Finishing 11 songs for his second solo album 'Bassically', Reginald 'Fieldy' Arvizu reveals that he plays 'a jazz fusion funk type of thing'.
Korn's bassist Reginald Arvizu aka Fieldy is planning to shock fans with his second solo album - the heavy metal rocker has abandoned the genre in favor of jazz fusion. The "Freak on a Leash" rocker is putting the finishing touches on "Bassically", a follow-up to his 2002 rap record "Rock'n Roll Gangster".
He tells AOL's Noisecreep, "Right now, I have 11 songs finished. I might do two more, but it's pretty much done." But Fieldy has warned fans to expect something different. He adds, "I'd say it's like a jazz fusion funk type of thing. Real new age, too. Different kinds of music."
"I've always wanted to do it. When I was younger, learning bass, I listened to a lot of bass albums, Stanley Clarke, I grew up listening to that type of stuff. I don't want people to be confused and buy it and not like it. It's not heavy I don't want people to get it and think, 'Man, I can't believe I bought this crap'. It's not meant to be heavy. If you like heavy and are not open-minded, you will not like this."
