John 5 and Rob Zombie to be interviewed for ‘Hired Gun’ documentary

John 5 Rob Zombie Hired Gun

A new documentary called “Hired Gun” is currently in post production.  “Hired Gun is a compelling film about a unique fraternity of musicians that possess uncommon musical ability, but who made a conscious decision to make a living playing music in relative obscurity. Occasionally, one of them makes the big time and becomes a star in their own right.”

For the documentary, John 5 – who has worked with Dave Lee Roth, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Meatloaf, Rod Stewart – to name but a few – will be interviewed – along with friend and front-man Rob Zombie (still from interview footage above) .

You can find out more about the documentary here: http://www.hiredgundoc.com

John 5 delivers some sound advice; “Just practice and sometimes opportunity will show up and there ya go.”
