Brian Welch Shares a Photo from Tour Bus Hit by Gunfire
Korn’s tour bus was shot last Thursday outside a hotel in Davenport, Iowa. Recently, Brian Welch revealed their tour bus was damaged by gunfire in Davenport on March, 24.
Davenport Police department took a call about gunfire on 25 March around 7:41 a.m for a vehicle that hit overnight. The call came from KORN’s legendary guitarist Brian Welch. Police said that a single bullet shot through the car’s exterior wall. Also, they said that they did not detect any damage except the shot hole. The incident is currently under investigation. Luckily, no one in the car at the suspect shot the car. That’s why no one gets injured.
Korn’s legendary guitarist Brian Welch shared this incident with their fans on Instagram. In his post, he shared the photo of the bullet hole on the bus including the following message: “A couple of days ago in Iowa, we received a bullet to one of our buses in the middle of the night, nobody on the bus thanks God, and the bullet didn’t penetrate the interior of the bus. Well, we’re back in Iowa and hoping for a better welcome tonight Des Moines?! How about bringing some Saturday night energy to a Monday night concert for your boys??!!”
His thoughts about religion:
“I got obsessed with it, just like I was obsessed with the drugs. I believe I did, for sure. And I had to come out of that and find normalcy because there’s nothing worse than a freakin’ irritating religious person just shoving it down your throat. There’s nothing worse than that.”
And also for negative comments:
“When I first became a Christian, I was coming off of methamphetamines, first of all. And I had a massively powerful encounter where God was revealing himself to me. And so those two sides of the coin — coming off of meth and a powerful encounter — I didn’t know how to react and I just went out and I was overzealous, I was obnoxious with my faith, and it took me a while to bring it down.
So that’s all I was trying to say in that video, in that podcast with Robb Flynn.
“I still share my faith, my personal stories of things that I go through in a non-religious way, I feel. try to be very spiritual, but non… Like, ‘This is this, this is how it’s helped me, da da da.’ My manager hit me up and he’s, like, ‘Hey, I think you should address this because I think people are really starting to believe that you renounced it.’ And I was, like, ‘All right. All right. I’ll post about it.'”
