KoRn, KoRn, KoRn
KORN is currently working on its ninth studio album, which is due out sometime in early 2010. Although only three members of the original lineup — Davis, guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer and bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu — remain, Davis said that the essence of KORN is intact. "I'll lay it down to you right now: all the writing was done by Fieldy and Munky," he said. "David [Silveria, ex-drummer] was there to write beats, but he wasn't really there. Head [ex-guitarist Brian Welch] wasn't really there for any of it, because he was so jacked up on drugs and worrying about other things. So the core of KORN is there. And adding Ray [Luzier] as the drummer — he loves playing drums and he plays just like David did. We're excited that we found someone that fits that mold. So I think we got the three that's the core of what KORN is."
