||Jonathan Davis is lead
singer and probably the most publicised member of the KoRn quintet. Jon
was born on January 18th 1971 in California. One of his early jobs was a
coroners assistant, which is thought to have had a large influence on the
style of music which KoRn play.
At school, Jon was constantly teased
by fellow pupils who dubbed him a faget and nicknamed him "HIV".
Jon has publicly admitted that as a teenager, he was caught up in
confusion over his sexuality but would like to confirm that he "is
Before Jon joined KoRn he played in a
band called Sex Art and was spotted by Munky, who asked to join the band
LAPD, later renamed to KoRn.
Jon is married and has one son called
Nathan. As for his nickname....well he doesn't have an official one!
||This is Brian Welch, who
plays the guitar for KoRn. Brian is probably the most sensible member of
KoRn and is best friends with James [aka Munky]. Brian was born on June
19th 1970 in California and went to the same school with Munky. Brian is
married and has one daughter called Jennea.
Brian's nickname is "Head"

||David Silveira is the
drummer in KoRn. He was born on September 21st in California. David
started drumming from a very young age and his self belief and confidence
turned him into the fantastic drummer he is today. David joined LAPD which
also contained Munky and Fieldy. One of David's closest friends is Chi
from The Deftones [which are also listed on this webpage]. David's huge
build and good looks has earned him a modelling contract with Calvin

||Reginald 'Fieldy' Arvizu
plays the bass guitar in KoRn. His unique tuning of the guitar creates a
unique almost 'drumming' sound which underlies most of KoRn's songs.
Fieldy was born on November 2nd 1969 and in his spare time creates the
T-Shirts and various mechandise for the band. He claims that any of the
band members could do that but that they are too lazy! Fieldy is probably
best known for his excessive consumption of alcohol, and it has been known
for KoRn to carry buckets around in case Fieldy goes over the top! Fieldy
is married and has two daughters.
If you hadn't guessed already,
Reginalds nickname is "Fieldy"!
||James Christian 'Munky'
Schaeffer was born on June 6th 1970 in California. James musical career
began after a freak accident which severed one of his fingers. As part of
his rehabilitation, he was advised to take an instrument [he chose the
guitar] and hence his musical career began. Munky was originally in a band
called LAPD along with David and Fieldy.
Munky went to school with Brian
[Head] and learnt a lot of his guitar skills of him.
James' nickname, Munky, originated
from the fact that when he'd spread his feet out, people would comment
that they look like monkey hands!
