Music was in his bones. From the time he was an infant, Fieldy watched his dad's band perform, and soon enough he found his own calling: the bass. After high school, with and little else, he left his small California town for the music scene in LA. Long before, Fieldy, Brian "Head" Welch, James "Munky" Shaffer, David Silveria, and Jonathan Davis would get togther and form a band with a completely new sound--Korn.
What happened next was something Fieldy has always dreamed of but was totally unprepared for: Korn exploded, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and fronting the nu metal phenomenon. Fieldy became a rock star, and he acted like one, notorious not only for his one-of-a-kind bass lines, but also for his hard partying, womanizing, bad boy ways. The more drugs he took, the more booze he drank, the worse he became.
By all appearances, Fieldy had the life. But he was on the dark path of excess, alienating friends, families and loved ones, nearly destroying himself and the band. It took an unexpected tragedy to straighten him out: the death of his father, a born-again Christian to a mysterious illness. Following his father's dying wish, Fieldy found God. Filled with the Spirit of his new faith, Fieldy quit drugs and drinking cold turkey, and found the best part of himself.
Got The Life is raw, candid, and inspiring--the ultimate story of rock and redemption.
