Conservatives, Maybe it's Time to Give Brian Welch a Break.

Korn guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch is a big believer in second chances.

The founding member of seminal metal band Korn left the band in 2005 after becoming a born-again Christian - the move didn't come as a surprise to many, considering the band's colourful history of drug and alcohol abuse, as well as their lyrics portraying themes of sex, abuse and self-destruction. In 2013, Welch rejoined his old compadres, after a couple of years involved in solo projects and a confessional autobiography.

In a recent interview with The Real TV Talk Show, Welch explained that he still gets criticism from conservative Christians about his move to rejoin Korn. 

"Listen God, I can't play those songs, that's not me anymore", he explains in the interview, describing a prayerful conversation he had when feeling led to rejoin the band, "But then He started showing me, 'what better place to be than in a bunch of people, thousands of people, that just are just like you...I've found Christ, what better place to be than surrounded by people who were just like me."

Welch goes on to explain the drastic changes to his backstage routine; where once he would send security to fetch girls, he now rallies audience members together to share his testimony and pray with them. He's often joined by bass player Fieldy, who, coincidently has also found God in his journey with the band.
