The transition from nu-metal meth-head to Jesus-loving single dad is even heavier than it sounds.
When Brian "Head" Welch left KoRn in 2005, an unexpected conversion to Christianity had finally broken the hold that drugs and alcohol had on him. What he expected was a shiny new life, living as the exemplary father to his young daughter that he should have been all along. What he got instead was a decade-long trial by fire.
From the perils of fathering a tween addicted to social media and cutting herself to the reality checks that come with playing as a solo musician to a bevy of unwise financial decisions that eventually led to bankruptcy and a host of lawsuits, Brian's journey back to KoRn was rife with discord. And yet, somewhere along the way he also found a deep and abiding trust in Jesus, so much so that when the call came to return to the darkness of the music scene with his newfound light, he did so with the confidence of the one who went with him. With My Eyes Wide Open tells the story of a born-again Christian who does everything-from the praiseworthy to the deplorable-at 110 percent.
Brian "Head" Welch was one of the founding members of Korn. Raised in Bakersfield, California, Head struggled with addictions to alcohol and drugs for much of his life. In 2005, after an intense spiritual awakening, he was instantly delivered from years of substance abuse with almost no symptoms of withdrawal. At that time, he quit Korn to pursue an intimate relationship with God and a closer relationship with his daughter, Jennea. Today, he lives and prays with Jennea in Arizona.
