Bam Margera: Just everything was vegan.

Brian Welch: I was eating horribly. It was crazy. I was in the gutter.

Margera: I was dying.

Welch: But there was a section of crazy-looking kids, hardcore bands and screaming. I was making so much money.

Margera: That was $400,000. My mom really liked it, so I got it for her, and I'm always on tour in California and stuff, so it's pretty much her house.

Welch: At first I was crazy, I was a nut and it was a big joke to them.

Margera: Before it was just an 8mm video camera, and we would have to keep recording over the same tape because no one wanted to buy a new one.

Welch: Archie J. Muise, who worked with the Doobie Brothers, did some rhythm guitar for me when I was out of the studio because of meltdowns. I was going through a lot of changes, so sometimes I’d freak out in the studio if I had a problem and bailed out.

Margera: Dude, I'm on so many airplanes, like suppose I just crash on one?

Welch: It’s about that everyday intimate relationship with God.

Margera: Just going in the woods and just being an idiot.

Welch:  I came home after a tour after taking my daughter on the road with me, and she was skipping around the house singing “All Day I Dream About Sex,” a Korn song. She didn’t know what she was singing, but it sounded so weird.

Margera: So I gave her a call, and I just went over to her house, and we were just watching TV and shit.

Welch: Some of the countries had a penalty of death if you get caught with drugs, and I was scared.

Margera: I'm just like, I'm gonna do this and don't bitch about it, and then cooler shit will happen later on, and it is, so I'm not really worried about it.

Welch: To make a long story short, we prayed for him and he gave his life to the Lord.

Margera: Swear.

  • korn always struck me as vaguely religious, at least in the scummy Catholic priest way. it's fitting one of them ended up becoming a jesus freak, turns out he's the weirdo while the others are living easy on vans warped tour money doing the same thing summer after summer/. freak on a leash at 40.
