Korn Frontman Battled Addiction While Making New Album
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.
