KORN's BRIAN 'HEAD' WELCH: 'We Are All Capable Of Bad Choices Under The Weight Of Heavy Circumstances'

June 11, 2014

According to The Pulse Of Radio, KORN's Brian "Head" Welch has admitted that he isn't much different from AS I LAY DYING's Tim Lambesis — who was sentenced to six years in prison for attempting to hire a hit man to murder his wife. Welch shared a post on Loudwire where he revisited a moment in his past where he was heavily involved in drugs and bared his soul to one of his band's road crew. He asked the crew member — who "had been involved in gangs in the past and at one point was very high up in the chain of command," what it would take to bring harm to his wife and her boyfriend. The crew member replied and said, "Head, if you cross that line, you can never go back."

Welch then said, "What if he was selfish and tried to get a buttload of money out of me and encouraged me to go through with it? What if he encouraged me to murder like the Tim Lambesis situation? What if, in my lowest, weakest moment, all messed up in the head on coke, I got led into agreeing on a down payment for a hit on my wife and her boyfriend? What if the hit man ended up being a felon who needed to give the cops something huge to get himself out of some big trouble he was in? I would be in a very similar situation as Tim Lambesis."

He continued, "I'm not much different than Tim. I don't think any of us are. We are all capable of bad choices under the weight of heavy circumstances. Some can snap in one way and others can snap in other ways. Some people can handle more or less than others, but EVERYONE has a certain breaking point — especially if there's other substances involved."

Welch left KORN back in 2005 in search of himself, his family and God.

He released a solo album back in 2008 and reunited with KORN back in 2012.
