"My sound is more like a drummer. I'm a percussion-sounding bass player. A lot of times people think that what they're hearing is drums and it's actually in the bass. For instance, when Les Claypool (of Primus) heard some of the new stuff, like “B.B.K.,” he said, “That's a pretty cool double kick!” And it wasn't, it was my bass. On the business side of KORN, I do all the T-shirt designs for KORN, all the merchandise, like the hats and stickers. All the merchandise you see. That's all me. I think everybody could do it. I think everybody's just lazy. So I end up being the one that does it all. I come up with a bunch of designs, show them to the band. They either approve or disapprove."

The only thing that inspires me is hip-hop--all west-coast hip-hop. Not that I favor west-coast or east-cost, but that’s just what seems to inspire me. Just the beats and the style.

Fieldy is known for his alcohol related antics. For instance, on a photo shoot, a bucket had to be found in case he threw up.

Q: What do you like about touring clubs?
A: The free beer.
 

At the end of May, 1998, Fieldy married his girlfriend, Shela. They have two daughters, Sarina Rae, born on September 30th, 1997, recently had another baby girl.

When he was asked about his nickname, he said: "When I was younger, I had these f**king chipmunk cheeks, right... so they called me 'Gopher', and then it became 'Garf'. Then they started callin' me 'Garfield'. Then it became 'Fieldy'." On the album, his name is Fieldy Snuts. (get it, feel deez nuts)

When asked whether the fans ever become annoying, asking for autographs etc, Fieldy says "think of your favorite band when you were a kid, and they were all like..get away from me.. you'd be crushed".

Fieldy's favorite song is Freak on a Leash. When asked what 5 albums he'd like to be stranded on an island with he says "The new KORN record, of course. Chris Rock's live comedy album. The biggest old school hip-hop compilation you could get. So I could have a variety of a bunch of sh*t. Psycho Realm. And Erykah Badu Live."

Fieldy is currently writing and producing his own hip-hop album called "Fieldy's Dreams", on which he will play all the instruments on.
