The lead guitarist of Grammy Award-winning mega-band KoRn tells the incredible story of his life after leaving the hardcore music scene and of God leading him back to the band. Brian Welch made headlines in 2005 when he became a born-again Christian and abandoned heavy metal supergroup KoRn. The follow-up to Brian's 2007 bestseller, Save Me from Myself, With My Eyes Wide Open is the guitarist's account of the brutal, eye-opening eight years he spent as a single dad between leaving KoRn and leading to his controversial decision to rejoin the band in 2013. Welch's very public and disruptive conversion to Christianity not only inspired him to leave a life of unbelievable excess with the band he helped found, but also gave him the strength he needed to overcome addictions to alcohol and methamphetamines.
