Brian Head Welch 2013Musician 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.

Brian Head WelchMatt Pinfield of Fanpass conducted an interview with Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch at this year’s Welcome To Rockville festival, which was held April 26-27 at Metro Park in Jacksonville, Florida. You can now watch the chat below.

Welch, a former drug addict and reformed Christian, spoke about what it’s like touring with Korn since rejoining the band in early 2013, eight years after first leaving the band. “I like to get high on something, and when I asked the Lord to come and make his home inside of me, the spiritual high, it’s so real,” Welch said. “And I hate religion — I don’t talk about religion at all — but the relationship through Christ is what I found. And I’m totally satisfied. Now I can enjoy raising my kid, I can enjoy jamming with music in Korn, I can enjoy anything I do. It’s the best high ever.”

Welch also discussed how his attitude has changed since first he fell victim to the pitfalls and excesses of rock stardom, saying: “When you get that big, everyone’s, like, crawling after you and everything, and you start to believe, even if you don’t say it, you start to believe that it’s about you. And what I’ve come to realize is it’s all about them, it’s all about the fans, it’s all about them and the music. You’re here to give to them, not to be some king rock star. It’s all about them.” Continue reading »

Brian Head WelchAccording to The Pulse Of RadioKorn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch is getting ready to write his fourth book. Welch, who has three previous tomes to his credit, told The Pulse Of Radio that his new one will focus on the time he spent away from Korn between 2005 and 2013. “I call ’em like ‘the wilderness years,’ when I was gone in a way, raising my daughter and doing all that stuff for all those years,” he said. “And then, you know, getting together with the Korn guys again and — you know like my first book, like I told about my whole childhood and all the details and everything? I’m gonna do the same with this during like the mysterious ‘wilderness years,’ I like to call ’em.”

Welch‘s previous books include 2008’s “Save Me From Myself: How I Found God, Quit Korn, Kicked Drugs, And Lived To Tell My Story”, a young adult variation on that called “Washed By Blood: Lessons From My Time With Korn And My Journey To Christ” and 2010’s “Stronger: Forty Days Of Metal And Spirituality”.
