Ex-Korn Drummer David Silveria: Fieldy is “a Cowardly Little Bitch,” and a “Judgmental Self Righteous Idiot”
I’m sorry guys, that headline was just too juicy to resist. But ex-Korn drummer David Silveria did, in fact, call Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu “a cowardly little bitch” in a very public manner earlier today, among many other nasty remarks about the once and current Korn bassist.
Fieldy released an autobiography called Got the Life in 2010 in which he allegedly talks smack on Silveria, who left the band in 2006. Why this is coming up three years after the release of the book I can’t say, but a fan named Angelo Schiro posted the following on Silveria’s Facebook page last night:
Reading Fieldys book, he mentions you, saying how he threw down his bass and called you out to fight him and after that you two never got along, what the hell happened? Did you put him in a armbar? Lol
Silveria then unleashed a torrent of replies amongst a number of Korn fans doing the same. Here are Silveria’s, which are interspersed throughout the post:
Ha ha!! Fieldy NEVER threw down his bass and tried to fight me. He is a coward with a big mouth and he knows I would beat his ass like the little wimp that he is. I would love for him to talk shit to my face now. I would love to crush him like a bitch.
Feel free to share my other comment anywhere that fieldy may see it.
Sorry guys. Fieldy has acted like a tough guy for so long it’s nice to tell the truth. Not only is he NOT a tough guy but he’s a cowardly little bitch. He never tried to fight me cuz he knows I would squash him like a bug. He acted like a tough guy on tour to our staff cuz he knew he could get away with it because our crew got paid well and didn’t want to lose their jobs. He used that to walk around acting like he though he was a tough gangsta. Our entire crew laughed at him behind his back because they all knew he is a pussy. I would love to see him out somewhere with no security to protect the runt. He wouldn’t say anything because he’s totally scared of me.
Munky just puts up with them. A lot of people don’t know this but after I left the band Jon and fieldy would gang up on Munky trying to control him and Munky QUIT the band 3 times since I’ve been gone. When I was in the band I stood up to their control freak nonsense and Munky became their target after I left. It’s all nonsense because there is no reason for them to be asshole drama control freaks when they could have been cool like Munky and I and just embraced the blessing of being able to play music for a living. Fieldy and Jon had drama almost daily. I never wanted anything to do with their stupid nonsense. I just wanted to enjoy being a rock star and rock the world drama free!!
If all of these post get put on Blabbermouth so be it. It’s all true and the band members know.
The original Korn sound is gone. It’s the JD show now and it just no good.
Before I left the band he became a Christian but he just really became a judgmental self righteous idiot. Seriously.
There’s also some talk of Silveria’s weight-lifting routine if anyone cares to read the whole thread.
I have nothing insightful to add to this conversation other than that at least Silveria had the self-awareness to know this stuff was gonna end up all over the Internet (and judging by his language he’s already deleted at least one). I suppose he’s hoping Fieldy and Jonathan Davis see it, although I can’t say whether his end goal is for a brawl or for a Korn reunion. My money’s on the latter eventually happening once the dust settles.
