Korn To Receive RockWalk Induction
The band will be inducted in a private ceremony at the Guitar Center on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood on October 8th, the same day that their new album, "The Paradigm Shift," is released.
Korn frontman Jonathan Davis had this to say about the RockWalk honor, "When you look at the names of the other people inducted here all you can say is 'wow!' What an honor!"
Munky adds, "When we started out we were five guys in a garage with a dream. I'd like to think we tried our best to create some great music and an innovative sound but to be honest we are truly humbled to be included here."
Dave Weiderman, the Chairman of Guitar Center's RockWalk had this to say, "Korn is about as innovative and influential as they come. They have been purveyors of metal's progression since their formation, and are even credited with creating the Nu Metal subgenre. For these reasons, and many more, Korn is exactly the type of band the RockWalk is here to honor."
