Former Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch reunited with his ex-bandmates over the weekend
Former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch joined back up with his ex-bandmates this past Saturday (May 5) at the Carolina Rebellion festival at the Rockingham Speedway in Rockingham, N.C. The group performed their influential song, “Blind,” at the show, and it was the first time in seven years that Welch and Korn rocked the same stage together.
“It was so amazing Saturday night playin’ with Korn,” Welch tweeted about the reunion. “Reconciling with family is always good. So much love on stage and from Korn fans. Many tears shed. God is love.”
Welch recently stated that he has no animosity toward the guys of Korn, so last weekend’s reunion isn’t exactly a shocker. “ …I am very happy for those guys and proud of that music and totally past the point of holding an ill will for any of them,” Welch told Legendary Rock Interviews. “I just hung out with Jonathan [Davis, lead singer] and his wife the whole night a few months back and hung out with Fieldy [bass player] sometime after that when I was out on tour with my band. It is without a doubt all good. I have nothing but good vibes for them and I’m sure we will always stay in touch.”
Welch, who left Korn in 2005 after becoming a born-again Christian, has a new band in tow called Love and Death. The group unleashed a five song EP called “Chemicals” last week, and they’re currently on the road with fellow Christian rockers P.O.D. and RED. Expect a full album to drop later this year.
