Description

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.

Back cover copy

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.
