Anne Erickson

Hey, guys! I grew up listening to classical music, opera and musical theater, but somewhere along the way, discovered rock and metal. Hearing bands like Nirvana, A Perfect Circle, AFI, RED and Seether opened up a new world to me, and I’ve worked in the music business ever since. I graduated with a Master of Arts Degree in Theatre from Michigan State University and started working as a reporter for Gannett Michigan. I also scored my first radio job on an alternative station in Michigan. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Billy Corgan, Slash, Zakk Wylde, Metallica's Kirk Hammett and many more. Fun fact: I don’t like going to the movies. I can't sit still that long! Thanks for listening, and God bless!

Former Korn Guitarist Teaming Up with RED’s Jason Rauch on New Album

Brian “Head” Welch came into fame as the guitar leader of alternative metal band Korn-- a role that earned him six Grammy nominations and album sales in the tens of millions. That all came to a screeching halt in 2005, though, when Welch’s addiction to crystal meth got the best of him, and he stepped away from Korn -- permanently -- to regain control of his life and connect with a Higher Power.

Now, Welsh is knee-deep in his solo project, and he's teaming up with RED songwriter and former guitarist Jason Rauch on some upcoming tracks.
