Shane Gibson (February 21, 1979 – April 15, 2014) was an American musician best known for being the touring guitarist for the American metal group Korn, after the departure of Brian "Head" Welch in February 2005. He also played the lead guitar for the solo tour of Jonathan Davis from Korn.
Gibson spent most of his teenage years in Florida and graduated in 2002 from the Berklee College of Music where he attended on a scholarship basis. Moving then to Los Angeles, California, where he first worked as a roadie for Kiss and later on TV spots and music for movies, he was introduced to Jonathan Davis by Richard Gibbs, and then hired to play some dates with Korn. Following the absence of Munky (aka James Shaffer) in January 2008, Gibson became the lead guitar player for Korn.
Jonathan Davis stated that Shane "reminds him of Head" in that "he's kind of introverted and whenever he's in the room things just seem to fall around him." However, with Munky's return to Korn on February 23, 2008, Gibson was back to playing the rhythm guitar parts only.
Gibson died on April 15, 2014, in Birmingham, Alabama, of complications from a blood clotting disorder. The last album he played guitar in is Broken Peices by his band stOrk, which is set to be released on April 29, 2014.
