Head names 'wacky' 4th book

Returned Korn guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch has revealed the working title of his fourth book as With My Eyes Open.

And he says it will focus on his life from 2005, when he quit the band to embrace spirituality, until his full-time return to the fold last year.

Head tells Pittsburgh Music Magazine: “It’s crazy. I found spirituality and I did have encounters with Christ – but I was around some wacky people too. I want through some crazy studs like court cases, lawsuits. So I’m writing about that.”

He’s hoping to take a six-month break after Korn complete their touring plans in the autumn, saying: “I just think it’s good to pull back a little bit then come back out – but we’ll see.”

And he’s also aiming to get back to work on side-project Love & Death. “I’d love to finish an album or at least get really far in, you know. Once you get the ideas I can just be working on the bus and it can come together pretty quick.”

Reacting to the jailing of As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis for trying to have his wife killed, Head recently told of the moment when he attempted a similar move.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
