    Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu is the bassist for the '90s nu metal band Korn, who will be performing Thursday night at 4th and B., but prior to the show, Fieldy will be stopping by the Tribal Store in downtown San Diego for an exclusive book signing. 

    Released in March, Got the Life: My Journey of Addiction, Faith, Recovery and Korn details the story of how Arvizu found God, fought his addictions -- drugs, alcohol, overeating and chasing women -- and maintained working relationships with his band (which included writing letters of apology).

    Married with three children, Fieldy recently told the Huffington Post that "Christ was my rehab; it's not cool to say that. ... For me, that's my rehab. That's what happened with me, and it's an amazing and powerful thing." Not to be confused with former bandmate Brian "Head" Welch, who left the band after a religious transformation, the Korn bassist was quick to point out, "I didn't go and quit anything. I remained who I am, so I don't know if anybody wants to criticize. I'm still me. I made some changes. I didn't go around telling everybody I was ready to make changes, I just remained me."  

    Korn's newest album, Korn III: Remember Who You Are, will be available July 13 on Roadrunner Records and features the single "Oildale (Leave Me Alone)". Additionally, Korn recently made news with the announcement that they would boycott British Petroleum from their summer tour.

    Fieldy's exclusive book signing will be at the Tribal Store in downtown San Diego on Thursday, June 10, at 4 p.m.

    Korn's Ballroom Blitz will be at 4th & B on Thursday, June 10, at 8 p.m.
