    Default Ray Luzier Interview,with Dave and VH tidbits

    Let me say right off the bat,unfortunately for us,
    Ray didnt drop any NEW VH news in this interview,
    maybe next time
     
    Most of you here know that Ray was Daves drummer for
    like 8 years or so,and in the past few years,has become
    Korns Permanent drummer.
    In this interview,he mentions Dave and VH,i copied
    those parts here.

    For the FULL interview,Clicky,Clicky below.

    http://www.live-metal.net/interviews...mayhem2010.htm
     
    Jeff:
    Have you guys ever discussed situations of reuniting with old members? Let’s say, one day David did want to come back, or Head.

    It’s weird ‘cause my career, I got replaced by Alex Van Halen in a little band called Van Halen. Even with my eight years with David Lee Roth, I got let go, quote, four times because they were trying to write. And then the brothers would get in a fight with Dave, and they’d call me back—"We’re on tour." Alright. And I would get severance checks in the mail, and I’m like, "Oh no, I’m fired." He’s like, "No, you’re not fired. Eddie and Al are back into the fold." I’m like, "Shit." And even with Robert and Dean DeLeo—I was in a band called Army of Anyone and I’m a huge STP fan. I had the fortunate experience of filling in for (Stone Temple Pilots drummer) Eric (Kretz) on a couple shows. Even with that entity, I knew that Army of Anyone was a side project to them and STP would eventually get back together. And they did. So with this band, the only thing that I’ve got going good for me is that I heard that David sold all his drums; he doesn’t play drums anymore. That’s great for me. [laughs] But on the Head side of it, they are in communication with him. Time will tell if it’s the right time. I think it’s all timing. Right now, there’s still a lot of stuff going on with it. Ultimately, that would be awesome for me someday to have the four up there and me.
     
    Jeff: Speaking of personalities, do you have any great David Lee Roth stories, Van Halen stories?
    [laughter] I have books up here.

    Greg: When are you gonna write your book?

    You know what? It’s all here, and I actually have a friend that’s a wicked fast typist. I’ll just lay on her couch and I’ll go, "Oh my god, this one time …" So it’s getting documented and probably over half is the Roth years because no one is like Dave. From a singer to just the way he lives, he’s awesome. I love him to death. He’s a bipolar maniac, but I freakin’ love him to death. I thought I knew a lot about the music business until I joined the David Lee Roth band because he just showed me, from showbiz to certain etiquettes to—It’s just amazing. You have to be a very tolerable person to put up with that.

    I remember sitting at his house one day and he’s like, [miming smoking a cigarette] "Well, kid, you’re the only one left." And I’m like, "What do you mean?" And I’ve gotta do the cigarette when I do it. He’s like, "Well, I’ve been through accountants, lawyers, guitar players, bass techs. You’re the only one left." [laughter] It’s true ‘cause I actually hired the band and I found him the crew, so man, my mama taught me some good patience. No one fronts a band like that. He’s just that thing. I’ve been fortunate enough—I mean, come on, Jonathan Davis is the guy in rock and metal, and Dave changed a whole era through the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s. And I got to be onstage with Richard Patrick and Scott Weiland, just a lot of great singers and musicians. So I can’t complain. You’ll get that book someday, though. Definitely.
     
    Looking forward to reading his take on the Diamond one.
     
    By the way,i came accross this interview because i am a Korn fan,
    and i know how a lot of you feel about them hehehe

    So if you want to trash Rays current band,thats cool,there
    one of those bands you either like or dislike,and in some cases,
    REALLY dislike,really no in between,thats why music so much fun,
    so many flavors out there to choose from
    Love without affection,is hate without the pain.

    Funny he says Dave was fighting with the bros while the official propaganda version was "everything was great then the lawyers got in the way..."

    Dave and the brothers seem to have the love-hate relationship. You just hope the love side wins out more than the hate side.

    I think he does a great job as KORN's drummer. It's about time they found a permanent replacement.

    Ray's a super cool guy. He stuck around after a Dave show in Biloxi, MS in 2003 for some pics and signed a drumstick for my son. I wish him all success with Korn.

    I met Ray in Houston (probably around 2003) and he is a nice guy. Ray and the other band members were having dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe before the show. As expected, Dave was nowhere to be found.

    Maybe someone up at VHND.COM
    Can get a hold of Ray for an interview,and ask him about his
    days with Dave,as well as his take on what was ACTUALLY
    going on around the time Dave and the bros tried to make
    it work,before things eventually fell apart???
     
    If anything,we MIGHT get some cool stories about Dave
    we have never heard before.
     
    The dude seems very accessible when it comes to interviews,
    i know he has done quite a few since Korn's new cd dropped
    on the masses.
     
    Not only that,hes like the Michael Anthony of Korn,
    very open and fan friendly.
    If the right person asked him the right questions,i bet he
    would have NO prob sharing what he knew about that time
    period,maybe feel in a few plot holes for us.
     
    Or maybe he would pull a MelodicRock on us,and HINT
    that he new more,but alas,aint telling

    Like that dude who's name starts with A and ends W,
    who posts here on occassion hehehe

    hehehe
    I was at a Korn show over the summer and Johnathan Davis came out into the parking lot where everyone was tailgating and took pics with people. He was riding a segway, It was kind of funny from a distance seeing this guy who looked 7 feet tall on this thing sort of gliding towards you. It wasn't until he came around a few cars that you could see the segway. Never saw a member of VH come out to the parking lot to meet the fans.

    A sad segue regarding Segway ...

    lol thats a funny image,seeing JD riding one,cuz he is a big dude.
    Oh speaking of....Here be a pic of JD with one.



    But on another note,sad thing to happen that family,
    to have there father fall 30 feet to his death.
     
    If i ride one of those things,for sure im gonna make sure
    i know what the hell im doing before hand,as well as stay
    FAR and AWAY from any locations that have any
    sudden 30 foot drops

    This guy might have some great stories, but it's hard to tell from how he rambles on.

    Awww,come on now.

    We are after all VH fans,we have years of experience,
    deciphering Daves ramblings,and in some cases,
    Daves INCOHERENT ramblings over the years.

    Im thinking we shouldnt have much of a problem
    making out what Ray had to say hehehe
