Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

While many rock biographies capitalize on harrowing tales of backstage chemical dependencies, Furman, the author of numerous biographies of teen pop stars, balks at the binges and instead offers a surprising glimpse of Korn as aggressive yet lovesick band mates who use their commercial success in the rap-metal realm to sustain comfortable family lives--a view that the National Organization for Women and Mothers Against Korn would find surprising. However, die-hard devotees of the Bakersfield, CA, quintet will be hard pressed to find any new or revealing information about their favorite kernel (Korn band member) in this scant work. Much of Korn's history has already been discussed in magazine interviews and posted on countless fan web sites. Yet with casual listeners greatly outnumbering Korn disciples, this would fit well into any public library where adolescents roam the shelves in search of something contemporary.

From Booklist

Here they are again: the black T-shirts, the sinister sneers. This time, they are the "diabolical blend of schizoid seven-string guitars, maniacal forked-tongue vocals, bludgeoning bass and pummeling drums" known as Korn, whose concerts are "an homage to 'roid rage," says Furman, that typically "end in a heap of sweltering bodies--spent from mirroring Korn's death-defying onstage antics." Death-defying? Well, the lads do owe a certain debt to Iggy Pop, though their antics don't really seem to be in quite the same league as the erstwhile Stooges leader's, let alone those of shock rockers like G. G. Allin or Wayne County. But Korn's is the sound of sullen youth, Y2K style, a rap and heavy metal fusion that youngsters who are not all thinking vile and malevolent thoughts respond to; and Furman's book, though fawning at times, tells the band's story well. Acquire it quick, though, before the next wave hits, and then, perhaps, schedule a staff retreat to go moshing the next time Korn komes to town. Mike Tribby

Korns life story on a book!!!!!
"mc_skammer"
Later in the book it also refers to Kid Rock's "Bawitdaba" as "Bamwitdaba." These writting errors are just irritating and are throughout this book.

I highly recommend this book to the folks wanting to know where Korn is really comming from.

This book is very imformative about Korn and it's members, from the early years of LADP, and SexArt, all the way up to the latest of them all, Issues. I highly recommend this book to the folks wanting to know where Korn is really comming from. Find out the pain Jonathon went through, and how much they like Jager. The informative abstracts from interviews make it more of a personal acount on the boys part, instead of the writer's. I hope every Korn fan will buy this book, it is worth every cent you pay. You also get some awsome pictures I've never seen of these dudes. But the real question is: "R U Ready"?

It is a accurate but really long time KoRn fans would know most of the information in it, it may help maybe give more details to it but really all the book did was make what i knew from "unofficial sources" official and legit for my research paper on Jon Davis as a writer. If you are a parent who maybe curious about there child's favorite band that screams FAGET! real loud it's a good read. KoRn fans who care about little momentos like that I guess it's worth spending the ten dollars on the book because if KoRn is a band who you've supported from start and beyond it's kind of like a cool little item to show your dedication to the band. Hopefully after the next KoRn album a catch up version of this book will be written.

Format: Paperback
The book KoRn Life in the Pit by Leah Furman is a good book for anyone that is courious about the band. It's a good bio for the band , but not for the guys in the band.It does tell a little bit about the boring up brining in Bakersfeild for the guy. Mostly the frontman Jon Davis's home front. The book does a good job of details of the very beging of the bands that fromed KoRn like SexArt and Creep and up the band second album Life is Peachy. When the book reaches the time of the third album Follow the Leader. The book is a little old and only goes up to the first recordings of the guys fourth album also know as Issues.
