He left KoRn to help himself. He went back to help others. And along the way, he nearly lost everything.
A life-changing spiritual awakening freed Brian "Head" Welch from a stranglehold of drugs and alcohol and prompted him to leave the highly successful nu-metal band KoRn in 2005. What followed was a 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 the shattering betrayal of a trusted friend. In this intensely inspiring redemption saga, perhaps most inspiring is Brian's radical decision to rejoin KoRn and reconcile with the tribe of people he once considered family in the metal music scene.
Brian returned to his musical roots with a clear head and a devoted heart. Though his story is wild, hilarious, and deeply poignant, the message is simple: God will love you into the freedom of being yourself, as long as you keep the relationship going and never, ever quit.
"Brian is a man who knows Jesus intimately, and he carries that light with him wherever he goes. One of his passions is his tribe – the KoRn fans. And once Jesus set him free, it's only natural that he wanted to bring that same light to his tribe. He wants them to come with him on this journey with Christ, and he's going for it, one fan at a time." Darren Wilson, Director of Finger of God, Furious Love, Father of Lights, Holy Ghost and Holy Ghost Reborn
"Not many believers could be in the atmosphere that Head is in and function-not being influenced by your surroundings, but influencing them. Jesus did! He is our model. Awesome job, Head!" Todd White, Evangelist
