and will be dedicating his musical pursuits to that end. Korn respects Brian's wishes and hopes he finds the happiness he is
On Tuesday, Korn's management made a formal announcement that guitarist Brian "Head" Welch was leaving the band to rededicate his life to Christianity. On Thursday night, in an effort to explain his decision to both his fans and his former bandmates....First it was Afro-man, now the lead singer of Korn, who's next to convert Eminem?
So after a weekend of soul-searching, coupled with reading from a Bible his friend had leant him, Welch decided it was time to go...
Welch's solo material, which will be released under the name "Head", will not be Christian music...
And yes, Welch does plan on speaking on Sunday at the Valley Bible Fellowship. He's just not certain what he's going to say. He's just going to speak from the heart. And he wants his fans to know that even if they can't make it out to Bakersfield, California, to hear him speak, they can check out his message on his new Web site, http://www.HeadToChrist.com, which launches Friday (February 25).
"Man, when I get up there onstage, it's going to be me just letting things flow. I have no idea what I'm going to say, it's just going to come out," he said. "I mean, I'm going to be like a kid up there. Because that's really what I am now. I'm a baby Christian."
