5 People That Can Replace Fieldy On Korn’s Summer Tour


Here To Stay?

Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, leader of Fieldy’s Dreams and Stillwell, will be sitting out Korn’s tour with Staind this summer. As he takes this hiatus to address personal issues, the question has arisen: Who will take Fieldy’s spot playing bass for Korn? Tye Trujillo, son of Infectious Grooves bassist Robert Trujillo, filled in for Fieldy on Korn’s South American tour in 2017. He’s a good option. Jason Newsted? Rex Brown? Shavo Odadjian? ICS Vortex? Geddy Lee? All possible choices, but if the writers of songs like Ass Itch and Ball Tongue would allow us, we’d like to make a few suggestions.

Yngwie Malmsteen

Holy fuckadoodledoo. Can you imagine Yngwie turning Shoots And Ladders into a 15-minute virtuoso overture? His puffy shirt sleeves sticking out of a track jacket? Absolutely refusing to do any of Fieldy’s mannerisms? A total look of absolute disdain and disgust as thousands of middle-aged nu-metal dad’s flop into each other during a heavy part? Absolute solid gold. He doesn’t even need to use a bass or even learn the songs. Just go out there and be Yngwie, Yngwie.

Tom Araya

This one might make more sense than you’d think. Both are Ozzfest alums. They’ve played numerous festivals together. Korn has covered Slayer’s South Of Heaven live with fucking Kid Rock of all people. Watch it if you want to see the best worst thing today. Tom’s got plenty of time on his hands until Slayer’s inevitable reunion. Plus, I really just want to hear him yell the lyrics to A.D.I.D.A.S. in his standard, monotone Slayer voice. “ALL DAY I DREAM ABOUT SEEEEEeeEeEEEEeeeeeEEEEXXXXxxXXxXx!!!!”

Crash McLarson

The delightful teddy bear known as Crash McLarson has been playing bass for the The Aquabats since 1996. While it’s true that Korn and The Aquabats may be slightly different in terms of, well, everything, Crash can bring a new energy to the band. And look at that beard. Metal as heck. Plus, he can help them fight off such heinous villains as Cobra Man, The Sandfleas, and Powdered Milkman.

Psychobilly stand-up bass player

It doesn’t matter which band they comes from. Tiger Army, The Living End, Nekromantix, it’s all good. They’re already big slappy bois and girlz and most live in Southern California, so it’s natural. Just strap that giant-ass stand-up bass to their chest and bend over real low when they play. They can spin it around when Jonathan Davis does his scat-man routine. Maybe stand on the side of it during Blind. I don’t know, I’m just spit-balling here.

The keyboardist from Deathless Legacy

Just look at this guy.

I’d pay top dollar to see him do this on bass. Slappin’ that bass like he slaps those keys. Full facepaint, puffy ascot thing. I don’t care how bad it sounds. I don’t care if people huck $16 plastic bottles of Bud Lite at the band. It would be the best live show experience of all time.

What do you think? Anyone else that comes to mind that should get the gig? Some Crabcore guy? Victor Wooten? Carol Kaye? Let us know in the comments.
