Washed by Blood: Lessons from My Time with Korn and My Journey to Christ is the second autobiography of the former Korn guitarist, Brian "Head" Welch. It is a "clean" version of Welch's 2007 memoir, Save Me from Myself, re-adapted without the profanity and gory details of the original story for a younger audience. It is a young adult companion to his bestseller, sharing his inspirational story of rock, addiction and redemption with Christian teens across the US. In the book, Welch discusses his consuming addiction to methamphetamines, and how Christ released him from his drug addiction.[3]
