From the Back Cover:

What have you got when you Got the Life?

From Korn's legendary bassist comes a no-holds-barred look at the extreme highs and drug-and-booze-fueled lows of the biggest heavy metal band of our era

Music was in his bones. From the time he was an infant, Fieldy watched his dad's band perform, and soon enough he found his own calling: the bass. After high school, with a guitar and little else, he left his small California town for the music scene in L.A. Before long, Fieldy, Brian "Head" Welch, James "Munky" Shaffer, drummer David Silveria, and Jonathan Davis would gel together and form a band with a completely new sound—Korn.

What happened next was something Fieldy had always dreamed of but was totally unprepared for: Korn exploded, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and fronting the nu metal phenomenon. Fieldy was thrust into the fast-paced, hard-rocking spotlight. Korn began to tour incessantly, creating intense live shows fueled by wild offstage antics. Fieldy became a rock star, and he acted like one, notorious not only for his one-of-a-kind bass lines, but also for his hard-partying, womanizing, bad-boy ways. The more drugs he took, the more booze he drank, the worse he became: He was unfaithful, abusive, mean, and sometimes violent.

By all appearances, Fieldy had the life. But he was on the dark path of excess, alienating friends, families, and loved ones, nearly destroying himself and the band. It took an unexpected tragedy to straighten him out: the death of his father, a born-again Christian, to a mysterious illness. Following his father's dying wish, Fieldy found God. Filled with the spirit of his new faith, Fieldy quit drugs and drinking cold turkey, and found the best part of himself.

With never-before-seen photos, and never-before-heard stories, Got the Life is raw, candid, and inspiring—the ultimate story of rock and redemption.

About the Author:

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Got the Life: My Journey of Addiction, Faith, Recovery, and "Korn", Reggie "Fieldy" Arvizu, Fieldy had one of the worst reputations in metal as a hard-partying, womanizing bad boy as the bassist and founding member of metal megaband Korn. The band pioneered the nu-metal phenomenon and enjoyed immense successes, selling more than 16.5 million albums. But drugs and alcohol nearly destroyed them. Korn reemerged sober and rededicated to their music. Taking readers backstage and on tour with the hard-partying Korn, Fieldy tells the inside story of life in the band and how his rock star lifestyle resulted in alienated friends and family, drug addictions, and violent outburts. Fieldy talks candidly about his drug abuse and the long, hard road back to sobriety and the love of his family.In "Got the Life", Fieldy offers the story of his own redemption and spritiual revelation after his father - a fellow musician and born-again Christian - dies from a mysterious illness. Filled with a new faith in Christ, Fieldy quit drinking and drugs cold turkey. In the process, he learned that music and heart - not sex and drugs - make great rock 'n roll.
