KORN vocalist Jonathan Davis recently spoke to the Artisan News Service about his first solo tour, which features the singer playing reworked KORN songs, covers and songs from the movie he scored, "Queen of The Damned". Davis talked about what his favorites are live and what the vibe of the shows has been like.
"'Queen Of The Damned' songs I love," he said. "There are KORN songs that I really like, 'Hey Daddy', and 'Kick The P.A.' because they're so fun. They're super funky. Some of the shows there's chicks dancing in the aisles and people are dancing and head bobbing. It's a totally completely different thing than what Korn would be doing you know ours would be huge crowds of people mosh pits and just people beating the sh-t out of each other. It's just really crazy. This is more laid back, people having a good time, dancing. But this still has that dark vibe to it. It's weird, it's hard to explain."
So how do his KORN mates feel about Davis branching off solo?
"Field and Munk are very supportive," Jonathan said. "Munky is coming to see me tonight. Fieldy is going to come see me in L.A.. They're like, 'Do your thing,' because they know me and I'm obsessed with music. I love writing music and performing music, and recording music. When KORN had those couple of months off we did the break, we're taking a break. Munk has his record company he's working on, but that's more business. Me it's music, music, music, film. They're very supportive, and everything's good."
Davis notes that for collectors and those that have a new-found appreciation for Davis and his solo stuff, there's both a CD and DVD already available for purchase at the shows.
"Yeah I did... The day before we left for our first show I did a special show at Richard Gibb's house, the woodshed, and we did a DVD and a CD that we've got here that we're selling," he said. "It's amazing, the DVD is amazing, all the extras. Richard talking about the band, all the band members, me talking about the making of this whole project, the engineer talking about recording it and putting it all together. It was done in a crazy amount of time. We recorded it, filmed it, and had the product in my hand three days later."
