Brian “Head” Welch, guitarist for Korn was a guest on the “Provoke & Inspire” podcast. Which you can see the video interview below. During the interview, Head was asked how he’s been dealing with everything going on during the pandemic.
“It’s been really amazing. ‘Cause all this uncertainty happened: ‘What are we gonna do?’ And all these opportunities came to work on music.
“My heart goes out to the ones that are struggling right now, but as for me, it’s worked out pretty well, and I’m very thankful,” Head continued. “I’m just praying for everyone to get through this. And God’s just been showing me that he’s got it. Just like last time.
“In 2008, I lost everything — I lost vehicles, I went into bankruptcy, all that stuff. And I feel like this time, I was given a lot of gifts instead of falling with all the crap that’s going on.
“I know how to be in a lot of trials and [go through] hard times like this, and I know both ways God provides what you need,” Head stated. “Last time, I didn’t end up in jail; I didn’t end up on the streets — He provided for me. And this time I’m doing really well. So it’s all about trust. So I think that’s what He’s teaching me even more this year — just trusting Him in everything. It’s like Philippians 4:13: ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,’ and that’s preceded by Paul saying that ‘I’ve learned to live in lack, and I’ve learned to live in plenty.’ So that’s what we’re doing here — we’re learning to trust Him in both of those scenarios.”
For those that may not be familiar with Head’s past, he suffered from a severe drug addiction, left Korn in 2005, became a born again Christian and the best father he could be. Joined back with his brothers in Korn in 2013 and has continued to be with them since.
Head released a documentary detailing his struggles called “Loud Krazy Love”. It’s a really in depth look at how his drug addiction was impacting his young daughter and how thru finding Christ, he was able to change it all around.
