During a radio interview on “Do You Know Jack?”, Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch opened up about his upcoming fourth book, “With My Eyes Wide Open”. The book is tentatively due to release in May 2016.
While talking about his next book, Head said, “You know what? It’s really a funny book, and then it gets really deep. So it’s, like, the first half, it seems to be funny, and then we start digging into some stuff. So it’s basically just… it’s about the hidden years when I left Korn and all the craziness and stupidity that I went through. But then also the funny times, like raising my daughter, and then going throughout the years, and then the whole Korn reunion thing, and then me nearly losing my daughter to a lot of self-harm and suicidal thoughts. She’s okay now, but I lost her there for a little bit. So I go through all that, and she everything. It’s a real and raw book. It’s just… Gosh, my life is just so intense, you know, so it’s good to write about, I guess. ”
Head’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.
Head left Korn in 2005, saying he needed to focus on raising his daughter away from the lifestyle of rock and roll. After getting sober and finding Christianity, Head pursued a solo career and then rejoined Korn officially in 2013. The first album Korn released since his return was “The Paradigm Shift”.
