Korn speak: "The demands Bozzio made were offensive"...

It appears as though korn, who are currently on tour with Joey Jordison playing drums, were less than happy with the demands that legendary drummer Terry Bozzio, hired to play drums on the album, made once the album was completed.

In a recent interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, guitarist James 'Munky' Schaffer had this to say...

"There were certain demands that he made. We weren't ready to meet those demands. We just brought him in to write. It's like some chick that you hang out with and all of a sudden they want to move in. What do you say to that? 'You were supposed to stay for the weekend, but you moved in all your (stuff).' It was kind of like that.
"He was a great guy and a phenomenal drummer. But the demands that he made were offensive. He wanted to be a member of the band, and that included ownership. We were like, 'What? You want to have 25 percent of everything?' We can't just sign away the right to music on a whim. Then all of a sudden he slaps us with this."

Korn's latest untitled album is out now featuring some fine work from Mr Bozzio. We recommend you pick it up today!
