Former Korn Axeman To Work With A Perfect Circle Drummer

Band Photo: Korn (?)

Former KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch has posted the following message on his web site, HeadtoChrist.com:

"I'm in the recording studio in Phoenix. I hooked up with a drummer named Josh Freese [A PERFECT CIRCLE] [in mid-September]. He recorded 23 songs for me while he was here. He's by far the best drummer I've ever witnessed in a recording studio. The guy can play anything. While he was recording, I was still writing about a song a day. So now he has to come back and record another 10 or 20.

"I can't stop writing. I've never written so much music in my life! I am completely speechless when I listen back to these songs. It's so clear that I am only a vessel. Nine months ago, I could barely piece one song together.

"I'm going in to record my guitars tomorrow. It should be early 2006 when [my solo album] comes out. Sorry I can't answer all your questions right now. Just trust that I will deliver the most intense music you've ever heard in your life."

You people sound like EMO 'S saying that korn sucks, and it does so I think that I'm EMO or maybe I'm not. The point is that korn sucks.

Kind of an odd pairing.....

Josh Freese is something around 4 times the musician that Head is......

Can't blame Freese though, it'll be another 2-3 years before he's with APC again with Tool going full blast right now.....Gotta cover the bills somehow.

I'm actually semi excited to see what Head can come up with. If he's going to put out some really heavy sh** maybe we will get something like Demon Hunter. We could only be so lucky. Everyone get off his back and let him be who he wants to be.

I'm curious too. With Josh Freese and Head laying down some guitar parts....sounds good so far. Althought I am not too crazy about the whole Christian thing....at least he's being true to himself despite what we all think about his being a "born again Christian". Maybe some cool metal music will come out of it.

the only problem I have read about so far is that in most of his interviews and site postings, he keeps saying that what he is working on is not "guitar-based", about the only thing that was is the "tribute" he did for Dime. (my opinion: lousy tribute)
don't know if we should be looking forward to anything he is putting out considering that

So I suppose that there is some truth to the fact that there is a new band called "Borne" that features Brain Welch on guitars, Fuzz (formerly of Disturbed) on bass, Josh Freeze (A Perfect Circle) and Marilyn Manson on vocals. C'mon, this is so frickin' ridiculous. Head's got a lot more studying of the so-called Word before he can save the likes of Marilyn and people who follow Maynard James Keenan and David Drainman. I think everybody should go back to their bands now and I'll "SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE." (Dec. 6)

aaaa,cute.......youre so pretty when your angry. Let us all repent, my fellow korn fans. LordAgony has spoken and we shall obey.....haha. He thinks intimidation is a smart way to prove his overwhelming intellegence, f*ck...did i just say something that could be so stupid?...and the almighty says we are retarded....how retarded must one be to prove your intellegence by claiming some one else is retarded, afterall, it takes one to know one fool. Blasphemy wouldn't be the best way to prove your point then would it...(you could go look up that biggy wiggy wordy in the dictionary ). i must give you credit for the absolute effort you put into the shear amount of adjectives you put in front of every word. That probably takes up a sh*tload of your time doesn't it? But its probably all in a days work for someone that has nothing better to do in life than posting playlists and claiming his preference is superior to that of a mentally retarded person. sh** dude, you set the bar low for yourself huh. I mean...thanking people to understand your emaciated, puny text ( you'll find that one in the dictionary too). Dont start something youll most certainly loose fool and if you get your allmighty language skill duckies all in a row, try again please.......i dare you. After i have read your pathetic ( ...think now....you can do it! go to the page with all the p's on it...) secretion of words, and you have proven my point to all these people...only then will i even consider to waste time and reply.....and i need to thank you.....hehe....your text was quite humorous, in fact....I ALMOST p***ed MYSELF YOU FOOL......(sigh)....cute. KoRn Rocks......FULL STOP

666, what's wrong with a wanker? I think we should only be here if we are Freaks (whether
on a leash or not) since this is about Head & Korn and their fans.
"I'm a f@ggot... I'm not a f@ggot... I'm a f@ggot... I'm not a f@ggot... I'm a f@ggot... I'm not a f@ggot..." However, if you got something to hide... you can tell us, most of us are mature enough to listen. "I'm cumming, I'm cumming, I'm cumming, I'm cumming on you!!!"

"That's why I will never change..." It doesn't matter if Jon, James, Reg, Dave or Brian is gay or not. All I care about is that Korn rocks. They are the innovators of today and some of you can't handle that. Okay, so Head has decided to go left-wing... if/when he returns maybe we'll accept him with open arms/maybe not. We'll have to see on the other side. Take A Look In The Mirror guys... we're all there, it's just some of us are a bit more comfortable than others. OMG Well, today is my 32nd b'day and "I've got no place to hide which I like..."
