Fieldy: 'We want to work with poor kids'

KoRn bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu speaks to exclusively to Rockaxis regarding side projects, upcoming shows and the band's lineup and whether they're ready to call it quits.
KoRn don't take a rest. Since the release of "Untitled," a lot of musicians have been through the band, and even the fans were afraid of the possible departure of the former guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer early this year during their European tour.
But even so, KoRn keep hitting the road, and now we are going to see them playing for the second time ever, in the Monsters of Rock festival in Santiago, Chile on Tuesday, 01 April.
While Jonathan Davis, Fieldy and Munky have the time to work in their own solo projects and do a tour all over the world, doing shows in Europe, South Africa and of course, South America, people have doubts about the band's continuity in these moments, when they don't have a stable lineup, and constantly arrivals and departures of musicians.
It has been a while since you released "Untitled" and the band had the chance to show the album in the United States and Europe. How the fans have received the new songs?
"Well, we play new songs every night, and even they have different reactions, it's plain to see that they like it a lot."
KoRn will be in Chile for the second time. What do you remember about the first time here?
"I remember that the fans were very crazy, they jumped all over the place and knew all the lyrics, it was one of the best shows we ever done."
We want to work with poor kids. We have to talk about it between us, because we don't know what we are going to do about that. In this second show you'll be sharing stage with Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society. What do you expect from this show?
"I think it will be one of the best we're going to do. According to what we have heard, it will be one of the biggest crowds we're going to play to for a long time, so I'm sure we're going to have fun."
Going back to "Untitled," first it started like a rumour, but then you decided to not title it. Why did you take this decision?
"We were thinking for so long for a name for the album, but nobody had ideas... So we just let it be untitled and our manager told us that the record label needed a title, and that gave us a new reason to make it untitled."
Even when the album is untitled, it has a very clear concept in music and lyrics. How much of the American society's influence the lyrics?
"I don't know, I don't write the lyrics, you should ask Jonathan."
But I guess that you share your opinion with Jonathan in that way.
"No... We're different people, we're very different."
We know that KoRn took a more ecologic side in the last Family Values Tour saving energy. In that issue, in addition to making critics about social and political issues, what is the band doing to make a better society?
"At this moment we aren't doing anything, but we want to work with poor kids. We have to talk about it between us, because we don't know what we are going to do about that."
Some people say that your experiemental sound is due to the departure of David Silveria and Head. How it has influenced the chemistry in the band?
"Actually what happened is that it made us push ourselves and to work harder to become better musicians, because we weren't ready to give up. I think that it really influenced us, but in that we have a better quality in our music."
For a long time KoRn had a stable lineup, but since David left the band how is the performance of the band affected?
"Like I told you before, everything that had happen to us until now had made us unite more as a band, to push ourselves as musicians. And at this moment, we have Ray Luzier, he's one of the best drummers I've ever played with in my career. He's amazing, so we are happy with what we have and how we are now."
Brooks Wackerman, Terry Bozzio, Joey Jordison and Ray Luzier have been the drummers of KoRn for about one year each. Have you thought about getting a full-time drummer until David comes back?
"We haven't talked about it. We're living today."
Are to telling me that there's a little possibility he'll come back?
"He may come back. I don't know. I don't know if David is coming back."
Talking about the future of the band, Munky said that KoRn will release an album with covers that will include "We Care a Lot" from Faith No More and "Head Like a Hole" from NIN. Will you release that album?
"That was some songs we played in the studio while we were taking a break from recording. We have a lot of registered covers, but we don't have a date to launch it, although we definitively want to do it."
We also know that you have a parallel project called Stillwell. How are you doing with it?
"Yeah, I have a project called Stillwell, we're going to release an album called 'Street Metal'. I play a few guitars in it, but I mainly play the bass. It will be ready in about six months, and I work with Q-Unique. He has published a couple of CDs, he's had tours all over the world, he's a real artist. And also I will make a solo album. It'll have bass solos, a jazz style and I hope I can release it in the coming months."
Well I'd like to thank you for your time. Can you leave a message for the KoRn fans in Chile?
"We're going to rock it for all of you, we're going to play a lot of songs, a few from all the albums. God bless you all and don't miss this show!"
Thanks to Dead for the translation.

KoRn's performance at Argentina's 2008 Quilmes Rock festival is due to streamed live on online radio.
According to South American fan site KoRn Mex, radio station Rock&Pop 95.9 FM will be airing the entire festival throughout the day today.
KoRn will be playing at the festival after Argentinian metal band Rata Blanca and before the rock legend and headliner, Ozzy Osbourne.
KoRn are due to be hitting the stage of the Quilmes Rock festival at 20:50 local time (23:50 GMT) and will play for approximately 75 minutes.
This will be the first time ever that KoRn will be performing in Argentina. They almost did in their 2002 Latin American Tour, but due to a crisis in the country they had to avoid Argentina.
"Everything was very crazy, so we had to avoid Argentina," vocalist Jonathan Davis told Clarin.com.
''We want to work with poor kids. We have to talk about it between us, because we don't now we are going to do about that''
