KORN Gutarist Says Reunion With BRIAN 'HEAD' WELCH 'Has To Come Naturally' - May 10, 2012

KORN was joined onstage by ex-guitarist Brian "Head" Welch last Saturday (May 5) at the Carolina Rebellion festival in Rockingham, North Carolina, marking the first time in seven years that KORN played with Welch, who left the group in 2005. The event, which electrified KORN fans everywhere, has naturally sparked talk of a full reunion with Welch to record and tour. But guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer told The Pulse Of Radio that the band isn't rushing into anything. "The whole thing needs to be approached very delicately, because it's such a fragile thing," he said. "It's just something that has to be super well-planned and it has to come naturally. And our experience with him on Saturday has all started from a positive place, and it wasn't forced and it was just natural. So I think if everything optimistically runs like that, that's all I can hope for. I'm really happy just to reconnect with my old friend."

Welch joined the band onstage to perform its classic song "Blind". According to The Pulse Of Radio, Shaffer later said that Saturday night's reunion was the first contact he had with Welch since his former bandmate left the KORN lineup.

Welch is currently on the road with his new band, LOVE AND DEATH, which recently issued a new EP called "Chemicals". KORN is touring behind its 10th studio effort, "The Path Of Totality".

KORN has just unveiled a new round of June tour dates, which will begin on June 15 in Quebec. Singer Jonathan Davis will do an opening set as DJ J. Devil.

    I just noticed that when the title got truncated it says "MUNKY SAYS REUNION WITH HEAD MUST COME" when the full title is "MUNKY SAYS REUNION WITH HEAD MUST COME NATURALLY", slight difference in meaning and was completely unintended.
