Wie berichtet, ereignete sich ein tödlicher Unfall auf dem Korn/Deftones Konzert in Atlanta am 30. Juli während der Family Values-Tour. Ein Konzertbesucher wurde so hart geschlagen, dass dieser zwei Tage später an seinen Kopfverletzungen erlag.
Deftones Sänger Chino Moreno und Korn Gittarist James "Munky" Shaffer äusserten sich jetzt in den Los Angeles Times über diesen Vorfall.
"I always make a point, when we're playing, if I see someone fighting we'll stop the song and tell them to chill out," he said. "Then we'll continue with the music. The music is secondary to people's safety."
"We were real sad," KORN guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer told the Los Angeles Times. "It's not the safest place to go, no matter who you are. Last night onstage I got hit in the back with a quarter, also with a cellphone. I get [stuff] thrown at me all night long."
KORN meets with fans at every tour stop.
"I've been fortunate enough to learn a lot from different people, being around the world," Shaffer said. "Everybody has the same problems, the same four or five things that they all struggle with: relationships, finance, personal issues. It keeps me grounded, you know?"
