Eyes Wide Open Review

He left KoRn to help himself. He went back to help others. And along the way, he nearly lost everything.

A life-changing spiritual awakening freed Brian “Head” Welch from a stranglehold of drugs and alcohol and prompted him to leave the highly successful nu-metal band KoRn in 2005. What followed was a decade-long trial by fire, from the perils of fathering a teen lost in depression and self-mutilation to the harsh realities of playing solo and surviving the shattering betrayal of a trusted friend. In this intensely inspiring redemption saga, perhaps most inspiring is Brian’s radical decision to rejoin KoRn and reconcile with the tribe of people he once considered family in the metal music scene.

Brian returned to his musical roots with a clear head and a devoted heart. Though his story is wild, hilarious, and deeply poignant, the message is simple: God will love you into the freedom of being yourself, as long as you keep the relationship going and never, ever quit.

What do I love about this book? I love that he is  Brutally honest, he is a very hardworking single dad & he is still rocking and rolling’ his faith for God! He is not ashamed of his faith, he has proclaimed his belief in front of thousands, has witnessed miracles & loves to pray for everyone( even fans before and after concerts). Brian “Head” Welch talks about his life after he left KoRn, became a Christian, moved to Arizona to restart his life with his daughter, be accused of fraud , hit rock bottom be filing bankruptcy and more! This book shares the deep hallows of his soul, his pain & his joys. It is a must read  for those that love to read the triumphs of those who have overcome obstacles & for everyone else in between. I absolutely love this book & recommend it for anyone who has had a rough road, or those who don't understand those who have had a rough road. Brian does get VERY preachy at the end on the book, but It was so nice to read it in my opinion. KoRn was one of my all time favorite bands before I became a christian and was struggling myself, so this book really hit a spot in my heart! 
I received this book free in exchange I post my honest opinions.
