For Fieldy and Head

My son is struggling. His heart for our Lord is strong and his demons prevent peace. I want to bring him tomorrow (Irvine, Sunday the 24th) as a surprise but he doesn't want to go now because of the 'evil' and ignorant coaching he's received, from others. I've yet to discuss with him how you found Christ because I want him to discover this on his own as I haven't been a model father in some key needs that a son needs. I have changed, however, repentance isn't easy for me. If you are moved to, please, meet us, just to touch his heart so this may be a life changing experience for him. What a wonderful kid he is with such good potential and his whole life in front of him but, like we all have, loses his self to drugs & bad skirts and remorse. I always tell him we can't soar with eagles if we're pecking with turkeys. I have 2 seats, Orchestra 2, A207 & A208. I pray he comes to witness how awesome peace and spirit does exists. Please consider him.

Thank you for reading this, if it gets to you on time.
Robbie Kuchta is his name.

Best wishes to you and your family.

Hello my name is Chris Churchill and my brother in law is the biggest fan of korn he was supposed to come to what would be his 12 concert but is now in ICU for seizures and it is not looking good. It was his 28th birthday and his cake was korn theme, I was wondering if in anyway a "get well soon danny" picture with the band I fully understand you are busy and I ask cause when he came out of his first attack he said I have to go see korn. Thank you for reading this, this is the only thing I feel that will maybe help him get better or make him smile if god forbid he goes..

Jonathan...I literally stopped having sex to record " KORN - Issues Live at the Apollo November 15, 1999 when is came out over the radio. Still amazing to this day.
You have a incredible voice. Could you put out a heavy as fuck album either with Korn(They have the talent) or as a side project. Something that sounds NOTHING like Korn. Something that is Metal as fuck but with clean JD vocals.

I know this will never reach you, but from the bottom of my heart, sincerely I thank you. You guys have done more for me than you could ever know. I hope you bring the strength to yourselves that you have brought to me. Andy.

I hope you're back to normal and feeling better soon, you're really kicking ass right now to be still performing and giving it everything you got. Thank you so much for everything you do, when I was younger I would have been lost without Korn. It pushed me to heavier music, helped me through school, and inspired me to play music.
Thank you bro! Get better soon!!
