Korn's Jonathan Davis talks about his collaboration with Marilyn Manson


Korn's Jonathan Davis was recently interviewed by Westword, you can read some excerpts below.


About working on a project with Big & Rich Jonathan said: "The Big & Rich thing, I'm doing a country record. It's a record to commemorate the Bakersfield sound. I'm not going country or touring as a country artist. But it's a compilation of a whole lot of Bakersfield-sound songs that I'm covering with country artists.'

He continued: "It's pretty cool. Big & Rich did 'Waitin' In Your Welfare Line' from Buck Owens. They're doing the background harmonies and all that shit. It's not like I'm trying to go country, though. I'm from Bakersfield, and it was a huge thing back in the '60s. I wanted to pay homage to that."

About his collaboration with Marilyn Manson he said: "We're going to get together and write some music and see what happens. I'm going to get back and start working with him on ideas and shit. We hadn't talked for a long time and we recently hooked up again. He was one of my best friends back in the day. We just rekindled our friendship and started talking a lot about doing something together. I love the dude to death. He's a great guy. So I'm down to do something cool."
