I saw this. I think Korn is crap, but I think it's cool he became a Christian. (Hopefully he goes to a good, Bible-based church.)

Good for him, not many people are willing to give up the rock n' roll lifestyle. It's a rare gem of news, hopefully Korn fans won't hate the guy.

(I think he should still play music, but with a band that has a more positive message)

The following was posted on the Passion Breeds Followers (a Scott Stapp) board by rulzo529:

Brian 'Head' Welch Leaves Korn, Citing Moral Objections To Band's Music
Guitarist plans to further explain his decision to a church congregation in Bakersfield, California, on Sunday.

Guitarist Brian "Head" Welch, a founding member of Korn, has left the band and has rededicated his life to Christianity, according to the group's management.

"Korn has parted ways with guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch, who has chosen Jesus Christ
as his savior, and will be dedicating his musical pursuits to that end," a statement from the band reads. "Korn respects Brian's wishes, and hopes he finds the happiness he's searching for."

The announcement puts to rest weeks of rumors that Welch was unhappy with Korn's direction. On February 8, he had apparently written a "letter of resignation" to the band's management. In the note, Welch detailed a long list of reasons for leaving the band, including increased moral objections to Korn's music and videos. In particular, he was upset by how he was portrayed in the clip for their cover of Cameo's "Word Up," off their recently released Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 album. In the video, Welch's face was superimposed on a dog patrolling a strip club.

Welch plans on further explaining his decision to leave Korn this coming Sunday, when he'll address the congregation at the Valley Bible Fellowship in Bakersfield, California. And on February 28 he plans to leave for Israel.

Korn formed in 1992 as the Bakersfield metal act LAPD, which featured Welch and guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer, bassist Reggie "Fieldy" Arvizu and drummer David Silveria. In 1993, vocalist Jonathan Davis joined the group, and they rechristened themselves Korn. Their self-titled 1994 debut went double platinum and was hailed as a landmark album in the burgeoning nü-metal scene. The group released six studio albums with Welch, sales of which have topped the 11-million mark in the U.S. alone. Their final album with Welch, Take a Look in the Mirror, was released in 2003.

According to Korn's management, the band is currently in the studio working on a new record, which is due in stores in September.

It's good that he turned Christian. Also because he was a bad guitar player.

Yeah, been around a number of years, the lead singer's married to Gwen Stefani. Did a really good song called "Glycerine", too.

Anywho, as I said in the other thread, if that's what makes him happy, then so be it. I'm also glad that he's not trying to force his bandmates to change their lifestyles-he's doing what works for him, and letting them go on their own way. I like that.

I agree, if this is what makes him happy, it's cool. When you think about it the "rock 'n roll lifestyle" is pretty stressy and exhausting. I'd hate it.
