Ray Luzier (Korn) Working On New Book

During an interview with 93.3 WMMR, Korn’s Ray Luzier revealed that he is working on a new book. The effort is being described as a “rock book” and half of it will focus on the drummer’s time with David Lee Roth (Van Halen).

Luzier said the following:

“It’s not about, like, ‘Oh, Mr. Rock Star guy.’ It’s about getting signed, getting dropped, getting this promised this and then me joining national bands. But 50 percent of my book is David Lee Roth, ’cause eight years with that guy, you can’t make that stuff up. And I love him to death — he’s the most amazing, one of the best entertainers ever. But there’s a lot there — there’s a lot of content.

A lot of people don’t realize out there, they think your favorite band, they just think, ‘Oh, they got signed and they’re huge and they’re famous.’ A lot of people don’t have any idea what some of us go through. I did the hard road. October starts my 14th years with KORN, which I’m super stoked to still be in and we’re still around. Fieldy told me we had a year in ’07 when I got the gig. He was, like, ‘Yeah, we’ve got about a year left.’ And here we are, still making music and we’re gonna be touring when this whole virus crap is over.

People have no idea, so that’s why I told myself I’m just gonna put a book together that’s gonna be about the realism of getting promised all this stuff.

Practicing and getting really good at your art is just one part of the whole equation.”
