A religious awakening has prompted Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch to leave the powerhouse U.S. rock band, Billboard.com reported Wednesday.
Welch told KRAB-FM, Bakersfield, Calif., he would be at a local church Sunday to explain his departure.
"I had it in my heart to come here and explain to you," Welch said. "I’m good friends with Korn. I love those guys, and they love me, and they’re very happy for me." [Source]
I use to listen to Korn prior to my conversion. They even appeard on a recent episode of Monk. Their lyrics are laced with profanity and I stopped making excuses to continue to listen to them. I even use to play some of their songs on my guitar. It does make me wonder how many head-banging and Gregorian Chant loving traditionalist like me are out there?
