During a recent interview with Canada’s ‘iHeart Radio,’ Korn singer Jonathan Davis has revealed how he felt after losing his mother and wife. And also Davis revealed how this incident affected the recording process of their latest EP called ‘The Nothing.’
Deven Davis died in August 2018 at the age of 39 due to mixing five drugs, including cocaine and heroin. The former porn star suffered from alcohol and drug addiction throughout her life.
When asked if the album ‘The Nothing’ reminded him of his wife’s death during the current tour, he said that his old wounds had opened.
Here’s what Jonathan Davis stated:
“It’s helping. It’s like [pouring] salt on the wound, I guess — it’s gonna sting, but you keep putting it on, keep putting it on, and you kind of get used to the pain and it kind of numbs you out.
That’s what I’m going through now. But I’ve had a whole year to [process everything]… I’m moving on with my life, and I’ve got a lot of great things going on. So I try not to dwell in the past. It’s tragic, and it sucks, but I’m not gonna let it take me out. It’s not gonna win.”
Davis also said that after mourning his wife’s death, he would start a new life, and now he detailed on this issue. He continued:
“It’s amazing. It is. A lot less stress. Now I’ve got different kinds of stress. My son Pirate’s going through puberty right now, his teenage years, and I wanna pull my fucking hair out. But it’s beautiful.
I’m gonna watch him grow up. And [I’m] doing the thing I love most of all — being a dad. Those two things for me — being a dad and being a musician — are the same right there [in terms of importance]. So I’m happy I’m getting to do both things I really love.”
