THE LAST WORD
The ultimate questions on life, sex and cheese clogging.
This week, Korn guitarist Head spews it up to Paul Elliot:
LAST TIME YOU WERE IN A FIGHT?
"Fist fight? I haven't been in a real fight since I was 11 or 12. Oh no, I remember -- I was in a fight when I was 16. Some dude called to me because he thought I was someone he didn't like. I turned around and he socked me. I was on the ground and it was over. Next thing I know, the guy was outside and all my friends were beating his ass. That was the fight -- I was on the ground!"
LAST TIME YOU MADE A FOOL OF YOURSELF?
"In Las Vegas. I had my quarters in one hand and a drink in the other. I was getting the change all situated and I went, whoosh, and poured my drink all over my shirt. People were laughing at me. I felt like an idiot and got all hot. That sucks!"
LAST TIME YOU SAID NO TO DRUGS?
"I just drink. I'll take a puff of some 'erb once in a while. Alcohol's a drug, so I guess my answer is.... not that much."
LAST TIME YOU PUKED?
"I don't puke, man! Three, four years ago. I don't drink hard alcohol either -- I just drink beer, and I know when to quit. These other fuckers in the band will drink all night. They wake up with a shitty hangover going 'Awwwww!', and I go 'Why didn't you quit?'. In Europe I wake up everyday with the worst hangover with that fucking beer. That shit is crazy. It's like double the alcohol, huh? I like American beer because you can drink it all night."
LAST PORN MOVIE YOU SAW?
"Somebody put one on in the bus last week. 'Butt Slammers' or something...."
LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
"Probably a month ago, just getting into shit with the girl. It's hard, you know, being gone on tour all the time and having a relationship. She has a hard time sometimes. This year I've seen her a lot. She came out to Europe for 10 days, so that's good. We go with it. It just gets hard sometimes."
LAST RECORD YOU GOT INTO?
"Sublime. It's a different kind of music for me. It's like folk music meets some hip-hop and punk and reggae. And Limp Bizkit it cool too."
IF YOU HAD A LAST MEAL, WHAT WOULD YOU EAT?
"Macaroni and cheese, because I'm a cheese lover. Anything with cheese. I love cheese. That's why I never shit! I get clogged up, ha ha!"
LAST TIME YOU WERE MISTAKEN FOR SOMEBODY ELSE?
"When I got knocked out at that party. They go 'Richard!', I turned around and boom! And Richard's over the other side of the room having a beer with someone! Actually, the last time I got mistaken for someone else was a week or two back. We were playing in Denver and I was walking down an alley and these kids came up behind me and they go 'Hey Munky, where's Head?'. And I go 'I don't know'. Those dudes must not be familiar with us...."
LAST PERSON ON EARTH YOU'D SLEEP WITH?
"Fieldy. Ha ha ha!"
LAST TIME YOU WERE CAUGHT DOING SOMETHING NASTY?
"Oh man, these questions are tough! Okay, my girlfriend found some magazines under my bed. Ha ha ha! It was a while ago, a year and a half ago. I was just cold busted. I didn't know they were there. But she found 'em!"
LAST TIME YOU FELT AFRAID?
"When I saw this plane crash on TV I got this weird fucked up afraid feeling. We fly a lot. It would suck to be in a plane and know you're gonna die in a few seconds. That thought trips me out sometimes. That's why I got to get drunk or take sedatives or something on a plane, just to make me mellow."
HOW LONG CAN YOU LAST?
"How long can I last? At anything? Our band will last just as long as people let us. We'll last just as long as people want us. Or until I fucking fall over dead."
