Brian 'Head' Welch
One of modern rock music's biggest talking points of 2013 is the status of Brian 'Head' Welch within his former band Korn. After surprising the 2012 Carolina Rebellion Festival by joining the band onstage for a performance of 'Blind,' Welch is now set to play several shows with Korn in 2013, including high profile gigs at Rock on the Range in Ohio and the Rock Im Park and Rock Am Ring fests in Germany.
Former Korn guitarist and current Love & Death frontman Brian 'Head' Welch has slowly been working his way back into the Korn camp ever since his surprise appearance at the 2012 Carolina Rebellion Festival, where Welch performed 'Blind' with the rest of Korn. Now, with Head set to join Korn at Rock on the Range in Ohio and several European dates this year, the possibility of Welch's permanent return to Korn is becoming more and more real.
Korn's former guitarist, Brian 'Head' Welch, is spending more and more time with his one-time bandmates. After saying yes to joining the band for shows overseas, it was announced earlier this week that Welch would be playing with Korn at the upcoming Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio.
Guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch is keeping busy with both his current and former bands. His current group Love and Death return next week with the new album, 'Between Here & Lost,' but fans can check the disc out early via a preview stream. Plus, it appears Welch is expanding his temporary reunion with Korn to include their full run of European dates.
Korn are set to reunite with their founding guitar player Brian 'Head' Welch for two German festival gigs in 2013, and perhaps nobody is more stoked about the get-together than Welch. The metal six-stringer rocked out with Korn onstage for the track 'Blind' last May at the Carolina Rebellion festival in Rockingham, N.C., and he says jamming with Korn just felt right.
It’s no secret many Korn fans were bummed when Brian ‘Head’ Welch left the band, but he is set to reunite with the group for a couple of shows in 2013 after playing a one-off gig at the Carolina Rebellion festival this past year. 'Head' is set to join Korn for their dates at next year’s German rock festivals Rock am Ring and Rock im Park. The gigs will be his first full sets with the band since 2004.
