Reginald Arvizu Hard rock Artist

Reginald arvizu

Reginald Quincy "Fieldy" Arvizu (born November 2, 1969 in Los Angeles County, California) is the bassist for the nu metal band Korn, and guitarist for the hard rock band StillWell. Prior to Arvizu's time in Korn, he and Brian Welch, who would later become one of Korn's two guitarists (alongside James Shaffer), had played together in a number of bands, having become friends while still at school. Upon their graduation from high school, Arvizu, Welch, Shaffer, and drummer David Silveria relocated from Bakersfield to Los Angeles and Arvizu, Shaffer, and Silveria formed L.A.P.D (the name first stood for "Love and Peace, Dude", but this abbreviation was later changed to "Laughing As People Die"). Although L.A.P.D. did succeed in signing a record deal, their success was limited until the band hired singer Jonathan Davis and changed their name to Korn. The name "Fieldy" is said to have come about as an inside joke. Originally, his band mates called him "Gopher", due to his large cheeks. Gopher quickly became "Gar", Gar became "Garfield" (based on the comic strip character of the same name), and eventually "Gar" was dropped and a "y" was added to "Field", which became Fieldy.

1989 - 1993

L.A.P.D. was an American Alternative metal band, formed in 1989, in Bakersfield, California. From 1989 to 1991, the member line-up was James Shaffer, Reginald Arvizu, David Silveria, Richard Morrill. The group has released one studio album, one extended play, and one compilation album. The band was originally formed by Shaffer, Arvizu, and Morrill. Capra approached the band introducing them to bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Faith No More. Still in need for a drummer, the band placed an advertisement in a local newspaper which was answered by Silveria. Shortly after this, the band recorded a demo album which was meant to be sent out to record companies. Realizing they would have to continue the band in a more populated area in order for them to expand, all of the members but Shaffer left Bakersfield and resided in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. In late 1989, the band hired a man named Arthur as their manager, resulting in them getting signed to Triple X Records. The band recorded and released their first extended play in 1989, but it suffered from poor distribution. In 1991, they released Who's Laughing Now, their first full-length studio album.

3.Fieldy's Dreams Hip hop music

Fieldy's Dreams is the rap project by Korn's bass guitarist, Fieldy. His first album, the gangsta rap album Rock'n Roll Gangster, was released on 22 January 2002. Most of the lyrics and music were by Fieldy himself, with Polar Bear helping out with the rest. Fieldy renamed his project "Fieldy's Nightmare" and was due to release a 2008 album, Sobriety, but recording was put on hold to focus on work with Korn. Fieldy says that this new album will not be gangster rap but a bass instrumental album with a funk/jazz fusion. The Fieldy's Dreams song, "Baby Hugh Hef," was named the #10 "50 Worst Songs of the '00s" in a 2009 Village Voice article.
