Brian Welch Admits He Went Too Far With Religion Which Became An Obsession For Him
Korn guitarist Brian Head Welch talked about the days when he left the band during a recent appearance on No Fuckin’ Regrets With Robb Flynn.
As you might remember, Brian decided to leave the band back in 2005 and revealed that he quit drugs and alcohol at the same time. Additionally, Brian revealed that he become a religious person during this period.
In the conversation, Brian admitted that he became obsessed with Christianity as he did with the drugs in the past. Also, he felt that something came into his house and he believed that Christ did something in him.
While saying that he can not explain what really happened, Brian also admitted that he went too far with the religion. Moreover, Brian said that he is glad he got through all of it and he is glad who he is right now.
Here is what Brian Welch said:
“The crazy thing is I had an experience with something from another dimension. And it wasn’t the religion — going to church and being a good boy — it was, like, I felt something come into my house, and I can’t explain it to this day. But I believe that it was Christ doing something in me.
So that was real — that was very real. But yes, I think I went too far with it. And I got obsessed with it, just like I was obsessed with the drugs. I believe I did, for sure.
And I had to come out of that and find normalcy, because there’s nothing worse than a freakin’ irritating religious person just shoving it down your throat — there’s nothing worse than that.”
“And you saw it on the documentary, Jonathan’s, like, ‘I hate those motherfuckers.’ People can’t stand ’em. And for years, we’ve had those Christians outside of Korn concerts, saying Korn’s of the devil, and all this. It’s crazy — it’s a crazy thing.
But I’m just glad I got through it. And I’m glad that I am who I am now, and I have a lot of peace and rest for my soul. I feel very leveled and at peace with myself.”
