Korn's Brian "Head" Welch

Korn Guitarist Brian “Head” Welch: “I Followed God Back To Korn”


Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch has shared a new video feature for I Am Second¬†which finds him further discussing his faith and how he feels it led him back to Korn. Welch infamously left the band back in 2005 amid battles with drug addiction and more, emerging as a fiercely born again Christian. After pursuing various other projects, he went on to rejoin Korn in 2012 and has remained a member since. Speaking in the below feature, he stated:

“I know the music’s crazy but mainly the lyrics are about pain and they come from a real and raw place. People need hope. There’s addictions like crazy in that world. There’s depression; there’s been a lot of suicide stories happening. What better place to be having the meaning of life that I carry. I know the answer for the meaning of life, so…”

“It’s not the most popular thing to do at a rock concert, is talk about Christ. Now I’m doing it because it’s the most realest thing that’s happened to me in my life. There’s always a separation that Christians try to do. It’s like when a babies born, it needs to be in a sterile environment where everything’s pure around about the baby for a period of time before it can go start touching things… It’s kind of the same thing spiritually, where you’ve got to go away in a pure environment and get to know this new life; get strengthened and prepared and that’s what happened.

So, we need to figure out what’s right for our lives for this time, you know? I did that, I followed God right back into Korn and he’s there and I’m not separated from them or the fans any longer. It says in the bible he’s gonna restore all things. God is so good that he’s restored me in that way.”

Welch‘s previously strained relationship with his daughter and his own struggles with fatherhood through the time period mentioned above serves as the focus of a new documentary titled ‘Loud Krazy Love‘. That film will air on Showtime this Friday, December 14th.
