“A new trailer for “Loud Krazy Love”, an unconventional new documentary chronicling the chaotic and unexpectedly uplifting life story of Brian “Head” Welch, best known as guitarist and co-founder of Korn, can be seen below (courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter).The 86-minute film directed by first-time feature filmmakers Trey Hill and Scott Mayo will make its Texas premiere at the Dallas International Film Festival May 3-10 and its Southeast premiere during the Nashville Film Festival May 10-19, with multiple screenings occurring at each festival. Featuring exclusive access on tour and at home, as well as in-depth interviews with Brian, his family and his Korn bandmates, “Loud Krazy Love” subverts the standard sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll narrative to explore his identity as a father and the complicated relationship he shares with his daughter Jennea.”The intimate details of Brian and Jennea‘s life during the years he was absent from Korn are turbulent,” said Mayo. “‘Loud Krazy Love’ is really a backstage pass to heartache and triumph. You don’t have to be a Korn fan to empathize with Brian‘s decision to sacrifice all his success in an attempt to be a good father.
Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch has paid tribute to Chuck Mosley, saying that the ex-Faith No More singer and his former bandmates “were a huge part” of Korn‘s “everyday lives” in the early 1990s.
Mosley died last week at the age of 57. He sang on Faith No More‘s first two albums, 1985’s “We Care A Lot” and 1987’s “Introduce Yourself”. He was fired from the band and replaced by Mike Patton, who remains the group’s singer to this day.
In an Instagram post yesterday (Monday, November 13), Welch wrote: “I remember living in a tiny apartment in Burbank, California, living with most of the guys who would later form Korn. They were in their funk rock band called L.A.P.D. I was just hanging out drinking beer trying to figure out life. They were so into the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Faith No More, and I wanted nothing to do with those bands.
Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch joined Babymetal on stage — his face painted in the same white-and-black makeup as the Japanese act’s backing band — on June 25 at the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa, Idaho.

Musician and New York Times best-selling author Brian “Head” Welch made headlines in 2005 when he abandoned heavy metal super-group Korn after a very personal spiritual encounter he had at his home in California. “With My Eyes Wide Open: Miracles And Mistakes On My Way Back To Korn” — due out May 17 from Nelson Books — is the guitarist’s account of the brutal, eye-opening eight years he spent as a single dad after leaving Korn, leading up to his controversial decision to rejoin the band in 2013 and reconcile with the tribe of people he once considered family in the metal music scene. Written with Carol Traver, the book is 240 pages in length, featuring 16 full-color photos from Welch‘s personal archive.
“Save Me From Myself”, Welch‘s very public and disruptive conversion not only inspired him to leave a life of unbelievable excess with the band he helped found, but also gave him the strength he needed to overcome addictions to cocaine, alcohol, pills, as well as the drug that would almost completely destroy his life: meth amphetamines. Nevertheless, his instinct for bad decisions lingered, and what followed was a near decade-long trial by fire-from the perils of fathering a teen lost in depression and self-mutilation to the harsh realities of playing solo and surviving financial ruin-this intensely inspiring redemption saga is unlike any other.
