KoRn's Photos Of Backstage Guitarist Rob Patterson

Photo of Korn

Band Photo: Korn (?)

IAmMetal.nl reporter SickO has managed to take several exclusive photos of KORN's session/backstage guitarist Rob Patterson (ex-OTEP) performing with the group at Holland's Lowlands festival on August 21. Check them out:

Photo#5

In a recent online posting KORN frontman Jonathan Davis had the following to say about the decision to recruit Patterson as a touring guitarist following the departure of Brian "Head" Welch:

"We hired Rob Patterson to play guitar for the European dates but he will not be on stage. We don't want to use samples or tape, 'cause that would suck. We are not ready to have a new guy on stage with us. This is for the first Europe run only. We have some new exciting ideas on how we are gonna play live in the future and I am sure it will blow your mind."

KORN's as-yet-untitled new album is scheduled for release on November 22 via Virgin. The album's first single, "Twisted Transistor", is scheduled to go for radio adds on October 3.

i think its awesome that they kept the true face of KoRn by not adding in some extra, jon stays true to his band and its nice that they will never officially replace head...after alll...who needs a replacement when they have monkey?

As much as i hate korn and Otep I think it's a little insulting that he cant be on the stage
no amount of money is worth playing with a bunch of selfish pre-madonnas esp. korn.

to post number 8

they will eventually "officially replace" head. if you read the arcticle closely, you will read that they are only keeping him off the stage for this european leg of their tour.

u guys r f***in idiots korn sucks there pretty f***in gay do songs with rappers and make sh**ty music Korn lacks so much like heavyness, solos, complex riffs, vocalist (davis sounds like fag or maby a cat who has the ability to speak), simple f***in power chords and music. THere f***in Nu-Metal at the worst crossing over into bad alternative and f***in rap ( look at follow the leader with Ice Cube, Fred ( i have no talent) Durst and some other idiot )and those last ones had rappers or rap like songs like that stupid as hell ya'll want a single plus that sh**y cameo cover whatever the f*** it is, the only thing ill say is a kinda like there S/T but kinda im glad i had people burn me there last couple of Cds and it was a waste of a blank CD listen to real f***in music not gay a$$ Korn

just a question, i might be confused here why the hell is he backstage playing? put him on the stage. in my opinion it would be kind of humiliating to be hired to play but then you have to be stuffed in the back where no one can see you. its kinda f***ed up.

heh....good to see this thread hasn't fallen apart yet......Christ....

Anyway, the whole concept of having a BACK STAGE GUITARIST stinks of childishness.....I liked Korns first record just to set the record straight, I dont hate them blindly but they sound less impressive with each record.
