Korn vs Droid
Long Beach, California band DROID has reportedly left the KORN-headlined “Bi#%h! We Have A Problem” tour after one of its members got into a fight with KORN guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer. However, contrary to published reports, Munky required no stitches for the injuries sustained in the altercation and he is taking “total responsibility for the fight,” which was described as “a dumb, drunken stupid moment” by a source close to KORN.
A photo of what the Little Rock, Arkansas radio station 100.3 The Edge claims is a picture of “Munky on the ground, knocked out, after drinking heavily” has been posted at this location.
DROID’s self-titled debut album was released through Emotional Syphon Recordings, Munky’s new record label.
In an early September 2007 message posted on his record company’s MySpace page, Munky stated, “DROID is one of the reasons that I started this label. Me and Jamie from DROID have been friends for a long time. Back when KORN was living in Long Beach before we got signed, I met Jamie. He was just a kid back then, but we instantly clicked. I started giving him guitar lessons, and we became really tight. Back then we’d cruise around Long Beach, hit up local spots and just kick it. I helped him learn guitar early on, and he’s become such an awesome player. He’s also been with me and KORN since the beginning. He was there as a friend and supporter from before we were signed up until now. So it’s awesome to be touring with him like this.
Sounds like it.
