Shane Gibson

Family, friends, and former bandmates have established a scholarship fund in memory of Korn’s touring guitar player Shane Gibson ’03.

A native of Houma, Louisiana (raised in Fort Walton Beach, Florida), Gibson graduated as a music therapy major and joined Korn as a touring guitar player, accompanying the seminal nu metal band on national and international tours. Gibson was also a member of [Korn lead singer] Jonathan Davis's solo project.

In a statement on Korn’s website, band cofounder James "Munky" Shaffer says that Gibson “was an amazing guitar player and an amazing person,” and that he is “very fortunate to have known him.”
