A very long time ago, Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis used to struggle with a meth addiction. In a video that has been resurfacing via YouTube, Davis actually talked about his past meth addiction with Jackass star Steve-O; this was during a conversation on Steve-O’s podcast, Steve-O’s Wild Ride!.

Per the brief video clip you will find below, Jonathan talks about what it was like to smoke meth (and goes into some graphic detail). At the time of this video, Davis shared that he was coming up on 22 years of being sober. He says that he used to have a real bad meth problem. He goes on to share that he used to do “hot rails”; someone then interjects and asks if that is when someone lights up the glass and snorts it. Davis replies and says, “That’s just pre-glass; it was hot because it was like peanut butter, nasty, fucking jet fuel crank.”

He says that he dropped meth just as “glass” came around. In reflecting on his days using meth, Jonathan Davis says, “That drug right there, just when you did it – the initial fucking burn and all that shit, and that nasty shit that would leak out your body, that’s what makes me sick – but I ain’t going to lie, I loved it. You feel like fucking Superman.”

Jonathan Davis goes on to talk about his time of heavy partying. You can check out the full clip via the link below. Korn are currently on the road with that of Evanescence as part of North American tour. Below the video clip, you can find their remaining tour dates and locations.
