Launch Radio Networks reports: When KORN singer Jonathan Davis was hospitalized in London last month with a rare blood disorder, the rest of his band still played at England's Download Festival, performing a 30-minute set with guest frontmen from 10 YEARS, SLIPKNOT, AVENGED SEVENFOLD and others. Davis told Launch that he couldn't have been more grateful to everyone involved. "I was very thankful that they did that and it was overwhelming to get, you know, that respect, to have those guys go up and do that, and then that the crowd responded to it well," he said. "You know, all we wanted to do was try and play some kind of show for those fans that paid to come see us. I know I wasn't there, but we tried to do what we could do, and I think it worked out great. Everybody did their best to pull off what I do, so I was stoked."
The singer added that he thought Corey Taylor of SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR did the best job.
Davis is currently recovering at home in Los Angeles from the infection, called Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), which sent his blood platelet count plummeting to dangerously low levels.
KORN will be joined by DEFTONES, STONE SOUR, 10 YEARS and other acts on the Family Values tour, which begins on July 27 in Virginia Beach.
