Stronger: Forty Days of Metal and Spirituality
This 40-Day devotional from Brian “Head” Welch, former lead guitarist of Korn and the New York Times bestselling author of Save Me From Myself, is an intimate tour through the Bible passages that have meant the most to him on his trying journey from substance abuse to salvation. Save Me From Myself, Welch’s self-effacing story his against addiction and his reawakening to divine love, has made the metal band icon into a hero of Christian rock. Uncompromisingly honest about his demons, and equally fervent about his faith, Head and his impassioned devotional offer a uniquely voiced guiding light perfect for young Christians and rock music fans everywhere.

lost a thousand bucks. Anyway, when we were talking about the proposed bet
that night, Lars Ulrich, Metallica's drummer, came into the dressing room and
jumped into conversation with us. He said Metallica was getting ready to take off

No joke: news headlines flashed in my mind, “Head gives fellow rock star
cocaine and causes him to lose ability to talk.” That night had started out like a
surreal dream coming true, but it turned into a dark, gloomy dungeon. As I looked
around the room at some of the top players in metal music, I started to think about
where I was in life. I thought to myself, “Look at all of us. We're all on top of the
music business, riding around in the best tour buses and flying in 8 brian ”head“
