With My Eyes Wide Open Miracles and Mistakes on My Way Back to KoRn By Brian "Head" Welch Review
He left KoRn to help himself. He went back to help others. And along the way, he nearly lost everything.
A life-changing spiritual awakening freed Brian “Head” Welch from a stranglehold of drugs and alcohol and prompted him to leave the highly successful nu-metal band KoRn in 2005. What followed was a decade-long trial by fire, from the perils of fathering a teen lost in depression and self-mutilation to the harsh realities of playing solo and surviving the shattering betrayal of a trusted friend. In this intensely inspiring redemption saga, perhaps most inspiring is Brian’s radical decision to rejoin KoRn and reconcile with the tribe of people he once considered family in the metal music scene.
Brian returned to his musical roots with a clear head and a devoted heart. Though his story is wild, hilarious, and deeply poignant, the message is simple: God will love you into the freedom of being yourself, as long as you keep the relationship going and never, ever quit.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- Thank you to Brian for not being afraid to go forth in his choices and stick by them. It takes strength and willpower beyond means sometimes. Most people would straighten up and move on forgetting any and everything from the past, but this author had the courage to turn back and give his new self to bring a stronger future for everyone involved and along the way has this great book that is inspiration through it all.
