Brian Welch Admits Religion Became His New Addiction After Drugs
Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch talked about the days when he quit the band and become sober during a recent appearance on No Fuckin’ Regrets With Robb Flynn.
As you might already know, Brian decided to leave Korn in 2005 after having kids because he thought that living like a rockstar with drugs and alcohol is good for the children.
In the conversation, Brian mentioned that even though he overcome the addiction to drugs, this time, he was obsessed with Christianity and proved that he always lives on the edges.
While he was pointing out that something come into his house, he believed that Christ was doing something in him and it was pretty real for him. Also, Brian said that he is glad who he is right now.
Here is what Brian ‘Head’ 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.”
