"He left KoRn to help himself. He went back to help others. And along the way, he nearly lost everything.
A life-changing spiritual awakening freed Brian “Head” Welch from a stranglehold of drugs and alcohol and prompted him to leave the highly successful nu-metal band KoRn in 2005. What followed was a decade-long trial by fire, from the perils of fathering a teen lost in depression and self-mutilation to the harsh realities of playing solo and surviving the shattering betrayal of a trusted friend. In this intensely inspiring redemption saga, perhaps most inspiring is Brian’s radical decision to rejoin KoRn and reconcile with the tribe of people he once considered family in the metal music scene.
Brian returned to his musical roots with a clear head and a devoted heart. Though his story is wild, hilarious, and deeply poignant, the message is simple: God will love you into the freedom of being yourself, as long as you keep the relationship going and never, ever quit. "
- Brian gave up everything to follow Jesus, but God's slowly been giving him everything back in a way that He can use it for His glory
Picks off pretty much where his first book left off, but there is a lot more maturity in 'With My Eyes Wide Open' than with 'Save Me from Myself' and Brian has grown so much since that time and it's really inspiring to see where he and his daughter are now. I admit I did enjoy his first book a lot more, but still I recommend you get this book and Brian has done an excellent job reading it himself.
- i absolutely love this book
I love it i read this book and it has helped me so much. I read this book in n jail i feel it has saved my life
- Even rock-stars have struggles
This book jumps in close to where the other left off, Brian Welch - ex druggie, former guitarist in the rock group Korn, who has surrendered his heart to Christ. Does that mean everything will be daises? not even close, Brian opens up about his struggles to launch a career, be a solo dad, and deal with friends who put him in financial and legal trouble.
Brian is so honest about his feelings and his humanity. He points out his struggles as his heart just desires to serve Jesus, as well writes out his prayers in the moment.
This novel was so easy going and his humour had me chuckling to myself.
It was well tied up in the end, and I look forward to one day reading Jeenea Welch's novel, then passing it on to my daughter.
