We were recently afforded some interview time with Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer and took the opportunity to chat about the band’s Grammy nominations/wins over the years. The multi-platinum (and two time Grammy Award-winners) were up for 2016’s “Best Metal Performance” with their song “Rotting in Vain” off their Nick Raskulinecz-produced album The Serenity of Suffering.

A kind and mellow Munky discussed Grammy Awards, his favourite Korn song ever, how Jonathan Davis thinks Korn is not a metal band, their Hollywood fan in Brad Pitt, Tomb Raider and much more!
