Bakersfield nu-metal titans Korn proved tonight why they’ve shifted over 35 million albums in a career that has spanned twenty years. With Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor standing metres from the stage singing along to every word of iconic metal anthems like ‘Good God’ and ‘Falling Away From Me’, Korn delivered a performance that befitted their legendary status. The sight of Jonathon Davies striding out from the wings playing his bagpipes for ‘Shoots And Ladders’ was a spine-tingling moment as was the sight of 10,000 kids losing their shit to ‘Blind’ – the song that started their amazing journey two decades ago.
I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
