Active: 1993-present
Instruments: bass, backing vocals

Arvizu played in a number of different bands with high school friends Brian Welch, James Shaffer, Ty, and David Silveria including L.A.P.D., however due to vocalist Richard Morrill's drug addiction the band fell apart in the early nineties, and the remaining members recruited Davis as their new lead vocalist. In 2012, Mudvayne bassist Ryan Martinie filled in for Fieldy at several Korn dates as Fieldy spent time with his wife who had given birth to their third child.
James "Munky" Shaffer
Active: 1993-present
Instruments: guitar, backing vocals, mandolin, lap steel
Release contributions: all Korn releases
Shaffer was one of four members of the band who previously played with L.A.P.D.. Since Brian Welch's departure from the band in 2005 Shaffer is the only official guitarist of the band while all other guitarists that have played with the band have been members of the back-up band. In 2008 Shaffer left the band temporarily to spend time with his ill father.
Ray Luzier
Active: 2007-present
Instrument: drums, percussion
Release contributions: "Kidnap the Sandy Claws" (2008), Korn III: Remember Who You Are (2010), The Path of Totality (2011).
Luzier reportedly flew to Seattle to audition for Korn with Munky and Fieldy. When told to learn only five of their songs, Luzier learned thirty. Not only did he perfect their studio versions of each song, but the live as well. After an audition such as this, the band immediately invited Ray to join the band. Luzier played his first show with Korn on January 13, 2008 in Dublin, Ireland.

Famous quotes containing the word current:

    We all participate in weaving the social fabric; we should therefore all participate in patching the fabric when it develops holes—mismatches between old expectations and current realities.
    Anne C. Weisberg (20th century)

    Beneath the azure current floweth;
    Above, the golden sunlight glows.
    Rebellious, the storm it wooeth,
    As if the storms could give repose.
    Mikhail Lermontov (1814–1841)

    It is a quite remarkable fact that the great religions of the most civilized peoples are more deeply fraught with sadness than the simpler beliefs of earlier societies. This certainly does not mean that the current of pessimism is eventually to submerge the other, but it proves that it does not lose ground and that it does not seem destined to disappear.
    Emile Durkheim (1858–1917)
