Ex-KORN Guitarist BRIAN 'HEAD' WELCH At Christian Music Festival CREATION

On Saturday, July 3, 2010, Kristi Leigh of the Lancaster, Pennsylvania contemporary Christian music radio station WJTL conducted an interview with former KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch and his drummer Dan Johnson at the Creation 2010 Christian music festival in Mt. Union, Pennsylvania. You can now watch the chat below. Also available is performance footage from the festival.

Last year, Head announced that he had chosen his bandmates — Michael Valentine (bass); Scott Von Heldt (guitar); Ralph Patlan (guitars); Brian Ruedy (keyboards, programming) and Dan Johnson (drums). The group toured lightly in 2009, but is stepping up its live activities in 2010.

Head and his band recently spent time in Nashville recording Head's next album with Grammy-nominated producer Rob Graves (RED, PILLAR). The CD is targeted for release later this year on Head's Driven Music Group label (with distribution through Ryko/Warner Music Group).

Welch's debut album, "Save Me From Myself", was released in September 2008 on his Driven Music Group label. The CD sold 7,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 63 on The Billboard 200 chart.

"Save Me From Myself" was produced by Head, who recorded the music off and on for two years in Phoenix, Arizona. It features renowned musicians Tony Levin (PETER GABRIEL, DAVID BOWIE) and Josh Freese (A PERFECT CIRCLE, NINE INCH NAILS), and was mixed by Ralph Patlan and Bob Clearmountain.
