HM was honored to be invited to a special moment in Korn’s life as a band, as the Bakersfield, Calif. quintet were inducted into the Guitar Center Rock Walk, an honor held by other members such as BB King, Queen and AC/DC. Dreadheaded friend of the band, Rob Zombie, gave the induction speech, from the heart with no notes, in a style all his own.

Korn just released The Paradigm Shift, their first record with founding member Brian “Head” Welch, who rejoined the band after eight years apart. “I came back at the right time,” he quipped. Here, the band accepts their entry in the only way they know how.
