Brian “Head” Welch is a founding member of the multi-platinum band KoRn and frontman of rock band Love and Death. Brian is the New York Times best-selling author of “Save Me From Myself” and “With My Eyes Wide Open.”


Born June 19, 1970, Head grew up in Bakersfield, California. He found his calling at age eleven when he picked up his first guitar. Voracious practicing and a steady diet of hard rock classics filled in the ensuing years, and shortly after high school, he co-founded a metal band named KoRn. The band soon became a Grammy award-winning, multi-platinum force that shot to the top tier of the rock world and dominated the new metal movement of the late Nineties.

Korn’s 1998 “Follow the Leader” album cemented the band as rock titans when they debuted at number one on the Billboard charts, fighting off new releases from mainstream heavyweights Dr. Dre and Celine Dion.


For his efforts with KoRn, Head received six Grammy nominations, winning two, while selling some 40 million records worldwide. Head continues to create explosive music, pursue his wide-ranging philanthropic missions and to strive to be the best father he can be for his beloved daughter.


Head has won multiple GRAMMY and MTV Music awards and continues to make music and tour the world with KoRn.
