Matt Bishop, correspondent for PopCultureMadness.com, conducted an interview with KORN drummer Ray Luzier backstage at Carolina Rebellion this past Saturday (May 5) at Rockingham Speedway in Rockingham, North Carolina. You can now watch the chat below.
As previously reported, KORN was joined onstage by former guitarist Brian “Head” Welch at Carolina Rebellion. According to The Pulse Of Radio, Welch joined the band to perform its classic song “Blind”, with singer Jonathan Davis introducing him by saying, “For a long-ass time, this spot right here has been very lonely — very very lonely. I want to bring out one of my truest and oldest and most beloved friends to come out and have some fun with this. You guys ready? My boyyyyyyy!”
The performance marked the first time in seven years that KORN has played with Welch, who left the group in 2005 to become a born-again Christian.
Welch later commented, “It was so amazing Saturday night playin’ with KORN. Reconciling with family is always good. So much love on stage and from KORN fans. Many tears shed. God is love.”
Both Welch and bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu have said in recent interviews that a full reunion could be possible one day.
Fans have pointed to the band’s upcoming 20th anniversary as a recording act in 2014 as one possible milestone to attach a reunion to.
Welch is currently on the road with his new band, LOVE AND DEATH, which recently issued a new EP called “Chemicals”. KORN is touring behind its 10th studio effort, “The Path Of Totality”.
