In this firsthand report by a scientifically trained investigator we learned for the first time of Bishop Pikes's early repression and his continuing involvements with such matters—seemingly against his wishes - as well as the traumatic experiences of direct contact with this dead son, James Jr. And his gradually growing conviction that death is not the end. Most of this material has never been published, not even by the Bishop himself.
Even before sudden death came to James Pike in the desert, psychics all over the world started to come forth with their impressions of the bishop's strange disappearance and violent demise. Hans Holzer here analyzes this material, most of which came from mediums and psychic people working exclusively with him. A challenging picture of death under mysterious circumstances and possibility of foul play emerges from these disturbing psychic reports: Hans Holzer puts them together and presents the psychic evidence, pointing out that things may not have been what they seemed at first.
Finally, in a dramatic confrontation, the author makes contact with the spirit of Bishop himself through the trance mediumship of eminent medium Ethel Johnson Meyers.

In February 2005, more than ten thousand people in Bakersfield, California, watched as Brian "Head" Welch—the former lead guitarist of the controversial rock band Korn—was saved by Jesus Christ. The event set off a media frenzy as observers from around the world sought to understand what led this rock star out of the darkness and into the light.
Now, in this courageous memoir, Head talks for the first time about his shocking embrace of God and the tumultuous decade that led him into the arms of Jesus Christ. Offering a backstage pass to his time with Korn, Head tells the inside story of his years in the band and explains how his rock star lifestyle resulted in an all-consuming addiction to methamphetamines. Writing openly about the tour bus mayhem of Ozzfest and The Family Values tour, he provides a candid look at how the routine of recording, traveling, and partying placed him in a cycle of addiction that he could not break on his own.
Speaking honestly about his addiction, Head details his struggles with the drug that ultimately led him to seek a higher power. Despite his numerous attempts to free himself from meth, nothing—not even the birth of his daughter—could spur him to kick it for good. Here Head addresses how, with the help of God, he emerged from his dangerous lifestyle and found a path that was not only right for his daughter, it was right for him.
Discussing the chaotic end to his time in Korn and how his newfound faith has influenced his relationship with his daughter, his life, and his music, Head describes the challenging but rewarding events of the last two years, exposing the truth about how his moments of doubt and his hardships have only deepened his faith.
Candid, compelling, and inspirational, Save Me from Myself is a rock 'n' roll journey unlike any other.
