Product description

From the Back Cover

In the summer of 2007, Brian 'Head' Welch, the former lead guitarist for the rock band Korn, took the music world by storm with his New York Times bestselling autobiography, Save Me from Myself. Recounting his years in the band, his debilitating addiction to drugs, and his unprecedented salvation through Jesus, Head's story gave strength to a whole generation of Christians through its uplifting tale of real world excess, spiritual reward, and the power of God. Now, Head has written a young adult companion to his bestseller, sharing his inspirational story of rock, addiction, and redemption with Christian teens across the country. Here Head talks openly about his shocking embrace of God, examining the signs that had been leading him to Jesus for his entire life and the circumstances that caused him to miss them. Discussing the difficulties of his childhood and teenage years, Head describes how his struggles with bullies, his inability to fit in, and his substance abuse which plagued him from a young age all combined to take him in the wrong direction. Eventually, he took refuge in the group of friends that would become Korn, a group of high school outcasts and a musical misfits like himself-kids who shared not only his taste in clothes but also his dream to be a rock star. Offering readers a backstage pass to Korn's success, Head speaks honestly about the toll that his fame took on his psyche and his addiction to methamphetamines that drove him to the darkest times of his life. Instead of saving him, fame had failed him, and the ceaseless routine of recording, traveling, and partying only succeeded in placing him in a cycle of addiction that he could not break on his own. Despite his numerous attempts to free himself from meth, nothing---not even the birth of his daughter---could spur him to kick it for good. Here Head explains how with the help of God, he emerged from this dangerous lifestyle and found a path that was not only right for his daughter, it was right for him. Discussing how his newfound faith has influenced his relationship with his daughter, his life, and his music, Head describes the challenging but rewarding events since his conversion, exposing the truth about how the trials of his life have made his faith run deeper with each passing day.

About the Author

Brian "Head" Welch was one of the founding members of Korn. In 2005, after an intense spiritual awakening, he was instantly delivered from years of substance abuse with almost no symptoms of withdrawal. Today he lives and prays with his daughter Jennea in Arizona.

Having ordered Brians first book (Save me from myself) and this one at the same time, I am incredibly annoyed. I read his first book and then decided to read this one. IT IS THE SAME BOOK.

Having loved 'Save me from myself' I had really high hopes for this and after the first paragraph I was a little confused. I held the books next to each other and compared them word for word. They are the same only this one misses out some details and asks you questions to think about at the end of every chapter.

Do not buy this book, save your time and read 'Save me from Myself' if you haven't already.

This is a shorter follow on book from the first huge selling autobiography which told of how HEAD left huge metal band KORN at the hight of their fame, leaving the money, women, drugs, problems to know God and his family before it was too late.
This book looks at chapters and times from those days a few years ago, and discusses why things happened, how, what God was doing, how scripture helps to get through or past bad times such as some of those. Very helpful, interesting, book for fans of HEAD, KORN, Nu Metal, rock stars and having a good life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't read my review when you could be reading this book! 18 May 2015
By A Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I would like to preface this review with the fact that I have never listened to Korn, and that I don't listen to Brian's current music either. This allows me to give an unbiased review of the content of this book. Growing up in a Christian home and being a Christian as long as you can remember sometimes seems boring. At best my testimony seems that somehow in hindsight I am in a better place than I was before with my faith and so I have had the Joy of the lord my entire life and things continue to get better. This book changed the way I feel about my own testimony. Brian's honesty and integrity displayed in his testimony are truly inspirational. Although I don't need to hit rock bottom the appreciate the joy of my own testimony this book really helped rationalize what that would be like. By seeing how drastically Brian's life changed and seeing the work God is doing in him it provided me stronger evidence that God really is moving in lives. This book provided me the opportunity to add these feelings and emotions that Brian went through to my own testimony in a sense. Overall the book is great, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I only read 1 or 2 books a year, and this one I was honestly unable to put down and completed it within a few days time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Similar to save me from myself 22 July 2015
By The Geologist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a lot like Head's other book "save me from myself", to me it's just an overall view. Save me from myself was more detailed. It's still an amazing book. If someone like him can change his life around and follow God then what's anyone's excuse not to?

5.0 out of 5 stars thank you for your testimony! 29 Aug. 2013
By Trudi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While I wouldn't call this book a stroke of literary genius, it is honest, it is forthright, it is unapologetic and raw. I am thankful that Mr. Welch had the courage to share his story and had the courage to show the world what God has done in his life. As Christians we are commanded to share God's love with the world and this book does that. For those who suffer in the throngs of slavery to worldly things, may this book give you the encouragement to lay it all at the feet of Jesus, because nothing, absolutely NOTHING you have done can keep you from His love. It's there, you just have to ask. Mr. Welch is a powerful example of God's glory at work and I felt inspired and encouraged after reading this testimony. Glory to God and thank you for sharing!

4.0 out of 5 stars awesome.... 16 Sept. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Kid friendly version of Save Me From Myself...but I still loved and appreciated it. Its a must for the youth. Check it out, it is a true blessing. Lets give the youth the truth of how it really is. Not a queaky clean version of religion. God loves us all no matter what we have done. Lets give it to them straight. Its time to embrace everybodys "differentness". Buy this and share with everyone. God bless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Washed By the Blood - A book for Young Adults Questioning Life 12 Dec. 2011
By Belle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was purchased because, although I didn't know too much about the band Korn, my son had told me the lead singer had a story he wanted to read about. It's unpretentious and no holds barred. The story is modern, deals with drug use and alcohol abuse - the life of a rock star. Then Brian Welch has an amazing turn around. My son couldn't put the book down until he'd finished it. I'd recommend it to any young adult, searching for answers or just wanting to know about the life of a heavy metal rock star.
