Toledo Blade religion editor David Yonke spoke with former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch about his spiritual conversion and departure from the band. “It’s a lie, man. That’s why I wanted to get out of there,” Welch said of his departure. “There’s a lot of reasons why I left Korn. We all look like friends on stage, or on video, like we’re jamming and playing good music. But in reality, the band was falling apart. The people hated each other… I couldn’t live like that with my friends worshipping money. I couldn’t live like that. People wanted to chase girls, they had a silent competition about finding the best girls, and who had the best party on the bus. It was childish. It broke my heart. I just love those guys, even though they think I’m crazy. I pray for them every day.”
