Former KORN Drummer Says Band's New Music Is 'Not Funky And Groovy' Like Early Albums

Former KORN drummer David Silveria says that the band's current musical output is "not funky and groovy" like the early material the California-based group wrote and recorded while he was playing with them.

Asked by fans on his Facebook page if he has heard the new KORN single "Never Never", Silveria replied: "For all the fans asking, the answer is no, I have not heard a new KORN song. All I can say is I'm sure it's not funky and groovy like the original KORN. I don't even need to hear it to know that."

Silveria in February pleaded guilty to a charge of allegedly driving under the influence. In exchange, prosecutors dropped the hit-and-run charge in connection with the March 2012 incident in which the 40-year-old musician — who played with KORN for 13 years — rear-ended another car on his way to breakfast in Huntington Beach, California.

Silveria was sentenced to three years of informal probation, a three-month first offender program, and he was ordeded to attend a M.A.D.D. victim impact panel.

Silveria last year joined forces with ANYONE members Riz Story and Miki Black in a brand new project called INFINIKA.

David left KORN in late 2006 in order to focus on family life along with running his steak house and sushi restaurant.

Current KORN drummer Ray Luzier has been a member of the band since 2007.

Luzier is known for his high-profile gigs with David Lee Roth, Jake E. Lee and ARMY OF ANYONE.
