Korn's Head: ''Never Never' Almost Didn't Make the New Album'
Joining his fellow axeman Munky, Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch admitted that he wasn't too thrilled about "Never Never" being the lead single off the band's latest effort "The Paradigm Shift." Chatting with 106.3 the Buzz, Head pointed out that the tune barely made the album and was wrapped up as a last-minute effort. "I didn't even play guitar on that song," he said. "Munky threw a guitar on it and the producer was like 'Yeah, let's just throw it in there, but I don't think we're gonna do it.' "And then the drummer, Ray [Luzier], was doing drum tracks - they're getting ready to pack up and leave and he said 'What about that one song John did and [the producer]'s like 'Nah, I don't think we need to.' And he goes, 'Well, we're here, let's just lay some drums on it.' He was like 'All right, here we go.' [chuckles] We did it quick and then when they wrote the lyrics and everything it just kinda stood out for them as a good first radio single." Similarly to Munky's recent statement, Head noted that the track isn't a good representative of the whole record, which is much more heavier. During the rest of the interview, Brian talked about the need to compromise between the guitar-driven approach and dubstep injections singer Jonathan Davis insists on, stressing it ultimately led to a top-notch effort. "The Paradigm Shift" saw its release on October 8 through Prospect Park Records.
