KORN Guitarist “I’m So Glad Jonathan Fell in Love With Heavy Music Again”

Brian “Head” Welch is most known as one of the founding members of nu metal pioneers Korn. Brian has enjoyed lots of success in Korn, from winning Grammy’s and having one of the most successful albums of the late 90’s in “Follow The Leader”.  Despite all that success Welch struggled with drug and alcohol abuse and eventually left Korn to focus on his sobriety and new found faith.  Eventually Brian would rejoin Korn, and release 3 albums with them, including their most recent The Nothing, as well as putting out a documentary, Loud Krazy Love that showcased his time away from the band, rebounding with his daughter and how he ended up mending fences with his Korn brothers.

Epicenter Festival Friday Review & Photo Gallery

Korn

The inaugural Epicenter Festival that was held in Rockingham, North Carolina earlier this month was, to most, a major success. Others will disagree, pointing out flaws in traffic congestion for the first two days and the Day 2 headliners, Tool and Judas Priest, among others being canceled due to severe weather. Which I agree was a little inconvenient, but when you understand anything can happen during a festival, especially a festival’s first year as well as a new venue, you take it as it comes. Although there were a few hiccups throughout the weekend (nothing major that would warrant the degree of dissatisfaction that a lot of individuals have expressed) the majority of the festival-goers got their money’s worth and really enjoyed yet another amazing weekend hosted by the Danny Wimmer Presents crew.
