“KORN has parted ways with guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch, who has chosen Jesus Christ as his savior, and will be dedicating his musical pursuits to that end,” read a statement posted this week on the band’s Web site.
If Head devoting his life to religion leads to the end of Korn, I’m actually ok with that. And that would have been unthinkable just two years ago, because I fuckin loved Korn. But this would be a mercy killing. They were so great for so long and then they hit the wall harder than Princess Di. To go from songs like ‘ADIDAS’, ‘Clown’ and ‘Twist’ to a cover of ‘Word Up’ is just embarrassing. Almost as embarrassing as how unfunny I made this post. Almost.
