Brian “Head” Welch
Brian Phillip Welch (born June 19, 1970), better known as Head, is an American musician best known as the former guitarist and co-founder of the nu metal band Korn and his solo project Love and Death. “Along with fellow Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer, Welch helped patent Korn’s distinctive sound, a mix of sirenlike shards of dissonant guitar that mimicked a turntablist’s various effects and rumbling down-tuned riffing that defined the nu metal aesthetic beginning in the mid-’90s.” After becoming a Christian, Welch left the band in 2005 to focus on life as a father and to pursue his own solo career. He released his debut Christian album, Save Me from Myself, in 2008.
Welch and Munky are ranked at No. 26 of Guitar World’s 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Guitarists of All Time.
