Original Korn Lineup To Reunite?

According to The Pulse of Radio, rumors have surfaced that the original lineup of KORN be reuniting in the not-too-distant future. No other information was offered as to when this could happen or whether the original five members would record a new album or hit the road. KORN's lineup was stable for the first 12 years and six albums of the band's existence, until guitarist Brian "Head" Welch left the group in early 2005 to devote his life to Christianity. Drummer David Silveria followed in late 2006, taking a "temporary hiatus" to spend time with his family and oversee his restaurant business. Singer Jonathan Davis, guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer and bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu have carried on with a revolving cast of touring and studio musicians in the interim, vowing not to find permanent replacements.

KORN's eighth studio album, which was untitled, came out last summer.

The band has trips to South America, Australia and New Zealand planned for April, after which Davis will embark on a solo European tour in May and June.

Shaffer recently started a new project called FEAR AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM, with a self-titled debut album due to arrive on August 8 through his own Emotional Syphon label. The CD also features guest appearances by past and present members of FAITH NO MORE, LIMP BIZKIT and BAD RELIGION.

Arvizu also has a solo project reportedly in the works, while Welch published a memoir last year titled "Save Me from Myself: How I Found God, Quit Korn, Kicked Drugs, and Lived to Tell My Story".

I really think this is some sort of joke, and its not a funny one, I havent been into these guys in years. I didnt buy their last cd and I was really disappointed with Take A Look In The Mirror, and See You On The Other Side. They lacked those solid tracks that got me into Korn, if this doesnt happen I wont be disappointed and if it does, I dont think I will buy a ticket or cd, unless they only play their old stuff or put out one hell of an album

If Head came back, I would be more than shocked...I can say I'd rather hear the original Korn than a patched-together lineup that includes a midget in a rabbit suit

I think that Head would rather defy his god's wishes than Korn produce anymore albums to infect our radios and malls. I hope to the gods his return will inspire them to make an album at least as good as self-titled or Life is Peachy. Probably not though, he will force them to go christian rock or something so they can actually sell some records.

Take a Look in the Mirror had quite a few killer tracks, but I agree, I am a bit tired of korn.

Hell, if that ever happens, (and I'm sure it won't) the music will never be the same like it used to years ago. Gotta give em props though, they are the ones who invented my favorite genre of rock, NU-Metal!

Maybe they will all convert to Christianity and become a Christian rock band. That would be absolutetly hilarious.
