KornA while ago, we learned that Korn were reuniting for at least two shows in Europe with their original guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, who left the band in 2005 to become a born-again Christian. In regards to his semi-reunion with Korn, Head tells Revolver magazine:

“Last year, I ended up at the Carolina Rebellion show. Evanescence played, and I had gone with P.O.D., because I was on tour with them. Korn was playing. I was just going to go say hi to them. I saw Munky, and we talked for a long time. It was the first time we talked in seven years. He’s sober now and everyone’s in a good place. They asked me to jam with them [on the song “Blind”] five minutes before the show. I was like, This was supposed to be the first time I was gonna watch Korn. I was going to go to the soundboard and everything. But I was like, “All right I’ll do it.” And I felt this connection. It was all positive. When I left Korn, there was all this negative crap everywhere. I went home and thought, That was a cool experience. So Munky called me a little bit later about reuniting [for the shows in Germany]. I told him I didn’t think it was the right time, but maybe later. Then I thought about it more and I called him back. I had so much fun jamming I said, “Let’s do it.” It’s a couple shows. I want to connect with the fans. It is the right time. We’re just going slow right now. We’re just gonna do those couple shows and see what happens. Just have a good time.”

Korn’s last studio album, The Path of Totality, came out almost exactly a year ago on Roadrunner Records, and they are currently writing a follow-up album. Their last album with Head on guitar, Take a Look in the Mirror, came out in 2003, two years before his departure.
