9780061662508: Got the Life: My Journey of Addiction, Faith, Recovery, and Korn

From Reggie “Fieldy” Arvizu, legendary bassist of nu-metal pioneers KORN, comes Got the Life: a no-holds-barred look at his extreme highs, drug- and-booze-fueled lows, and, finally, redemption through a conversion to Christianity. Got the Life is simultaneously an insider’s look at rock n’ roll superstardom—the good, the bad, and everything in between—and a survivor’s story of a life brought back from the precipice by a new found belief in religious salvation.

From the Back Cover:

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.

What have you got when you got the life?

From the time he was an infant, music was in Fieldy's bones. Leaving his small California town after high school with a guitar and little else, he joined Brian "Head" Welch, James "Munky" Shaffer, drummer David Silveria, and Jonathan Davis in L.A. and together they formed a band with a completely new sound. When Korn exploded, skyrocketing to the top and fronting the nu-metal phenomenon, Fieldy became a rock star and acted like one—as notorious for his hard-partying, womanizing, drug-abusing, bad-boy behavior as he was for his one-of-a-kind bass lines. He was unfaithful, abusive, mean, sometimes violent. Fieldy had the life. But it took the death of his father, a born-again Christian, from a mysterious illness to save the son from total destruction. Fieldy found God . . . and 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:

Reggie "Fieldy" Arvizu is the bassist for the massively popular nu-metal band Korn, which has sold more than 25 million records worldwide. He is now happily married to his wife, Dena, and has three children.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. By all appearances, Fieldy had the life: the band he played bass in, Korn, had exploded, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and fronting the nu metal phenomenon. Thrust into the fast-paced, hard-rocking spotlight, 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, womanising, 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. Fieldy 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. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780061662508
