Korn’s iconic vocalist Jonathan Davis was the recent guest of the famous host, Eddie Trunk and talked about his favorite music and the beginning of his music journey.
Here is what Jonathan Davis said about the record that changed everything, transcribed by Ultimate-Guitar:
“The first record that changed the whole thing was Pantera’s [1992 sophomore album] ‘Vulgar Display of Power.’
I started digging heavy music, then I got in the band, then I started listening to Sepultura, and then I went on to all this other stuff.”
“That’s cool, you came from a different angle. You said your favorite band was or is Duran Duran, which is actually, to me, I think it’s a travesty they’re not in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. That was the band that introduced you to music, that’s where it all started for you?”
“Oh, no. For me, it all started when I was, like, three years old, when I heard Andrew Lloyd Webber’s [1970 rock opera] ‘Jesus Christ Superstar.’ My dad and mom and step-dad did a local production of it.
My dad was a musician, I grew up all around music, but that started it. Then I was totally into show tunes and all stuff growing up as a kid.”
