"With My Eyes Wide Open" by Brian "Head" Welch

Heartbreaking-ly beautiful, brutally honest and tragically magical, Brian "Head" Welch of KoRn writes of coming home to his band and raising his daughter after his conversion to Christianity in his book, "With My Eyes Wide Open".  Don't get it twisted though, he isn't writing about warm fuzzy feelings and drinking pumpkin spice lattes while reading Joel Osteen books. He is writing about being tested by issues, his daughter's struggle with depression and dealing with a friend's betrayal.  And through it all, he never loses faith. He cries out constantly to the Lord and in his humbleness and simplicity, this book is like a prayer. I'm not a fan of KoRn, but after reading this book, I will say that I am a fan of Brian "Head" Welch. A great read, raw and poignant, and I must confess, I shed more than a few tears.
