The amazing true story of an out-of-control rock star, his devastating addiction to drugs, and his miraculous redemption through Jesus Christ
In February 2005, more than ten thousand people in Bakersfield, California, watched as Brian “Head” Welch—the former lead guitarist of the controversial rock band Korn—was saved by Jesus Christ. The event set off a media frenzy as observers from around the world sought to understand what led this rock star out of the darkness and into the light.
Now, in this courageous memoir, Head talks for the first time about his shocking embrace of God and the tumultuous decade that led him into the arms of Jesus Christ. Offering a backstage pass to his time with Korn, Head tells the inside story of his years in the band and explains how his rock star lifestyle resulted in an all-consuming addiction to methamphetamine. Writing openly about the tour bus mayhem of Ozzfest and the Family Values Tour, he provides a candid look at how the routine of recording, traveling, and partying placed him in a cycle of addiction that he could not break on his own.
Speaking honestly about his addiction, Head details his struggles with the drug that ultimately led him to seek a higher power. 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 addresses how, with the help of God, he emerged from his dangerous lifestyle and found a path that was not only right for his daughter, it was right for him.
Discussing the chaotic end to his time in Korn and how his newfound faith has influenced his relationship with his daughter, his life, and his music, Head describes the challenging but rewarding events of previous years, exposing the truth about how his moments of doubt and his hardships have only deepened his faith.
Candid, compelling, and inspirational, Save Me from Myself is a rock ’n’ roll journey unlike any other.
“A page-turning rock ’n’ roll journey…An inspirational tale.”—Christianity Today
- Love it! Can't wait to read his next book!
I don't know why I avoided reading this for so long! This is the first book on this site that I've finished in a single day. Was a great experience. There are moments in 'Save Me from Myself' that are quite confronting, but it makes it a very honest autobiography, which I did appreciate. If you're a fan of Head's music and ministry, I'd recommend you buy this without hesitation.
- Get er done, glad you found God!
I agree! Linda, Jesus said " Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgement you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you." You see Linda, you are what I call a false Christian. You believe in Him, but do not follow his teachings.
- Great buy
You're just another hypocritical Christian Linda. Who are you to judge. Are you God? No you're not this man completely changed his life and for you to bash is completely disgusting.

- Offensive Language
Be careful about listening to this book. It has language that is quite offensive. The author was describing conversations he had back before he was saved and how he used to curse a lot. He could have easily just described the conversation and state that he cursed rather than using the actual curse words and cause me to have to listen to them on the audio book. Even after he was saved in the book, he describes how he comes home one day and curses at God and once again, he actually uses the curse word as he screams at God. It was really horrible to listen to. Also to note, while this man tells the story of being saved from drugs and a reckless lifestyle in a famous metal band, he has since returned to that band and is currently making waves in the Christian forums online because of this decision.
