    There is no denying he had talent even without a band. Holy shit!!!!! This is good.

    Tell me not... They should make a movie on JDs life before korn and begin it in high school and end it after korns self titled was a success.... So it'd probably be a long movie because that's covering his sexart times high school times, recording things in high school and what he did outside of school. That'd be fucking great but I don't know who would play him. Please share this to at least try and get it out there to be made because I know all of you think about what he went through in life

      I would love a movie about Jonathan Davis's past. That's mainly because it would be filmed right here in Bakersfield.

    I think they called this stuff new wave back in the day. Jonathan Davis is insanely talented making music. its takes all five guy in korn to really make korn what it is even without David I think Ray is the better drummer and korn has evolved bigger then what it would have with David. But there is no questions that Jon Davis is the driving force of Korn

    Well it is said on Wiki that our boy's fav band were Flock of Seagulls. Also there are videos with him covering Duran Duran, u can check it out. So its very evident even now how sensitive and st shy JD is. So for me its not a big surprise. New Wave was so popular all throughout 80s: Soft Cell, New Order, DM, Roxy Music, Visage, Talk Talk etc. And even now there are new bands. For example this song sounds very similar to early Lust for Youth demos
