“I had it all with Korn, but gave it up for a better life.” ~ Brian Welch
It was a special day for me last week when I had the opportunity to photograph Brian “Head” Welch for a larger project I am doing. Brian was the past Lead Guitarist and a singer for Korn, as well as current best selling author. Listening to his whole story can really make you think about life and the purpose we all have.
Here is his story and a few of the photos from the session….
When you’ve reached the top and something’s still missing, where do you go? Brian “Head Welch’s life was spinning out of control. As lead guitarist for the band Korn, people worshipped his music. He made all the money…millions. He had all the cars, houses and women he could handle, but still found himself with a crippling addiction to Meth. ”I couldn’t stay sober. I didn’t know how. I hit rock bottom.” There’s a point when you finally look in the mirror, at an image your’e simply tired of seeing. Brian wanted to quit, but what if quitting required complete surrender?
