2021 Prayer Breakfast
BRIAN “HEAD” WELCH, was born June 19, 1970 and grew up in Bakersfield, California. He found his calling at age eleven when he picked up his first guitar. Voracious practicing and a steady diet of hard rock classics filled in the ensuing years, and shortly after high school, he co-founded a metal band named Korn. The band soon became a Grammy award-winning, multi-platinum force that shot to the top tier of the rock world and dominated the new metal movement of the late Nineties. Korn’s 1998 Follow the Leader album cemented the band as rock titans when they debuted at number one on the Billboard charts. For his efforts with Korn, Head received six Grammy nominations, winning two, while selling some 40 million records worldwide.
As Korn continued to reach new creative and commercial heights, Head found himself drowning in the excesses of rock and roll. Far from immune to the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Head became addicted to crystal meth, spiraling out of control even as he continued to sell millions of albums. He gamely but unsuccessfully tried to balance his career and his obligations as a single father to his daughter Jennea. In 2005, he finally resigned from Korn and turned to Christianity, dedicating his life to giving his gifts to those most desperately in need.
While away from Korn, he penned his 2007 autobiography, Save Me from Myself (HarperCollins). In the book, Head speaks candidly about his continued bouts of depression and his struggles with darker impulses as he comes to terms with his faith-based life, finding guidance and inspiration in the scriptural passages in the book. Welch uses both Old and New Testament wisdom to outline practical applications to virtually every situation and decision he faces in life.The book quickly landed on the New York Times bestseller list, inspiring him to follow it up with a second book, Washed by Blood (2008, HarperCollins).
