John 5 is one of modern rock’s most highly revered guitarists. Notorious for his lightning fast playing and enormous versatility, he quickly became a sought after session guitarist scoring high profile gigs at the age of 18 touring with Lita Ford and k.d. lang and in the studio playing with Rob Halford’s industrial metal project Two and David Lee Roth’s The DLR Band album.
John 5 released his debut solo album ‘Vertigo’ in 2004 and its follow up ‘Songs For Sanity’ in 2005 just as he paired up with Rob Zombie for Ozzfest. John went on to play on the majority of Zombie’s 2006 release ‘Educated Horses’ and has been part of Rob Zombie’s band since. Their most recent album ‘The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy’, released earlier this year, saw enormous success on the Billboard charts, hitting #1 across 11 charts, including Current Rock, Top Albums and Top Current Albums and #9 on the Top 200.
Most recently, John 5 combined forces with Rob Zombie, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Clufetos to create a supergroup dubbed The LA Rats and record “I’ve Been Everywhere”, the lead track for upcoming movie “The Ice Road” starring Liam Neeson.
John 5 has been hard at work on his next solo album. More news on that coming later this year.
