Korn's bassist-on-hiatus, Fieldy (a.k.a. Reginald Arvizu), has posted a video on his Instagram that updates where he's at right now as regards his bandmates and clarifies what the "bad habit" that caused him to take time off from the band starting in June 2021 really is.
Beginning on a note of optimism, Fieldy says he's "feeling great," "having a blast" and is the "happiest" he's ever been in his life. He talks about how much he loves and appreciates his fans, and how he never has a problem posing for photos with them.
He then clarifies what he meant when he described the reason for his hiatus as stemming from "bad habits." He says he's never even tried cocaine or heroin, but that he does like to have a Bud Light at the end of his day -- "as many as I want, I'm a grown man." He says that he's aware of his responsibilities and won't let his drinking get in the way of them no matter what.
He then turns to his relationship with the members of Korn, who he loves and has "known since seventh grade." He says they "have no beef," and he has "no problem with those guys." He also urges his fans to go see Korn live, "'cause they're rippin' right now. They're killing it."
He says he'll always be "Fieldy from Korn for the rest of [his] life," but that while his bandmates are his "homies and [his] brothers...We're just in a different place now," though they're "not even mad at each other."
Finally, he gives an update on stuff you can check out from him: his book, his solo bass album and "Rock the House," the new video from StilWell, his band with P.O.D. drummer Wuv and Arsonists' singer-guitarist Q-Unique. The video is inspired by Beastie Boys 1992 clip for the "So What'cha Want" from their album Check Your Head, while "Rock the House" is the title track to StillWell's upcoming fourth album.
