KORN SINGER'S WALL OF FAME
Jonathan Davis Collects McFarlane Toys
August 4, 2000
So, you thought you were the only one on your block that collected those dark, disturbing McFarlane toys. Well rest assured, toy geek, you're not alone. Several celebrities, including Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit, professional baseball player Jason Giambi, Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett and hair-metal dude Sebastian Bach are all toy collectors and serious McFarlane fans.
But a major player in the worlds of metal and McFarlane toys is Korn frontman Jonathan Davis. Jonathan has several walls of his home devoted to displaying his hobby and was cool enough to send some photos in to Spawn.com.
Korn's connection with Todd McFarlane goes back several years. Jonathan was a fan of Todd's work initially. Then Korn was offered a spot on the Spawn movie soundtrack. Finally, they approached Todd about doing cover art for their Follow the Leader album and their award-winning music video for Freak on a Leash. The close relationship continues to this day, and Korn and McFarlane will almost certainly work together again in the future. Figures perhaps? Stay tuned.
