Album Cover – Follow the Leader (1998)


Korn (stylized as KoЯn) is an American nu metal band from Bakersfield, California, formed in 1993. The band’s current lineup includes founding members James “Munky” Shaffer (rhythm guitar), Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu (bass), Brian “Head” Welch (lead guitar, backing vocals), and Jonathan Davis (lead vocals, bagpipes), with the addition of Ray Luzier (drums), who replaced the band’s original member, David Silveria in 2007. Korn was originally formed by three of the members of the band L.A.P.D.

Follow the Leader is the band’s third studio album. In a 2013 interview, the band revealed that they partied heavily during the production of the album, with massive amounts of alcohol, drugs, and women in the studio. Davis explained further, saying that while recording the vocals for “It’s On”, there were “people getting blowjobs right behind me, there was girls banging each other in front of me, people getting boned in the closet right behind me, it was the craziest shit I’ve ever seen in my life and I sang that song.” According to Davis, he only agreed to begin tracking vocals when producer Toby Wright met his demands for an eight-ball (a one-eighth ounce of cocaine).

Fun Fact

In 2007, after original drummer David Silveria had left, Korn hired many touring drummers including Joey Jordison of Slipknot. Jordison left due to preparation for the recording of Slipknot’s new album All Hope Is Gone. Consequently, Korn was then looking for a new drummer; and Luzier reportedly flew to Seattle to audition for Korn with James “Munky” Shaffer and Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu. When told to learn only five of their songs, Luzier learned 30. After an amazing audition, Luzier was immediately invited to join Korn.
