Korn’s Brian ‘Head’ Welch: My Life In 10 Songs

Metal Hammer

Korn and Love And Death guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch has crammed more into his 30 years as an artist than most: from guitarist in one of metal’s most important bands, to years in the wilderness , to finding faith, redemption and a way back into the Korn line up and living a clean and sober lifestyle. As he prepares to release Love And Death’s  second album, Perfectly Preserved, we asked him to give us the story behind the songs from his own back catalogue that have come to define him.

Metal Hammer line break

Korn – Blind (Korn, 1994)

Blind is interesting because Jonathan (Davis, Korn vocalist) had his own band before Korn, Sex Art, and a few of the members of that band were quite controlling and told him what to do. He wasn’t free to write as much, they wanted to write what the band wanted to be. But he came to Korn we were like ‘Dude, this is your job, writing lyrics is what you do!’, so with Blind we heard his bands demo and we thought there was a lot of potential. They had the opening with this droning guitar, and then he comes in ‘ARE YOU READY!’, so Jonathan came to us and said that he wanted to make it really heavy.
