Ex-KORN Guitarist's 'Letter To DIMEBAG': Video Posted Online

A video of former KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch's performing a tribute song to the late PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, entitled "Letter to Dimebag", has been posted online at the Valley Bible Fellowship web site. Watch it at this location (Quicktime). "It is written in guitar language, and I did it because [Dimebag] used to tell me we needed to put guitar solos in KORN," Welch explained. "So this song's for him, and to him. It's saying how much I miss him. Even though we weren't too close, his very friendly personality had a great impact on me!"

Welch is currently completing work on his solo CD, which is tentatively due later in the year. The as-yet-untitled effort may include another track which Welch has described as "a personal letter to 50 CENT from God."

"The Big Guy speaks through me a lot when I write, and I have a song for 50 CENT I wrote in the Holy Land. I feel like it's a personal letter to 50 from God, so I'm going to give it to him personally and see what his reaction is," Welch explained to MTV News. "If it's a positive reaction and he's willing to talk to me, then I'm not gonna release it, but if the reaction is not positive, I'm going to share it with the world."

Brian concluded, "This CD is full of heart-grabbing music, man! I can't wait to get it out!"
