I fully recommend this book and anything with Brian's name upon it to anybody looking for help strength forgiveness and hope.
God Bless you
This has various reasons. One - he is not a good writer by any means. Of course this does not come as a big surprise, yet still I expected something a little more articulate. If you can look past the sloppy style of writing, you will still find yourself entertained quite a bit by the story and drawn to the various steps of the downfall of the man's life. This is not only because of the things that he has been through but also because one gets sort of an insight into Korn's daily life, from recording albums, writing songs, playing shows, and taking drugs.
Then comes the second part and with it a whole lot of different issues that ruined the entire read for me. First of all, Welch does not seem to see himself as responsible for his acts. It's either the drugs or God who control his actions and the words that come out of his mouth. What exactly makes this journey his effort then? Isn't the title in this case misleading? Shouldn't it rather be "How God found me, told me to quit Korn, kick drugs, and told me to tell my story"?
The way that Welch was talking about God and Jesus didn't bother me, but rather disappointed me. It reminded me of a little kid that is told about this "man in the clouds" for the first time. Instead of providing the reader with an interesting insight into the field of spirituality, Welch incorporates this - in my opinion - childish state of wonder about everything. There is no point where Welch seems to question the "signs" that God "gives" him.Read more ›
Firstly I am impressed that Brian managed to beat his deamons and Sencondly I am suprised how detailed the book is, very straight to the point and a good read for any fan or non-fan.
This is a hugely insirational book, really fantastic. Honestly, even if you are very skeptical about organised religion, juts check it out to know how bad the supposed rock star dream life was, and how much better it was for him to escape and know God.
It is sometimes shocking, disturbing, but also thoughtful, deep, funny, wild, amazing and true.
For fans of KORN, rock music, heavy metal of all kinds, God or just tales of people saving their lives in the most profound ways. A really great read.
I'm glad he got himself sorted out and away from drugs, but the way he starts stating God as a FACT and the presence of a divine spirit, it became utterly absurd. Maybe if you're into all that Christian mumbo-jumbo, you might enjoy it. I tuned out though. Didn't bother finishing it.
