The guitarist has played a classic Korn’s track with former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee
When the former Arkansas governor/presidential candidate Mike Huckabee recently met Brian “Head” Welch, he reminded Korn’s guitarist that the last time they met they planned on jamming together. But who would have thought that the two were serious about it.
Welch has performed his band’s classic hit ‘Blind’ on one stage with Huckabee, now a conservative Christian TV host. The song is taken off Korn’s legendary 1994 self-titled debut and actually still opens the band’s shows, as Jonathan Davis yells “Are You Ready?” to kick it off, Consequence Of Sound points out.
As you know, for a few years Welch left Korn on the peak of their popularity, in order to find himself, pursue a religion-rich life and cleanse himself from drug addiction. He then rejoined Korn in 2013 but hasn’t changed his Christian convictions.
Korn guitarist appeared with his daughter Jennea, on Huckabee’s TV show, promoting their new documentary, Loud Krazy Love. Watch Welch and Huckabee performing ‘Blind’ together, helped by backing musicians.
We can expect Welch’s documentary to be released on Blu-ray and DVD very soon, June 18.
And what have Korn been up to, you’ll ask? Busy, busy, busy. Davis & Co. are currently working on a new album, as well as gearing up for a summer North American tour with Alice in Chains. Be sure to get your tickets here.
