Korn’s Brian ‘Head’ Welch Clarifies David Silveria’s ‘Negative’ Remarks
Former Korn drummer David Silveria made headlines recently, explaining that he's apologized to the band's members for his "immature" comments in the past. In his message, he noted that guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch made "negative" remarks about Korn prior to his reunion with the group. Head has chimed in on the situation, claiming he never made those negative declarations.
"I normally wouldn't comment on this, but just want to present facts," wrote Head on Facebook.
Looking back on his conversation with Silveria during the time in question, the guitarist went on, "When David called me, I was in such a good place, I was re-connected to half of the Korn guys, and I never would've said anything negative about them because my life was all about love and positivity, so him saying I told him horrible things about Korn that he can't repeat, is a completely fragmented memory David has."
Speaking to a truth in Silveria's comments, Head did acknowledge that, at that time, he had no intentions on reclaiming his spot in Korn. "What I did say was that I would NEVER go back to Korn. That is true," he said, detailing the event that reversed this fortune, adding, "But as you can see in my movie, Loud Krazy Love, that magical, unplanned meeting with Korn at Carolina Rebellion, changed my entire view of that possibility."
"The wounds with David and a couple of the other Korn members went way deeper than any issues I had in the past with them," continued the guitarist. "I did not plan on going back to Korn or plot to exclude David in anyway when I did return, things just ended up the way they did. I totally love our history with David and wish the very best for him and his family. He was a HUGE part of our beginnings."
Korn's upcoming album, The Nothing, will mark the third album to feature Head since he returned to the group in 2013. The album drops Sept. 13 and can be pre-ordered here.
