Korn’s Jonathan Davis On Fieldy: “I Pray That He Can Figure It Out And Get Better And Come Back And Be A Huge Part Of This Band Again”

As previously reported, Korn bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu is currently taking a break from the band to address some “bad habits.” Now, during a recent interview with Kerrang!, frontman Jonathan Davis and guitarist Brian “Head” Welch further discussed their bandmate’s hiatus.

Welch said the following:

“The best thing to do is stay at home, be with your family, and start processing. He’s got to find that healing. I still struggle with it. I had a few slip-ups with my ‘bad habits’ three-to-four years ago, so I understand it, but I dealt with it by hitting it head-on and stopping it from becoming a problem. I’m not concerned because I know he’s going to be okay.”

Davis added:

“I love him; he’s my brother. But I watched somebody I care about die and I’m not going to fucking do that again. I refuse to. I will feel guilt for the rest of my fucking life because of that. I tried my hardest but perhaps if I’d been a little bit tougher there’d have been a different outcome. I pray that he can figure it out and get better and come back and be a huge part of this band again.”

Despite his hiatus, Arvizu will still appear on the band’s new album “Requiem” (out February 4).
