Korn Guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer Diagnosed with COVID-19
Korn have been persisting with their tour despite frontman Jonathan Davis dealing with COVID-19 after-effects. Now, guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer has tested positive for coronavirus as well — but the band are still persisting with their tour.

In an announcement on social media, the band wrote that Munky is "doing ok" but will not be participating in some of the group's upcoming shows.

Regardless, all of the shows are going ahead, and the band write that they are "anticipating a speedy recovery."
Korn are currently touring the U.S. with Staind, including a show tonight in West Valley City. See the schedule here.

At a recent show, vocalist Davis told the crowd, "I'm fucking feeling very weak, but I fucking refuse to fucking cancel!" He was diagnosed with COVID-19 last month.
