Korn's Munky: "Rihanna is a badass bitch"


Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer was recently interviewed by Louder Noise, you can read some excerpts below.


About the progress of the songwriting sessions for Korn's new album: "We have a lot of demos done right now on the new stuff, not full songs, but they're rough ideas of mostly guitar riffs and some drums, all demoed. There's about, almost twenty ideas, which is good. It's a good start, good enough for us to get in the studio and start recording it and shaping it."

About Korn's remix of pop superstar Rihanna's "Bitch Better Have My Money" song: "I was excited to do it, you know. I thought it would be cool, because there was just… I mean, she's a badass bitch, straight up, and to have these two worlds put together seems odd, but it oddly works. I think she's a metalhead, you know. She definitely has a metalhead edge about her, her lifestyle… I've not yet met her, but I'm sure I will soon, so I can really get her take on it. But it was fun… It was fun to do."
