Korn guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer has shared a new video on his official Instagram account and revealed how Late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington helped him for getting sober.

In the caption of his video, Munky said that Chester is an important part of his life and helps him stay sober. He also added that he stayed sober for a few months after seeing Chester during a U2 concert in Sydney Australia.

In addition, Munky expressed that Chester gave him confidence not to drink and the late singer didn’t drink during the concert. This important case was a big step for Korn guitarist to remain sober.

Here’s what Muck wrote:

“Chester was a very important part of me getting sober 10 years ago. I had only been sober for a couple of months when I saw him at a U2 concert in Sydney Australia.

It was one of the first times I had been in that environment, with people drinking all around me. Seeing him at the concert honestly got me thru and gave me the confidence to make it that one day without drinking cause he was sober then It was a big step for me at that point. I’m honored to be part of this.”

He also thanked Gray Daze and his bandmate, Brian Welch, for taking part in the new ‘Amends’ album. He continued:

“Thanks, Grey Daze and Brian Welch for including us on the new Amends album, out July 26th.”

The official Instagram page of Grey Daze commented:

“We loved working with you on this very special project Munky.”
