Book Synopsis

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 methamphetamines. 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 the last two 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.

    Extremely well written! I am absolutely blown away. While I do think some early parts of the book could have been glossed over, ultimately it isn't up to me to judge. This book has caused me to do a LOT of soul searching within my own self.
  • Absolutely amazing!!

    By Deevala
    When I first bought the book, I never thought it would have the impact it did on me. Here lately I have gone through a season of pain. As Brian said, it's my time to carry my cross. I can't explain how many times I got goosebumps or started crying while reading this book. No matter what you're going through or how faithful you are, this book will rock your socks off and will effect you in one way or another I can guarantee that. Thank you for such an amazing testimony, Brian, and thank you for having the courage to share with others. Truly a blessing like none other. God bless!!
  • This book has changed me

    By Soldieraja
    Brian, after reading your book I felt as if I was seeing my life through your eyes. I have been in the army for 5 years now and done two combat tours and seen things no one showed ever have to see or go through. I have also gone through financial struggle, relationship struggles, family struggles, you name it. I turned to alcohol as my answer and gave up all faith in God and blamed him for my problems when I should have been blaming myself for not keeping my faith and trusting in him. Your book inspired me no matter how hard life can be or get to always trust in God can keep the faith. God is very much alive in me today and will continue to grow in my heart and I also gave up alcohol and an sober. Thank you again so much from the bottom of my heart. May God continue to work through and bless you and your family.

  • Inspiring and heartfelt

    By hardcordell
    I started reading this book, and didn't stop until I finished it. I must have cried through at least half of this book, because it hit so close to home with me. It really opened my heart, and made me want to walk that much closer with Christ cause Brian showed the world that even the hardest of men can open theirselves up to receive the glory of god, and be changed forever. Thank you Brian for standing up for all of us metal heads, and showing everyone that Christ is real, and does not judge us by our music preference,fame, money,or our mistakes, but is there for us through every second of our life, whispering in our hearts, and making a better light of this very short life on earth, trying to teach us to walk close to him, and prepare us for an everlasting eternity with him in the after! I recommend this book to anyone in need of the courage to commit. LOVE AND DEATH RULES! Much love.... Gary C.
  • Wow!

    By rayrayj1
    So I read this book in 3 days flat. I couldn't wait for the quiet times when I would drop everything and just read. I love your real, raw, truthful descriptions of your obstacles to trusting in God to deliver you from all of your pain. I am right in the middle of letting things go from my past and I can relate to the "basket case" description you used to describe your emotional roller coasters. That's me! Every time I read how you would start crying because of the pain you still had or because of the Love Christ has for you, I cried too. Thank you for truly ministering to me brother, you have no idea how much I relate to you, yet I didn't have the drug problems or fame you did/do. I'm just a regular guy who has been hurting my whole life, until now. Thank you.

  • Save Me From Myself

    By LollyBoRose
    Encouraging, humbling,exciting account of one man's dramatic rescue. Follow Brian's traversing from bondage to freedom when he is hotly pursued and redeemed by his Lord. Be reminded afresh how amazing our Savior's love for us is. Be encouraged by His relentless pursuit of His own. I rejoiced to read this book and will recommend it without reservation. - Shannon Rose
