An Out-of-Control Rock Star. An Inescapable Addiction to Drugs. A Miraculous Redemption through Jesus Christ.
You think you've heard this story before but you haven't. Washed by Blood is a look at the dramatic saving power of Jesus Christ unlike any other—one that shows how God looks out for all of us, even those who seem farthest away from his grace.
Brian "Head" Welch was a rock star who thought he had it all. He was the lead guitarist in Korn, one of the biggest and most controversial rock bands on the planet. He lived in a mansion, had millions of dollars in the bank, and legions of fans all over the globe.
He was living the good life, and it should have been perfect. But it was all a lie.
What no one knew was that backstage and away from the crowds, Head was fighting a debilitating addiction to methamphetamines, and that nothing—not even the birth of his daughter—could make him quit for good. He had given up. He was empty inside. He spent his days contemplating suicide convinced that each high would be his last.
And that was when he found God.
Washed by Blood tells the remarkable story of how God's unconditional love freed Head from his addictions and saved him from death. Here Head describes the joys and struggles of his journey to faith, detailing how Jesus has helped him cope with his pain and find the path that's right for both him and his daughter. An account of triumphs, hardships, and the healing power of Jesus, Washed by Blood is an inspirational demonstration that God is always there to save even the most troubled souls.
Brian "Head" Welch was one of the founding members of Korn. In 2005, after an intense spiritual awakening, he was instantly delivered from years of substance abuse with almost no symptoms of withdrawal. Today he lives and prays with his daughter Jennea in Arizona.

DebsAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5RighteousApril 19, 2012DebsAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about how this book would read and what he would say. I was extremely blessed by this book. He humbly admits his failures, his struggles and his victories. He shows that coming out of the darkness of sin, you stumble but you get back up. I love that he does not credit one person or ministry with his faith. God used multiple ministries to speak to him. When I got done all I could think was righteous. For those that have kids, teenagers can definitely read this but maybe not middle school kids, depending on their maturity. Since it deals with the topics of drugs, alcohol, partying and sex.

I FEEL THAT YOU MUST BE ABLE TO RELATE TO "HEAD" TO REALLY UNDERSTAND AND FEEL WHAT HE DISCUSSES IN THIS BOOK. THIS IS WELL WORTH THE READ FOR ANY ROCK MUSIC FAN. YOU CAN PERSONALLY FEEL THE EMOTIONS AS HE IS WALKING YOU THROUGH HIS LIFE; FROM CHILDHOOD UNTIL HIS REBIRTH. IT IS AMAZING THE TRANSFORMATION THAT GOD WILL DO IF WE ALLOW HIM TO WORK IN US! THE KEY IS ACCEPTING JESUS CHRIST AND HAVING FAITH IN OUR HEAVENLY FATHER. BEING "SICK AND TIRED OF BEING SICK AND TIRED" WILL HAVE YOU ON YOUR KNEES ACCEPTING GOD, AND THIS BOOK/STORY IS PROOF. I ASSURE ANYONE WHO HAS FOLLOWED THE BAND KORN, OR HAS HAD SOME SORT OF ADDICTION OR TRAUMA IN YOUR LIFE, THAT YOU WILL BE MOVED AND MAYBE EVEN ACCEPT GOD AS YOU HEAVENLY FATHER AND JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR.
Sarabeth Huddleston3 Stars Out Of 5April 3, 2009Sarabeth HuddlestonI ordered this after reading "Head's" other book, not realizing it has the same content. This one is broken down into smaller sections, doesn't have the photographs, but adds questions for discussion. The content was extremely enlightening and could be a great tool especially for reaching young people and KORN fans.
Teresa Asbury5 Stars Out Of 5January 8, 2009Teresa AsburyI purchased this book for my son... who was a big Korn fan for Christmas. He has read the book, and says that it has inspired him so much. That he is looking for a church to attend in his new resiendence in AL. I believe that we should lift up our children to the lord, re-introduce them to God in anyway possible.
