Nu-metal icons Korn have reportedly been shot at while on tour in Iowa. A single bullet struck the band's tour bus in the early hours of the morning while they were parked in Davenport, Iowa. Thankfully, the bullet didn't manage to reach the interior of the bus and no one was on board the bus at the time, so the band and crew were unharmed. Guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch shared a photo on his Instagram showing the bullet hole and commenting on the unusual and no doubt unsettling incident.
"A couple days ago in Iowa we received a bullet to one of our buses in the middle of the night, nobody on the bus thank God, and the bullet didn’t penetrate the interior of the bus 💪. Well, we’re back in Iowa and hoping for a better welcome tonight Des Moines?! How about bringing some Saturday night energy to a Monday night concert for your boys??"
Korn are on tour in support of their latest album Requiem. In the weeks leading up to release, we were fortunate enough to sit down for a lengthy chat with the band's legendary guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer to talk about the creative process and origins of Requiem, the secret to the band's longevity and their influence on current heavy music, taking several detours along the way, to gain insight into what the life and drive of one-half of the metal world's most influential and recognisable guitar duos.
