Korn Frontman Itching To Get Back On Stage

Jonathan Cohen of Billboard.com has issued the following report:

KORN's Jonathan Davis is happy to be alive after a recent near-fatal bout with a blood infection, and he's itching to get back on stage.

"I feel good, but I feel like I want to jump out of my skin," he told Billboard.com by phone from his Los Angeles home, where he will rest until the July 27 start of KORN's Family Values tour.

As previously reported, Davis was rushed to a London hospital earlier this month after developing the blood disorder immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), forcing KORN to scrap the rest of its European tour.

"We had just done a show in Hamburg, Germany," Davis recalls. "I was on the bus and noticed all this bruising all over my body. It wasn't bad, just here and there, but I was like, what the hell? This ain't right. I don't remember hitting myself or anything, and I never bruise."

Wow, I can't believe these guys still have so many fans. They haven't had a good album since the late 90's. But, who am I to judge? Glad he is ok.

agreed with post 8 but I'm abit more harsh.

The last good song this band squeezed out was Did My Time and the lyrics were still pretty meh.....Last good album from front to back.....Why that would be their debut IMHO.

Ok dude........ First of all, you don't know what the heck you are talking about! JD's voice is haunting..... and he can do so much with it! I get so sick of bands where every song sounds the same because the singer has 1 style and 1 pitch....... If you want to stay boring, and listen to bands that have no talent...... be my guest..... You need to get a life, clean out your ears, and bow down to the almighty KoRn!

it just aint KoRn without Jonathan Davis, the UK download festival at donnington park this year was a prime example of what KoRn sounds like with other vocalists, worst part was Blind performed by Matt, blind was ruined imo, bottom line being, no Jon no Korn

Post 16,17,18, I am full agreement with you. Jon is KORN, no one ever could possibly sound like him. His vocals are unique. He is the reason why I LOVE this band. Oh, wait, I meant to say, I am obsessed with this band.

KORN IS MY DRUG.

Bloodthirsty- I last saw KORN in March and Jon sounded phenominal. The only homo you hear is you when you are singing along to his songs. You are totally distorting his sound. You should either stop singing, or turn up the volume so you can't hear yourself. FAG.
