Product Description

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.

Unabridged MP3-CD; approximately 6 hours 5 minutes; 1 MP3-CD; performed by Brian "Head" Welch.

Publisher's Description

The lead guitarist of Grammy Award–winning mega-band KoRn tells the incredible story of his life after leaving the hardcore music scene and of God leading him back to the band.

Brian Welch made headlines in 2005 when he became a born-again Christian and abandoned heavy metal supergroup KoRn. The follow-up to Brian’s 2007 bestseller, Save Me from Myself, With My Eyes Wide Open is the guitarist’s account of the brutal, eye-opening eight years he spent as a single dad between leaving KoRn and leading to his controversial decision to rejoin the band in 2013.

Welch’s very public and disruptive conversion to Christianity not only inspired him to leave a life of unbelievable excess with the band he helped found, but also gave him the strength he needed to overcome addictions to alcohol and methamphetamines. Nevertheless, Brian’s instinct for bad decisions lingered, and the damage done to his relationship with his daughter took more than a heavy metal hiatus to address.

Told with humor and no-holds-barred frankness, With My Eyes Wide Open will appeal to followers of KoRn, Christian fans of heavy metal, and anyone whose conversion to Christ has demanded that they change their lifestyle in a profound and painful way.

Author Bio

Brian Head Welch was born June 19, 1970, and grew up in Bakersfield, California. He found his calling at age eleven when he picked up his first guitar. Voracious practicing and a steady diet of hard rock classics filled the ensuing years, and shortly after high school he cofounded the rock band named KoRn. The band soon became a Grammy Awardwinning, multiplatinum force that shot to the top tier of the rock world and dominated the nu metal movement from the late nineties and beyond. Brian received six Grammy nominations, winning two, while selling some 40 million records worldwide. As KoRn continued to reach new creative and commercial heights, Brian found himself drowning in the excesses of rock and roll. Far from immune to the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Brian became addicted to crystal meth, spiraling out of control even as he continued to sell millions of albums. He gamely but unsuccessfully tried to balance his career and his obligations as a single father to his daughter, Jennea. In 2005, Brian finally resigned from KoRn and turned to Christ, dedicating his life to learning how to get to know his very personable God and giving his gifts to those most desperately in need. Having experienced such grievous personal lows amid the professional highs, Brian felt compelled to recount his life before and after KoRn. His autobiography, Save Me from Myself (HarperCollins), released in 2007 and became a New York Times bestseller. Brian also wrote a very personal forty-day devotional, Stronger, sharing stories about the forty scriptures closest to his heart.
