Korn frontman Jonathan Davis has admitted that he misses being able to take drugs.

The singer has often remarked in interviews that he has been clean and sober since 1998, but has now confessed that he misses his past vices.

Speaking to Fasterlouder.com.au, he said: "If I could do drugs every once in a little while, I'd do the fuck out of them."

He insisted that he wouldn't be succumbing to temptation any time soon, though. "I know if I did [take drugs], I would be dead and I want to be with my children. It's a deterrent," he said.

Davis isn't the only member of Korn to have a druggy past. Original guitarist Brian "Head" Welch quit the band to seek treatment for a crystal meth addiction and bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu has recently revealed he has battled drug and alcohol problems.

Korn are currently on tour in Australia.

Thanks for the report to Nme.com.

    "Why'd You hit me like that Charlie?" "Cause you hit me man!" "That was weeks ago...!" Cocaine's a helluva drug.

    " If I could do drugs every once in a little while, I'd do the **** out of them." That's why you can't do them Jonathan, because doing the **** out of drugs does not go with doing drugs every once in a little while !!!!! Moderation people! Drugs are great (at least the ones Ive tried) they only become a problem if you abuse / overuse them and are not realistic about the effects they have on you. if you never try them, you are missing out on several different states of consciousness, that can only be experienced with drugs.

    gnfnrs has a point. It's not one of those things that just leaves you. Addiction is a f***ed up thing. You can be clean for over a year but having a dream about doing your poison brings cravings right back into your mind. Don't get me wrong, I think weed should be legal and maybe everything else too. Regardless of how bad SOME are, I can't tell someone what to do with themselves

    Man, even sober he's my least favourite kind of stoner: the one that won't shut up about drugs when he's not high.

    The answer to your question is actually pretty easy. The reason he would die if he did drugs "just once" is because we would not do drugs just once. When someone has been addicted to drugs already they cannot just go back once. If they do, even one time, then they have let themselves indulge in something they used to love again and I guarantee he would go back. To answer your other question, he can not just smoke weed here and there or have a beer every now and then either because I can tell by the way he talks about drugs that neither one of those are his drug of choice. If I had a bet I would say he used to do coke, and a lot of it. So If he did smoke one joint, it would make him really really want some coke and I bet he would go and do it, thus increasing his chance to die. So, do you get it now?

    Marijuana isn't bad once in a while but if you have kids you shouldn't smoke weed til they are 17 at least. It's sad to see your addiction follow you 10 years later. That's why I only smoke weed, all natural, none of that hardcore chemical stuff(Meth,Crack,Heroin)

    Some drugs are good. Gotta love marijuana. But drugs like crack, meth, herro...Well you just have to be an idiot to do that. I mean I don't know about the rest of you but I have morals. I like drugs...But that is too far.

    You people talk about addiction like those who are suffering through it aren't at fault. That makes me sick. People are responsible for their actions but apparently that has been forgotten. I do not defend or sympathize with anyone who's trying to get over addiction because they made their own bed to sleep in. They created their own mess. It is entirely their fault. Get over it.

Greetzzz Dude thats every School and on a serious note any one who has never had to fight drug addiction shut the **** up. its a lot easier said then ****ing done i know people and have been there myself in and out of rehab and drug addiction is like a disease. Once addicted always will be cause its always on your mind and also the part where is talking about that he would be dead is cause he wants to to them just a little but he knows he will go over board and not be able to quit and he would eventualy would kill him self or the drugs will kill hiim so until you know what it is like shut the **** up!

    kind of irresponsible of the site to make that a headline, a lot of impressionable youth go through this site and his fatal mistakes shouldn't be new to their eyes.

    Doesn't surprise me at all that guys in Korn used to do drugs. I mean, look at them. They're freaks. And their music isn't that great.

    Jon... Why don't you do drugs? Your wife does!! Whenever she comes to the number 96 she takes a little rohypnol and ****s for hours!!
    KataklysmDeth
    Fieldy also became a christian but thats beside the point, Jon has more respect points with me for being honest with himself and everyone else. At least he doesn't lie and say, "OH yeah im completely over drugs I dont have a problem" if he said that and did them again wouldn't all of you be angry at him? Of course.
