Rock Star

Perhaps, no people are more idolized in modern society than rock stars, but the “freedom”, fame and money does not ultimately satisfy the heart and soul of a man. Jesus came to seek and save the lost.

If there was ever anyone that seemed most unlikely to become a Christ follower, it would be Brian “Head” Welch from Korn. Here is Brian’s story.



One of the most iconic bands of the 1970’s was Kansas. Kerry Livgren was a rock star and a seeker, and he was seeking everywhere but in Christianity. Songs like Carry on My Wayward Son and Dust in the Wind are examples of the Kerry’s seeking heart before he had an encounter with God and found what (Who) he was seeking. He is his story 20+ years later.



Alice Cooper is another unlikely Christian. He grew up in the church. His father was a pastor, but he became a prodigal son and “Rock’s ultimate villain”. Many years later, this his story.



Bono and UR are the stadium band gods, but Bono knows who God is. God informs his life. Here he is in a classic interview about what he believes and examples of U2 songs that are informed by faith.



Ex-Black Sabbath singer, Jeff Fenholt, lived a life far from God and was suffering panic attacks that no one knew about when an ex-mafia construction worker who had become a Christian asked to pray for him as he was working inside his home.



Barry McGuire who sang the 60’s rock anthem, Eve of Destruction, was an original hippie. It led him to fame and fortune as a member of the New Christy Minstrels, but there was no fulfillment in it. So, after the typical drug induced trip, he took a different turn and there found what he was looking for.
