The amazing true story of an out-of-control rock star, his devastating addiction to drugs, and his miraculous redemption through Jesus Christ.
In February 2005, more than ten thousand people in Bakersfield, California, watched as Brian "Head" Welch-the former lead guitarist of the controversial rock band Korn-was saved by Jesus Christ. The event set off a media frenzy as observers from around the world sought to understand what led this rock star out of the darkness and into the light.
Please Note: Washed by Blood is a reprint of Save Me from Myself, Brian's earlier memoir. New content includes discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Additionally, Washed by Blood does not contain a section of color photographs, like Save Me from Myself.

Review 1 for Washed by Blood: Lessons from My Time with Korn and My Journey to Christ
Date:April 19, 2012
I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about how this book would read and what he would say. I was extremely blessed by this book. He humbly admits his failures, his struggles and his victories. He shows that coming out of the darkness of sin, you stumble but you get back up. I love that he does not credit one person or ministry with his faith. God used multiple ministries to speak to him. When I got done all I could think was righteous. For those that have kids, teenagers can definitely read this but maybe not middle school kids, depending on their maturity. Since it deals with the topics of drugs, alcohol, partying and sex.

GOOD FOR A SPECIFIC GENERATION AND FANS OF KORN
Date:July 1, 2011
IF YOU ARE IN YOUR TEENS, TWENTIES, OR HAVE EVER FOLLOWED THE BAND KORN, THEN THIS BOOK WILL HAVE A VERY POSITIVE IMPACT ON YOU. I FEEL THAT YOU MUST BE ABLE TO RELATE TO "HEAD" TO REALLY UNDERSTAND AND FEEL WHAT HE DISCUSSES IN THIS BOOK. THIS IS WELL WORTH THE READ FOR ANY ROCK MUSIC FAN. YOU CAN PERSONALLY FEEL THE EMOTIONS AS HE IS WALKING YOU THROUGH HIS LIFE; FROM CHILDHOOD UNTIL HIS REBIRTH. IT IS AMAZING THE TRANSFORMATION THAT GOD WILL DO IF WE ALLOW HIM TO WORK IN US! THE KEY IS ACCEPTING JESUS CHRIST AND HAVING FAITH IN OUR HEAVENLY FATHER. BEING "SICK AND TIRED OF BEING SICK AND TIRED" WILL HAVE YOU ON YOUR KNEES ACCEPTING GOD, AND THIS BOOK/STORY IS PROOF. I ASSURE ANYONE WHO HAS FOLLOWED THE BAND KORN, OR HAS HAD SOME SORT OF ADDICTION OR TRAUMA IN YOUR LIFE, THAT YOU WILL BE MOVED AND MAYBE EVEN ACCEPT GOD AS YOU HEAVENLY FATHER AND JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR.

Review 3 for Washed by Blood: Lessons from My Time with Korn and My Journey to Christ
Date:April 3, 2009
I ordered this after reading "Head's" other book, not realizing it has the same content. This one is broken down into smaller sections, doesn't have the photographs, but adds questions for discussion. The content was extremely enlightening and could be a great tool especially for reaching young people and KORN fans.

Review 4 for Washed by Blood: Lessons from My Time with Korn and My Journey to Christ
Date:January 8, 2009
I purchased this book for my son... who was a big Korn fan for Christmas. He has read the book, and says that it has inspired him so much. That he is looking for a church to attend in his new resiendence in AL. I believe that we should lift up our children to the lord, re-introduce them to God in anyway possible.
