This surprised even me!
- The busy bees of the media are a’buzzing with news of Brian “Head” Welch of Korn. The hard rock guitarist found, as Southern Gospel folks would say, “that ol’ time religion”.
In a press release on their Web site, Korn announced they “parted ways with [Welch], who has chosen the Lord Jesus Christ as his savior, and will be dedicating his musical pursuits to that end.” It stunned the music world, leaving many scratching their heads and some dedicated fans saying, "It must be some practical joke."
It wasn't. The following Sunday, Welch spoke at Valley Bible Fellowship
in Bakersfield, California, to a cheering audience of 10,000. In his first public address, he said, “I'm the happiest man in the world right now.”
