Details & Extras
Dita was interviewed for Kerrang! magazine in mid 2002. The article entitled ‘Hell’s Angel’ featured photography by James and James.
Quite a good interview. I’m aware of Dita’s appearance in Green Day’s Redundant video, but I didn’t know about the Korn association. The online talk show Dita referred to was called KornTV, After School Specials… There are links to reruns on the KornTV website, but I can’t get them to load: After School Special #3- 3/19/98.
“Follow The Leader, that was a lot of fun. I just remember having a good time. We recorded it in North Hollywood. We always had a lot of friends around. I remember a lot of friends coming by the studio. I remember at one point on Thursdays we had this thing we did called ‘Korn TV. We sort of started our own Korn channel and we had different guests in and stuff. I remember Dita Von Teese was there. You know, this is like 12, 13 years ago. It was just a bizarre time. I remember a lot of cocaine. First it was the alcohol with ‘Life Is Peachy’ and now we were moving into cocaine.”
