U.K.’s Total Guitar magazine met up with Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch to find out more about his latest Ibanez signature model. Watch the clip below.
Welch left Korn in 2005, explaining that he didn’t want to raise his daughter around the rock and roll lifestyle the band was living at the time. “The last two years I was in KORN, I partied non-stop and started doing speed every day,” he said. “I got so addicted that I got scared. I tried to go to rehab, but that didn’t work. No one could help me. Then I ended up seeing if Jesus was real, and He instantly took the drugs away. He revealed Himself to me and gave me the strength. Once I figured that out, I knew I was accountable to God.”
Welch got sober and found Christianity before rejoining the band officially in 2013. The first album he recorded with Korn, after his return to the band, was “The Paradigm Shift.” Welch has released 3 books about his journey through life and is due to release his fourth, ‘With My Eyes Wide Open,’ in Spring of 2016.
