Korn's Jonathan Davis: 'I Miss the Nu-Metal Brotherhood'
Korn singer Jonathan Davis recently reminisced the days when nu-metal was in it's prime, accusing today's metal acts of snobbery.

Chatting with Metal Trails, the vocalist pointed out that back in the day, bands would help each other out rather than enjoy watching a fellow artist fall.

"Back in the '90s, the band camaraderie was all different," Davis said (via Metal Hammer) "We were all brothers, pushing each other on. Stuff we did with Bizkit or Staind, those bands, it was a brotherhood and we helped these bands along. It seems like it kind of got lost these days."

Touching on the matter of so-called "true metal," Jonathan described the movement as a group of kids trying to out-do each other. "You're dealing with kids," he said. "Kids are kids and there's always gonna be that friction. I just love all music and I'm not gonna hate on it. I don't care who came first or what kind of metal is better than what kind of metal. We just get on with all the bands."

Finally, the singer addressed Status Quo's Francis Rossi and his bashing comments regarding electronic music. "I'm not trying to talk down about the guy but I think he should pick up a laptop and try to write an electronic song," Davis noted. "It takes so much talent and so much time to really do that stuff right. I'm glad electronic music came into the metal scene. It needed to be updated and I'm all for it."
