KORN's Brian "Head" Welch Says God Led Him Back To The Band
Guitarist Brian "Head" Welch helped found Korn in 1993 and played with the band up to 2005. Welch left the group then left the group because he had "chosen the Lord Jesus Christ as his savior, and will be dedicating his musical pursuits to that end," and would not return until 2013.
Welch recently sat down with I Am Second to discuss his relationship with God and how he felt called back to the band by a higher power.
“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.”
