Korn: 'Music Now Is More Popular Than Ever, But You Can't Do Great Things Anymore'
Korn singer Jonathan Davis recently shared his thoughts on old vs. new ways of music industry, saying that although today is better time for music, he prefers the old-school approach.

"I think music now is more popular than ever. It's more readily available. People are listening to music more than ever now," Davis kicked off during a Shure chat.

"I think the old model, the way [record companies] used to do things, got old and tired, and people just need to think of new ways to put music out there. I mean, it is what it is," the vocalist continued (via Blabbermouth).

Further elaborating his stance, Jonathan added, "If you ask me, do I prefer the old-school ways? Yes, I do. Back then, you could do so much more, and we got to do such great things like doing that live thing at the Hammersmith [Ballroom in New York City] to playing a show on an airplane.

"Back then you could do big things like that. Now it's not possible. That's just for me personally; I miss those times. But I think for music in general, [now] is a better time," he concluded.

Korn's latest studio effort, "The Paradigm Shift," saw its release in October 2013 via Prospect Park, landing at No. 8 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
