Another Korny Christian

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Another member of the heavy metal band Korn has overcome drug addiction by becoming a Christian.

Korn’s bassist, Reginald Arvizu—who calls himself Fieldy—will release his book, “Got the Life: My Journey of Addiction, Faith, Recovery and Korn.”

He says he was a mean addict and womanizer who quit drugs cold turkey when his father, a born-again Christian, told him his dying wish was for his son to find God.

Fieldy says Jesus Christ and the Bible were his only rehab, and the change in his life is “an amazing and powerful thing.“ Now he’s married with three children and working on a new album with Korn and his side project, Stillwell.

Fieldy’s former bandmate, Brian “Head” Welch, left Korn after becoming a Christian in 2005.
