Former KORN Guitarist BRIAN 'HEAD' WELCH: Jesus Is 'So Real'

The Revolution TV recently conducted an interview with former KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch. You can now watch the chat in two parts below.

Welch said in a new interview with the Christian And Missionary Alliance in Buffalo, Minnesota that he has "no desire" to ever rejoin the band he left six years ago. Welch exited KORN in February 2005 after announcing that he had been saved by Jesus Christ and was devoting his life and music to Christianity. He has subsequently issued two books and a solo album.

When asked if he would ever consider opening as a solo artist for KORN, Welch told the Missionary Alliance, "It just sounds weird to me, 'cause we haven't spoken or hung out in a room together — except me and the bass player did, but the rest of the guys, no. But would I ever do it? I wouldn't go back to KORN, 'cause that's going backwards. I'm not gonna do that, and I don't want to, I have no desire to. But opening? It would have to be meant to be. I wouldn't just go."

Rumors circulated last year that Welch was rejoining the band, although they were denied by the group.

Singer Jonathan Davis told The Pulse Of Radio that it was Welch's approach to his beliefs that he had problems with. "I remember going in, walking into our studio. He went to go pick up his stuff and he wrote a note on one of the roadcases saying that he loves us and 'if you're ever ready to come over to my side, I'll teach you how not to be a slave to money' and all this stuff," he said. "It's just all this preachy stuff that I don't want to hear. I always have a problem with people trying to push their beliefs on me."

Welch said in a May 2009 interview with Noisecreep that he was happy with his decision to leave the group, although he added, "If I ever felt God lead me back to KORN for some reason, I'd go."
