Korn Frontman Battled Addiction While Making New Album

(TeamRock Radio) Korn frontman Jonathan Davis says he was 'in limbo' as the band made latest album The Paradigm Shift because he was recovering from his addiction to prescription drugs.

He'd been given Xanax to help him deal with anxiety issues, but took the pills for much longer than was safe. As a result he had to go to rehab before starting work on Korn's first record with Brian 'Head' Welch in over eight years.

Davis says: "I was not doing it recreationally I was doing it because I have anxiety problems. My doctor said, 'You should only be on this stuff for a month or so,' but it was a lot longer.

"I went to rehab in Bakersfield. A real rehab place, not some fru-fru place," he said. "I've been on prolonged detox for like five months now. I made the new record with one foot in limbo and one in reality." He had more to say.
