Korn Front Man Jonathon Davis is down for the count with a rare blood disease called ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura). While I am not a fan of Korn, I really don't like hearing of someone being that ill.
ITP stands for idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. "Idiopathic" means that the cause is unknown. "Thrombocytopenic" means the blood doesn't have enough platelets. "Purpura" means a person has excessive bruising. You may also hear ITP called "immune thrombocytopenic purpura."
The following singers stepped in at the Donnington Festival for Jonathon: Corey from SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR, Dez from DEVILDRIVER, Jesse from 10 YEARS, Benji from SKINDRED, Shadows from AVENGED SEVENFOLD, and Matt from TRIVIUM.
Jonathon expects to be back to normal shortly. For more information, click here
