"A life in the real music industry."
3 stars"

Welch's story is an interesting one. He rose to fame through the mid-late 1990s as a founding member of Korn, consistently turning out strong music. In the early 2000s Welch became increasingly distant from the band. Years of touring and living the rock and roll lifestyle were taking a costly toll on the guitarist. Addictions to alcohol and methamphetamine were tearing his life apart. This led to the momentous decision to leave Korn in 2005, after which he went into rehab, kicked his demons, and found a new spiritual life. All of this was chronicled in his memoirs, which bears the same name as this album.

Description

In February 2005, more than 10,000 people in Bakersfield, California, watched as Brian “Head” Welch-the former lead guitarist of the controversial rock band Korn-was saved by Jesus Christ. The event set off a media frenzy as observers from around the world sought to understand what led this rock star out of the darkness and into the light. Now, in this courageous memoir, Head talks for the first time about his shocking embrace of God and the tumultuous decade that led him into the arms of Jesus Christ. Offering a backstage pass to his time with Korn, Head tells the inside story of his years in the band and explains how his rock star lifestyle resulted in an all-consuming addiction to methamphetamines. He writes openly about the tour bus mayhem of Ozzfest and The Family Values tour, while providing a candid look at how the routine of recording, traveling, and partying placed him in a cycle of addiction that he could not break on his own. Speaking honestly about his addiction, Head details his struggles with the drug that ultimately led him to seek a higher power. Despite his numerous attempts to free himself from meth, nothing-not even the birth of his daughter-could spur him to kick it for good. Here Head addresses how, with the help of God, he emerged from his dangerous lifestyle and found a path that was not only right for his daughter, it was right for him.
