziest life ever. People are going to be blown away when they check this book out.”

I think he means “people are going to be blown away when they discover that I can actually read and write.” Aw, who are we kidding? A friggin’ ghost writer is gonna do all the reading and writing for him!

Actually, this book might prove some (mostly inadvertent) entertainment; but it’s tough to imagine Fieldy giving the kind of dish you want from a tome like this. In other words, there are other upcoming metal tell-alls I’m much more excited about.

Of course, Fieldy isn’t the first member of Korn to wager that at least some small percentage of the band’s fans are literate: Head released a book last year in which he detailed how Jesus, and not the laws of good taste, finally convinced him that it was time to leave the band.
