WITH MY EYES WIDE OPEN: Miracles and Mistakes on My Way Back to KoRn

WITH MY EYES WIDE OPEN                                        BRIAN "HEAD" WELCH

He left KoRn to help himself. He went back to help others. And along the way, he nearly lost everything.

A life-changing spiritual awakening freed Brian “Head” Welch from a stranglehold of drugs and alcohol and prompted him to leave the highly successful nu-metal band KoRn in 2005. What followed was a decade-long trial by fire, from the perils of fathering a teen lost in depression and self-mutilation to the harsh realities of playing solo and surviving the shattering betrayal of a trusted friend. In this intensely inspiring redemption saga, perhaps most inspiring is Brian’s radical decision to rejoin KoRn and reconcile with the tribe of people he once considered family in the metal music scene.

Brian returned to his musical roots with a clear head and a devoted heart. Though his story is wild, hilarious, and deeply poignant, the message is simple: God will love you into the freedom of being yourself, as long as you keep the relationship going and never, ever quit.

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
This is Brian “Head” Welch story after he left Korn which is a heavy metal rock band. He turned his life over to Christ and along the way he made mistakes. Which he chronicles the people that he trusted but does not fault them but looks at himself for wanting to do the right thing but not looking at the whole person even though there were signs for him to see? He moves on to how he stayed in music and working towards a christian album and how once those things started to work out he was back on the road and he still needed to spend time with his daughter which is the main reason why he changed his life to begin with. He goes into her problems and she gives a good account at the end of the book that any young girl going through cutting should read and look to get help. He then goes into his journey back to Korn and back to making a record doing that partly here in Bakersfield and in L.A. a very good book and I am glad that he added his daughters’ part to the book. A very good read. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
