Korn’s Head Reveals The Three Guitarist He First Fall-In-Love With

Korn guitarist Brian Head Welch talked about his musical heroes and influences during a recent appearance on No Fuckin’ Regrets With Robb Flynn.

In the conversation, Brian revealed the first fall-in-love guitarist that influenced his career, George Lynch, Eddie Van Halen, and Randy Rhoads, and showed his respect for the legendary musicians.

However, Brian wanted to talk about George Lynch because he had a special place among these guitarists. While saying that he still loves George Lynch today, he didn’t forget to mention his amazing talent.

Brian pointed out that George had an amazing vibrato in his solos and said that he sounded like nobody else. To explain how it felt to listen to his solo, Brian stated that it was like the guitar had a voice.

Here is what Brian Welch said:

“George Lynch was my No. 1. I got into Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads – they were my first fall-in-love guitarists, but once I heard George Lynch, he made that guitar talk.

The vibrato he had, he sounded like nobody else in his solos, I mean, he’s just so unique, I really loved him back then. Still to this day, you know, Ray [Luzier], our drummer has a band with George Lynch, KXM.

It’s Doug Pinnick From King’s X, George Lynch, and Ray, it’s a three-piece, it’s pretty cool. George does the signature solos and everything. Sometimes it’s a little bluesy, but it’s really a cool project, you should check it out.

It’s like – I wouldn’t call it this back then, but it had like a sexy – like just talking, it was like the guitar had a voice, I don’t know how to explain it.”
