KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch (pictured below) says that he is "shocked" by the news that the singer of AS I LAY DYING, Tim Lambesis, was arrested for allegedly hiring someone to kill Tim's estranged wife.Lambesis, who has said he considers himself to be a Christian and acknowledges that he finds inspiration for lyrical content from biblical texts, was taken into custody without incident on Tuesday (May 7) around 2 p.m. at an Oceanside business, according to San Diego Sheriff's Department. He was charged with solicitation of another to commit murder of his wife, who resides in Encinitas. "Completely shocked, saddened, confused about Tim from AS I LAY DYING," Welch wrote last night on his Facebook page. "I was just on his bus over a month ago. I feel grieved." KORN has begun work on its 11th studio album and first Welch back in the fold since 2003's "Take A Look In The Mirror". Welch left KORN in 2005 to become a born-again Christian. The band never officially replaced him and stayed a four-piece, although they've used several touring guitarists for live work.
