Korn Singer on Head: 'Crazy Christian Stuff Saved His Life'
After the early rejoice over guitarist Brian "Head" Welch's return to Korn fold, nu metallers now started opening up about the collective state of mind during his departure. In a recent Metal Hammer exclusive, singer Jonathan Davis admitted that although he thinks Head's spirituality wasn't too sane, it most certainly saved his life. "'Head' played in my town, Bakersfield, and my wife dragged my a-s down there," Davis started. "We hung out all night and we was back to normal, he wasn't into that crazy Christian sh-t no more. Then he came to Carolina Rebellion and it was the first time he saw Munky, and that really hit Munky hard because that was his other half, musically." The frontman continued by expressing his unprejudiced approach and honestly addressing the entire matter. "He was just cuckoo with religious stuff," Davis explained. "I've seen people go through it, and he was kicking speed so obviously he's not gonna be right in the head for a while. Him getting all crazy Christian and stuff, what it really did was save his life, so I don't give a f--k. I've had too many people around me die from drugs and I wouldn't want that to happen. Him and [Fieldy] are born-again Christians, that's fine. I don't choose sides, I've got Christian friends and Satanist friends." Head then chipped in, remembering some of his more severe Christianity moments. "The press twisted a lot of that stuff too, but I was calling it on myself," the axeman said. "I remember I took my braids out and I had this curly hair, then I grew a beard and looked like Jesus! I was going to be baptized and they gave me this white robe. It was like, 'This is gonna be awesome, I'm gonna look like Jesus and everyone's gonna make fun of me.' I didn't even care anymore." Korn are currently cooking up the release of their new record "The Paradigm Shift." Set to drop on October 8, it will mark the band's first album to feature "Head" on guitar in a decade.
