Can The Former Lead Guitarist Of Korn Bring 50 Cent To Jesus?

headfiddy 500x253 Can The Former Lead Guitarist Of Korn Bring 50 Cent To Jesus?Here is a quote from former KoRn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, he of the books about his post-KoRN conversion to Christianity and the tours with other religiously nu-metallic artists like Flyleaf, talking about how during a speed-fueled Bible binge one day, he passed a note to 50 Cent—via their mutual jeweler???—about being saved by Jesus:

JM: I heard that you began an orphanage out in India. What inspired you to start that?


Brian: When I read a scripture, I was so strung out on drugs. Like coming off of them, you know? It was like, I saw scripture and be, like… I’d go run and try to do it, and feed the poor. I was like, “I’m going to India to feed the poor!” You know, leave everything. I sold my house and we left town. [laughs] Like, I was going crazy, but it was funny because I showing God that I wasn’t afraid to obey. It was wacky, but it was still fun. I felt like He told me to go to 50 Cent and write a letter to him, and tell him Jesus wants to save him, too. I was like, “Alright, God!” and I went and found his jeweler. I bought some diamonds off of him and I gave him a note and he was like, “I’m gonna go see 50 in, like, three days.” ‘Cause they’re developing a business. I go, “Give him this note.” It was a long letter saying Jesus wants to save him. [laughs]


JM: [laughs] Did you get a response back from that?


Brian: Nah. But thank you Lord, that I was out of my mind and wacky, and coming off Speed. Thank you for making me sane again.



Oh, to have been a fly on the wall in that jewelry shop when that particular missive was passed along. Although… what if 50 reads this, scratches his head, and says, “hey wait a second… What note???” I mean, it’s a long way down from the “Candy Shop” to the couch next to a gently mocking Kathie Lee, you know. This interview might result in Vitamin Water being turned into wine, people!

(More on the shenanigans they engage in, and their shady owner, is at ASSME.) But this is actually from a direct interview, so no worries.]
