Description

An Out-of-Control Rock Star. An Inescapable Addiction to Drugs. A Miraculous Redemption through Jesus Christ.

You think you've heard this story before but you haven't. Washed by Blood is a look at the dramatic saving power of Jesus Christ unlike any other--one that shows how God looks out for all of us, even those who seem farthest away from his grace.

Brian "Head" Welch was a rock star who thought he had it all. He was the lead guitarist in Korn, one of the biggest and most controversial rock bands on the planet. He lived in a mansion, had millions of dollars in the bank, and legions of fans all over the globe.

He was living the good life, and it should have been perfect. But it was all a lie.

What no one knew was that backstage and away from the crowds, Head was fighting a debilitating addiction to methamphetamines, and that nothing--not even the birth of his daughter--could make him quit for good. He had given up. He was empty inside. He spent his days contemplating suicide convinced that each high would be his last.

And that was when he found God.

Washed by Blood tells the remarkable story of how God's unconditional love freed Head from his addictions and saved him from death. Here Head describes the joys and struggles of his journey to faith, detailing how Jesus has helped him cope with his pain and find the path that's right for both him and his daughter. An account of triumphs, hardships, and the healing power of Jesus, Washed by Blood is an inspirational demonstration that God is always there to save even the most troubled souls.

Back cover copy

In the summer of 2007, Brian 'Head' Welch, the former lead guitarist for the rock band Korn, took the music world by storm with his New York Times bestselling autobiography, Save Me from Myself. Recounting his years in the band, his debilitating addiction to drugs, and his unprecedented salvation through Jesus, Head's story gave strength to a whole generation of Christians through its uplifting tale of real world excess, spiritual reward, and the power of God. Now, Head has written a young adult companion to his bestseller, sharing his inspirational story of rock, addiction, and redemption with Christian teens across the country. Here Head talks openly about his shocking embrace of God, examining the signs that had been leading him to Jesus for his entire life and the circumstances that caused him to miss them. Discussing the difficulties of his childhood and teenage years, Head describes how his struggles with bullies, his inability to fit in, and his substance abuse which plagued him from a young age all combined to take him in the wrong direction. Eventually, he took refuge in the group of friends that would become Korn, a group of high school outcasts and a musical misfits like himself-kids who shared not only his taste in clothes but also his dream to be a rock star. Offering readers a backstage pass to Korn's success, Head speaks honestly about the toll that his fame took on his psyche and his addiction to methamphetamines that drove him to the darkest times of his life. Instead of saving him, fame had failed him, and the ceaseless routine of recording, traveling, and partying only succeeded in placing him in a cycle of addiction that he could not break on his own. 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 explains how with the help of God, he emerged from this dangerous lifestyle and found a path that was not only right for his daughter, it was right for him. Discussing how his newfound faith has influenced his relationship with his daughter, his life, and his music, Head describes the challenging but rewarding events since his conversion, exposing the truth about how the trials of his life have made his faith run deeper with each passing day.
