's James "Munky" Shaffer
has revealed that having Brian "Head" Welch
back in the band after a seven-year absence was like seeing his "brother"
As Metal Hammer
reports, Head rejoined the Californian group last year and, according to Shaffer, the band missed the co-founder's creative input, while hooking up was like seeing a long-lost family member.
Speaking with Alex Hinson
from the Michigan Times
, the guitarist says: "A lot of fans have said it's great to have him back. Every time they say that, I always think, 'it is, but not as great as it is for me.'"It's like you hadn't seen your brother in so long and now he's back in the family. I think the band have really needed him for a long time. Now we can create that powerhouse that Korn is supposed to sound like - a wall of guitars. "It's so pleasing to not only our fans, but for us when we were in the studio - coming up with riffing and creatively. It's a lot of fun."
Meanwhile, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis
hooked up with Asking Alexandria
on stage at the Gibson Brands AP Music Awards
at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
, Cleveland for a cover of Duran Duran
's "Hungry Like the Wolf."
