Rolling Stone India recently interviewed JD about Korn's upcoming tour in India.
"Yes, we're playing a lot of the old-school songs. It's a place we've never been, we've always wanted to go. I love India. It's awesome. I'm into Sikh religion really hardcore, like, a lot and I have a lot of Indian friends. I can't wait to go there. We knew we had fans there, we had a lot of people come to see us and we've been playing all over the world and for tons and thousands of people. We've been to a lot of places but it's really more important and exciting for me to play somewhere that I've never played before. We've been around about 18 years and I've never been toIndia. It's one place that I've always wanted to go. I want to see the Golden Temple. I've got all these wish-list things I want to do there.

Indian music is so fucking hard because of all the quarter tones and the tabla patterns and the ragas that they play. These ragas are all 30 minutes long and not one measure is the same. That shit just blows my mind! I love Indian violin and the singing – I've used some of the Indian percussive singing. I'm learning how to play the violin."
