Ex-Korn Drummer David Silveria: 'Fieldy Is a Cowardly Little B-tch'

Drummer also bashes singer Jonathan Davis, full outburst details inside.

Ultimate Guitar

In a series of online rants, ex-Korn drummer David Silveria gave his former bandmates a major bashing, calling bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu a "cowardly little b-tch" just before focusing on singer Jonathan Davis. As Metal Injection reports, the drummer was first asked on Facebook about Fieldy's book and the part where the bassist claims calling David out for a fight. "Ha ha!" the drummer commented. "Fieldy never threw down his bass and tried to fight me. He is a coward with a big mouth and he knows I would beat his a-s like the little wimp that he is. I would love for him to talk shit to my face now. I would love to crush him like a bitch. "Sorry guys. Fieldy has acted like a tough guy for so long it's nice to tell the truth," Silveria continued. "Not only is he not a tough guy but he's a cowardly little b-tch. He never tried to fight me cuz he knows I would squash him like a bug. He acted like a tough guy on tour to our staff cuz he knew he could get away with it because our crew got paid well and didn't want to lose their jobs. "He used that to walk around acting like he thought he was a tough gangsta. Our entire crew laughed at him behind his back because they all knew he is a pussy. I would love to see him out somewhere with no security to protect the runt. He wouldn't say anything because he's totally scared of me." Further revealing the juicy details, Silveria continued: "Munky just puts up with them. A lot of people don't know this but after I left the band Jon and Fieldy would gang up on Munky trying to control him and Munky quit the band three times since I've been gone. When I was in the band I stood up to their control freak nonsense and Munky became their target after I left. "It's all nonsense because there is no reason for them to be a--hole drama control freaks when they could have been cool like Munky and I and just embraced the blessing of being able to play music for a living. Fieldy and Jon had drama almost daily. I never wanted anything to do with their stupid nonsense. I just wanted to enjoy being a rock star and rock the world drama-free!" David concluded, "The original Korn sound is gone. It's the JD show now and it just no good. Trust me Fieldy is not sorry. He is a punk for life. Before I left the band he became a Christian but he just really became a judgmental self-righteous idiot. Seriously." In a separate Facebook post, the drummer continued his ranting spree, this time around focusing on singer Jonathan Davis. Asked by a fan to comment on Davis' claims saying his drumming technique was gone, Silveria noted: "That’s ridiculous. Jon's balls were gone because his wife put them in a jar," along with a smiley face. So that's a lot of ranting we have here. Share your thoughts on the whole matter in the comments.

    Well I agree with him at least on the part claiming KoRn has turned into the Jonathon Davis show. Seriously, tell the guy to keep those f**king dubstep and electronic influences in his own projects and not KoRn's music
    Jonathan Davis's electronic stuff sucks. maybe that's why KoRn's music sucks now.

    I guess he reached the conclusion that there's no way the band will ever have him back, so he's just decided to burn the bridge and dish out the dirt. To his credit, what he says here sounds very plausible.
    David's timing could not be worse, but what he says does make sense. In the Deuce DVD which shows Korn's backstage and touring behind-the-scenes, David (and probably Munky) comes off as the most in control and down to earth guy of the band while the rest, as much as I love their music, behave in such an edgy, in-your-face way that they kind of throw me off.
    yeah, I noticed that too. Head didn't come of badly, but JD and Fieldy came off the worst (though Fieldy is supposed to have changed since then according to Head (SMFM)). They all made great music though!
    everyone who writes nonsense about David "acting like a teenager" has really lost the point, that he's just ANSWERING to their bullshit, lying about him in every interview, book or whatever.
    well if some cowardly idiot writes bullshit in his "book" about David, then whats immature about telling the truth? i met fieldy and would believe everything david said about him.
    This is silly. Out of the blue David's been saying all this shit about Korn after not speaking out for years? Perhaps it's to gain attention since his career has been reduced to little since leaving? And, as well as that, he says he wants to be back in Korn and "restore the groove" with all 5 original members yet he's insulting his bandmates and being immature about past stuff. Yeah, because that's really going to get you back in the band, bellend.
    These were comments on a post a fan made on his personal Facebook page. While I don't agree with the content- This was all on his personal Facebook page. Not him speaking to press or any of that shit.
    These days, there's really no distinction. If it's in the public realm, that's all that matters. Now, if it were, let's say, a private message between him and and fan, and the fan posted it for all to see, that might be a bit different, but wouldn't change the fact that he still said (typed) it and that it got out for all to see.
    This whole band is a bunch of fruitcakes. Bunch of washed out nothings stuck in 1996. Someone should tell the band that pop metal went out of style the day they started recording it. Bunch of snot nosed hippy bullshit eating monkeys, go back to your homeland and eat some bananas. OoooGA BOOGA wAKKA WAKKA oogaa chakka wakka Great lyrics guys, keep the turds rollin.
    There's always got to be the pussy who takes the time to comment on an article about a band they don't like. Lol.
    Year Zero
    Most opinions are half true, so we can probably conclude that some of what David is saying is true. The other half of course is his ego.
    To be fair, when I met Feildy, he was a wankstain and I could/would have knocked him out if I wasn't high on MDMA.
    Although this comes across as sour grapes, I actually do believe alot of what he's claiming about Johnathan Davis and Fieldy.
    I love Korn, but this is hilarious. I'm glad he has resurfaced and is telling us shit we had no idea about... I mean we all knew Jon's balls were in a jar and Fieldy was a disrespectful little punk but I love them all. Jon's got a big mouth and often just parrots people. Their new album was good though. Ray is a brilliant drummer but David is a fantastic Korn drummer. Good thing Ray worked out. Good post. Can't see there ever being a full 5 back together but who needs it, that's what Issues is for
    This is all because in the past he said he'd like to come back to the band, but only if it were the original lineup. Now they've got Head back, but haven't asked David to come back, so he's bitter about it. He's just behaving like a spoilt child.
    Even though he's right that most of those guys are idiots and Korn suck balls these days, he's still acting like a teenager. This guy's supposed to be an adult for all intents and purposes, but seriously, I would expect better from a seventeen year old. These guys haven't done a good album since Life is Peachy, they should really quit.
    +1 for correctly saying "intents and purposes"!
    and +1 for you too sir!
    but not for you, sorry
    By the by, this little thread of comments starting with EqualofHeaven can henceforth be seen as how relevant David Silveria, let alone Korn, is at this point in time. Good day, UG.
    +1 for David... I can imagine everything he says is true, as its the only thing from this band to make sense in the last ten years. Everything else just seems to be a spiralling mess of confused intentions. - I kinda wish they'd stopped after TALITM.
    Right or wrong of him to blast them like this. He is right about most of it. Can't say whether he is right about fieldy being a bitch but it wouldn't surprise me. But there has been talk for years that everything else he said was true. So to hear it from him finally only seems to confirm it further that Fieldy and JD have been ruining this band. Oh well. Least there are thousands of other bands to listen to.
    What David says seems really plausible, and I think it's wrong to call him a 'bitter immature kid' if you've seen the way Fieldy acts you'd know Fieldy acts like a wannabe gangster. And I think he really got provoked from the thing Fieldy wrote. I listned to Korn and Deftones alot as a kid.. Korn always disappoints me however Deftones has yet to make a bad album. RIP Chi!
    Yet Silveria seems to be coming across as a bitter bitch himselfThere's putting down people and then there's throwing a hissy fit and Silveria seems to be doing the former. I understand being annoyed that he probably won't be able to play with them again, but this just makes him come across as a kid who can't spend more time on the computer than he's allowed
    I absolutely LOVE Korn's first 5 albums. That being said, nothing David stated seems false. Fieldy has always annoyed me with his little "gangsta" act, JD has definitely taken control over Korn and made all the music poppy and radio friendly, and Munky's always been the laid-back guy who probably does have to put up with a lot of drama queen shit. Honestly, everything David said makes sense to me. It may not to the rest of you, but you have to admit, something's definitely wrong with Korn these days...
    What he said about Fieldy being a bit of a poser could be true, and I honestly think he is being honest and not entirely wrong about certain things...but I would still bet money that Fieldy would be able to win a fight against him. David is too small. I think he might suffer from little-man syndrome.
    There's never gonna be a band that "rocks the world" drama free. For him to think he'd be able to do that makes HIM the delusional one.
    "Our entire crew laughed at him behind his back because they all knew he is a pussy." Kind of ironic...
    "It's all nonsense because there is no reason for them to be a--hole drama control freaks when they could have been cool like Munky and I and just embraced the blessing of being able to play music for a living. Fieldy and Jon had drama almost daily. I never wanted anything to do with their stupid nonsense. I just wanted to enjoy being a rock star and rock the world drama-free!" Coming from a guy who left the band, sold his tour equipment, and worst of all, modeled for fashion magazines and still used the KoRn name despite ditching the band. You're bitter as hell David. You aren't even half the drummer Ray Luzier is anywhere. Enjoy fading deeper in obscurity. **** tard.
    This was pretty funny. Korn is awesome. You guys just font like their new stuff because you're simple minded. Sorry not all bands can be like Metallica and never change. Industrial metal is the shit, looks like Korn has finally realized it
    @rmack4341, Fieldy never left. Head left. They both became Christians. Fieldy became one while staying with the band. Head left, converted, and has since come back after they've all found peace together. So technically, they weren't just catering to Head, as Fieldy converted while staying. Plus, they all worked it out together when Head came back. And Somehow I don't think any of this is true.. I feel like he's just butthurt Head is back and he isn't... I mean face it, when was the last time you heard anything about David Silveria til now? Or anything with David not involving Korn?
    Jonathan Klem
    And unlike Silveria, Head attracted thousands of fans even after leaving Korn. I met the band Korn through the Head (Love and Death), and I met true Christianity through the band ... Many think that being Christian turns hypocrite, and it could be that Fieldy has something wrong, but people forget that everyone is subject to errors. Do not expect anyone Korn perfect, you will not get to see them as well. I am Brazilian and here is needing more in mind Korn and Silveria who finds peace in his heart.
    Actually, this guy sounds like the coward. I bet if Fieldy got in his face he'd run away. Just pissed he isn't in the band anymore lol.
    I'd bet money the part about Fieldy is true at least. Any idiot who becomes a born again Christian and leaves a successful band is lame. It's a slap in the face. I get that he's back now, but he's changed. Letting him back in and catering to his new b.s. lifestyle is where that band went wrong. He's like the Kirk Cameron of rock.
