Jd and Amy Winehouse

Tue, Jul 26, 2011 at 2:06 AM By: Shawshank

Last night I had to the opportunity to ask Jd some questions, which he was gracious enough to answer for me. I decided to include them in this blog, along with some questions asked by other Korn users that you all might be interested in. I am going to summarize everything up, instead of quoting it directly, in order to make it a smoother read.

I asked Jd if he had ever met Amy Winehouse and what his opinion of her was. He told us he had never met her, and though “she was an amazing singer.”

Kcpjellybean asked how his new album was coming along. Jd said it was going good and that he was working hard on it.

I asked if he was going to play the bagpipes in his next album. He said he did not know.

Bambam asked what was going on with Warner Bro's and his album. He said he didn't know yet.

I told Jd we have been having problems with people getting banned off of Korn chat for petty reasons, or no reason at all (like my friend Tammie). I asked if we could get banning power taken off completely, or only making senior korn members mods. Jd said he wasn't aware that users could ban other users, and told us that he would talk to an admin about fixing this problem.

I asked Jd if he was tight with Chris Angel. He said not really.

Kcpjellybean asked if the Russian roulette stunt with Chris Angel (video below) was real. He said that it was and that it was a rush.




I asked if he had ever experienced anything more scary than that. He told us that autopsies were worse and that he had worked in a morgue for 6 years and that it had fucked him up. He said it was horrible.

When I asked how he ended up working in a morgue, he said “I'm a sicko.” He commented on what some other people had to say about it saying “It's hard,” and the hardest people to work with were babies. He also told us the song “Pretty” was inspired by his time working in the morgue.

Fuckacowcom asked if he knew Corey Taylor from Slipknot. Jd said he did and that he is a nice guy.

Kickthepa asked if he liked Duran duran and the Cure, and which Duran duran song was his favorite. Jd said he liked both of them, and that it was a crazy experience doing a song with the cure. He said his favorite Duran duran song is 'The Chaufer', (which is also kickthepa's favorite.)



I asked Jd who his favorite band to play with was. He said Marilyn Manson, who was crazy every night and entertaining.

I brought up how Trent Reznor says that Manson is starting to slip. Jd said “Well drugs do that to you.”

Negativedrone (1 of Conner's 30 usernames) asked Jd what his favorite korn song was. He said he doesnt know, it changes all the time.

I asked what his favorite kover song was. He said it was 'We Care Alot”, which is not out yet, according to Jd.

Finally, I asked if he thought there were any new bands showing potential. He said 'Hyro da Hero.' I am including one of their songs below. Thanks for reading guys. If you have any questions, comments, or rude remarks- please post below.

    Very nicely done! I am sure the chat was not as neatly put as in your post. lol :) Yea I had heard most of this from the korner chats but the Amy Winehouse part.

    I hope they fix the ban stuff it's kinda crazy. Some people NEED to be banned at times but it shouldn't be abused.

    Last time I heard an interview from JD he said his favorite korn songs were Hollow Life and Do What They Say. Thanks for asking him about Criss Angel; it was so funny when Criss surprised JD at the recording studio on his halloween special, but I can totally see why they aren't very close. They're like opposites. It's really great you got the opportunity to ask JD so many questions. Thanks so much for posting this!
