Brian “Head” Welch Talks About Rejoining Korn For Upcoming Shows
Reunited and it feels so good!
Brian “Head” Welch talks his new album and reuniting with Korn for shows in June and where it will go from there. I’m excited!
January will welcome the debut album “Between Here and Lost” from Brian “Head” Welch’s other band Love and Death. But more importantly, this summer Head will be joining Korn onstage for 2 shows in Germany and from there…..well see where it goes. The band is optimistic and so is Head but he isn’t making any promises.
Her recently sat down with Revolver magazine to explain where his head (pun intended) was at to decide to do the reunion and concerts.
Last year, I ended up at the Carolina Rebellion show. Evanescence played, and I had gone with P.O.D., because I was on tour with them. Korn was playing. I was just going to go say hi to them. I saw Munky, and we talked for a long time. It was the first time we talked in seven years. He’s sober now and everyone’s in a good place. They asked me to jam with them [on the song “Blind”] five minutes before the show. I was like, This was supposed to be the first time I was gonna watch Korn. I was going to go to the soundboard and everything. But I was like, “All right I’ll do it.” And I felt this connection. It was all positive. When I left Korn, there was all this negative crap everywhere. I went home and thought, That was a cool experience. So Munky called me a little bit later about reuniting [for the shows in Germany]. I told him I didn’t think it was the right time, but maybe later. Then I thought about it more and I called him back. I had so much fun jamming I said, “Let’s do it.” It’s a couple shows. I want to connect with the fans. It is the right time. We’re just going slow right now. We’re just gonna do those couple shows and see what happens. Just have a good time.
This makes me so excited! Head was always my favorite in Korn and I loved his guitar playing style. Are you guys excited about the possibility of Head rejoining Korn?
