korn guitarist Korn Guitarist Says Live Performance Shouldn’t Be too Perfect

In a recent interview with Sebastiano Mereu of From Hero To Zero, KORN guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer said of live performances: "I think it still has to be organic, it still has to come from a real place. I think as genuine as you can be and still being professional in the production side of things. You want people to come back. At the end of the show, you want people to [go], 'Wow, that was an amazing experience. I can't wait to see them again.'

He continued: "When I go see a band, I like to see the inconsistencies in… I like when someone makes a mistake on stage.

I don't know… That's just me."
