Just as everyone knows the rock star life can offer riches and pampering, we're all acquainted with the story of the fall that often follows the whirlwind of excess and indulgence.
Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch learned that lesson after his addiction to alcohol and drugs, particularly meth amphetamines, resulted in his departure from the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning metal band in 2005. Battling his demons as well as needing to stay sober as a young single father, Welch found faith and strength first in his conversion to Christianity, and then by strongly embracing his responsibility to his daughter Jennea, who struggled with depression, anger, and suicidal impulses during her formative years.
The new documentary Loud Krazy Love, which premieres on Showtime Friday (Dec. 14) at 10 p.m. ET, chronicles the odyssey of father and daughter as they fiercely battle to maintain their bond even as their lives diverge at times. Over the course of the film, Brian’s life takes many bad turns as he tackles addiction, business failures and a struggling solo career. Jennea, meanwhile, coped with isolation from her peers and a developing penchant for self-harm that eventually lead her to a Christian boarding school called Awakening Youth Academy in Indiana.
