Brian "Head" Welch Clarifies Negative Comments Made by Ex-Korn Drummer David Silveria

July 31, 2019

Former Korn drummer David Silveria began to make the news after he issued an apology for "immature" and "wrong and mean" comments he made about his bandmates. He says he came to the conclusion after posting a fictional article to his Instagram which read, "Korn Fans Have Some Demands: Bring Back David And Make Korn Great Again".

Geez. You guys are too much!!! Respect!

As part of his apology, Silveria notes that guitarist Brian "Head" Welch had also made some negative comments about the band during his temporary departure.

Upon hearing of his name used in Silveria's comments, Welch took to his social media to clarify that he had never said anything negative about Korn during his absence. "I normally wouldn't comment on this, but just want to present facts," says Welch. "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."

Welch does affirm that the part where he told Silveria that he would never return to Korn was true, expressing zero interest in rejoining the band. "What I did say was that I would NEVER go back to Korn. That is true. 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."

Welch ended his post saying, "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. 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."
