KORN Guitarist Reveals His Favorite Gig Of The Year

Launch Radio Networks is reporting that KORN's been on the road for much of 2004, appearing on LINKIN PARK's Projekt Revolution tour this past summer and, more recently, headlining their own shows with CHEVELLE, BREAKING BENJAMIN and SKINDRED. But guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer talked about what made a European show with METALLICA and SLIPKNOT his favorite gig of the year. "Before METALLICA goes on, they have a jam room. They set up their stuff and before each show, they go in and warm up. Well, they're in there for two hours before they went on. They walk out, they're wiping sweat off of their face, and they go straight to the stage and play for two-and-a-half hours. Now that's really inspiring. And that, you know, made us look at ourselves and go, 'Wow, we need to practice!'"

Shaffer told Billboard.com last week that the band will finish writing their seventh studio album in January, with a release planned for the late spring or early summer of 2005. The band may also issue an EP called "Korn Kovers" in April.
