Korn star speaks about "offensive" drummer

By
Korn guitarist James Shaffer has revealed why the band's temporary drummer Terry Bozzio decided to quit.

Bozzio replaced David Silveria in December last year, and was promised that he would be able to stay with the group for at least one album and tour. However, Shaffner has revealed that Terry started to make demands which the other band members deemed "offensive".

"There were certain demands that he made. We weren't ready to meet those demands. We just brought him in to write," Shaffner told WENN. "It's like some chick that you hang out with and all of a sudden they want to move in. What do you say to that? 'You were supposed to stay for the weekend, but you moved in all your [stuff].' It was kind of like that.

"He was a great guy and a phenomenal drummer but the demands that he made were offensive. He wanted to be a member of the band, and that included ownership. We were like, 'What, you want to have 25 per cent of everything?' We can't just sign away the right to music on a whim."
