Jonathan Houseman Davis is the Chanteur group of Néo Métal American, KoRn.
BiographyIt was born the January 18th 1971 in Bakersfield (California) where his/her father, of Irish origin , held a store of music. Small Jonathan was a rather weak child who suffered easily from Asthme.
Its childhood in addition was very tormented. Indeed, it will be made violate very young person and when it speaks about it with his parents they do not believe it, because they thought that " this kind of thing could not arrive at their fils". The things are hardly arranged when his/her parents divorce and that his/her father remarie with a wretched woman who hated Jonathan and went even until beating it with blows of cane. In the song entitled " Kill You" album " Life Is Peachy" , Jonathan speaks about this woman, it says that the night it dreamed that it killed it.
As regards his/her mother the things are quite as horrible since his/her new companion is a brutal man and in addition Catholique Intégriste which often strikes Jonathan him also and which will go even until burning its cassettes of rock'n'roll by describing them as " Henchman of Satan" , (the named song " Falling Away From Me" album " Issues" refers to this man).
When the young boy enters to the college, it is rather timid and holds, badly in its skin. He liked much art, the romantic songs and got dressed sometimes almost as a girl because its idol was Alice Cooper and that he was fan of New Wave (he borrowed also the Mascara of his sister to make up itself). All that did not like obviously rough of the college which rejected it and made him undergo physical brimades and morals, treating it of queer (fag, faget) or of sidaïque. Several songs of KoRn at that time refer and to these rejections such as for example " Faget" first album or " Thoughtless" of Untouchables, in addition the tattooing of Jon on its shoulder, HIV, is the English name of the virus of the AIDS, reference thus to the old insults. According to J.D, this tattooing will prevent it from making several " conneries" that he would have regretted thereafter.
To the college, Jonathan launches out in studies of Funeral Science and in parallel will learn how to play several instruments, in particular of the Cornemuse. It makes even party of the orchestra of the college where it plays of the bagpipe in traditional behavior (kilt), of the battery and of the Electric guitar.
Having obtained its diplomas, he becomes assistant doctor-legist with the mortuary. At the beginning, it liked this experiment because, according to its dires, it enabled him to appease the fatal impulses which he had accumulated. But very quickly the horrors which he will see by cutting out of the corpses will mark it with life. Several songs of KoRn also refer there. " Pretty" album " Follow The Leader" where he tells that he owed charcuter the body of an eleven month old young girl which had been made violate by his/her father, who had died about it and whom that had disgusted it and marked with life. In the same way in the album " Issues" , the song entitled " Trash" report another of these horrible meetings to the mortuary, when one brought to him the body of a ten year old girl who was made beat by her parents and who had died under the blows. Jonathan even declared during an interview that it already had found one godemiché wedged in a corpse.
In parallel of its work to the mortuary, Jon did not give up the music and very quickly integrated an rock group, " Sex Art" , with which he will sing until in 1992. It is with a festival of rock'n'roll that it met the four survivors of ex-group LAPD who sought a new singer. Those noticed it and remained scotchés in front of its service with Sex Article They proposed to him to join them, after some hesitations, it even went to consult conspicuous, Jonathan accepted and the name of the group was changed into KoRn.
