kornwithwelch2013newKorn bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu and guitarist Brian “Head” Welch were interviewed by the St. Louis Christian radio station The Rock about the good and bad things about being in and out of the “Christian bubble.” The video can be viewed below.

Fieldy‘s 2009 memoir, “Got The Life: My Journey Of Addiction, Faith, Recovery And Korn”, details his struggles with drug and alcohol addiction during Korn’s early years and how he became a born-again Christian to help get his life together and get sober.

Welch abruptly quit Korn in early 2005 and announced that he had been saved by Jesus Christ. His announcement in front of 10,000 people in Bakersfield, California set off a media frenzy, as people from around the world sought to understand what led this rock star into the “light.”

Korn played its first full concert since 2005 with Welch in the lineup on May 15 in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania, where the group kicked off a string of spring North American dates. Welch joined the group onstage for one song last year at the Carolina Rebellion festival, sparking rumors that more shows together and even a full reunion were in the pipeline. The band has also just finished recording its first studio set with Welch since 2003’s “Take A Look In The Mirror”.
