Korn Guitarist Finds God

Guitarist Brian Welch, has parted ways with Korn, the band he helped start.

Guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, a founding member of Korn, has left the band and has rededicated his life to Christianity, according to the group’s management.

“Korn has parted ways with guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch, who has chosen Jesus Christ as his savior, and will be dedicating his musical pursuits to that end,” a statement from the band reads. “Korn respects Brian’s wishes, and hopes he finds the happiness he’s searching for.”
Welch plans on further explaining his decision to leave Korn this coming Sunday, when he’ll address the congregation at the Valley Bible Fellowship in Bakersfield, California. And on February 28 he plans to leave for Israel.

Let me go google some Korn lyrics… eewwww. Yuck. The first one I stumbled across was “The Christmas Song” that begins,

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, everybody was stoned, even the mouse.

Man from the whore house and me from the jail,
I just settled down to get a piece of her ….

Screeeech. That’s enough of that. Yuck. No wonder a devout Christian would have enough of that.

Kudos to Mr. Brian Welch, and I’m going to look forward to future work from him as he dedicates himself to Christian music.
