Brian 'Head' Welch Biography
Brian Welch, born June 19, 1970 in Torrance, California USA, better known
around the world as 'Head', first picked up a guitar at the tender age
of eleven and found his original calling.
Barely out of high school, he helped found the Metal band Korn. The band became a grammy award winning, multi-platinum selling band and quickly soared to the top of the music world while selling some 30 million records internationally. The band was credited with being the major influence in the rise of the Nu-Metal movement.
In February 2005, Brian 'Head' Welch shocked the music world when he resigned from Korn to re-dedicate his life to Christ and focus on raising his daughter, Jennea, as a single father.
Significantly and perhaps most importantly, upon his resignation from
Korn, Head made clear to the music world that
he had not retired from the music and entertainment industry. He penned
an autobiography of his life, picked up and released by Harper Collins
Publishers in July 2007, entitled, "Save Me From Myself". Head
gained further acclaim as a successful author, when the book spent many
weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers List.
Brian 'Head' Welch's debut album also entitled, "Save Me From Myself", is a testimony of his life as he battled with drug and alcohol addiction. Released in September 2008, his first LP is a heavy-Rock epic, with a positive message; the set includes the single "Flush".
