READ THE LATEST NEWS FROM THE OFFICIAL JOHN 5 WEBSITE

[Interview] John 5 talks to the Huffington Post: “I appreciate and love music so much. This album is really who I am”.

One of the last dates on the Season of the Witch tour saw John 5 returning to his home state of Michigan. Ahead of that show he had a chat with the Huffington Post.

As much as his collaborations have varied, his own solo material runs the gamut even more displaying influences of everything from heavy metal and hard rock all the way to country and bluegrass.

Recently, John 5 released his solo project Season of the Witch, an album he rolled out in an interesting fashion by releasing music videos first before any of the actual music. I got to chat with John 5 recently about growing up in Michigan, why he took that route releasing his music, and the differences in making his own music compared writing for others.”

[Interview] “Just a man and his guitar”: John 5 talks to Fangoria

John 5 interview Fangoria

The Season of the Witch tour came to an end just under a week ago but during that time, John 5 chatted to the legendary Fangoria.

From Fangoria:

Known for his dark persona and wicked riffs on stage, off-stage the well-spoken and passionate artist is more than just a man in monster make-up. Eclectic in his love of music, John 5 has taken instrumental story telling to an entirely new level in SEASON OF THE WITCH. Tracks such as HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER, HERE’S TO THE CRAZY ONES, and the hypnotic BEHIND THE NUT LOVE are just three examples of the diversity and talent it took in creating this album. Now, as the tour comes to a close and John 5 prepares to hit the road with Zombie, Fango was lucky enough to be invited to one of his performances.

More than happy to sit down and talk shop, John 5 opened up to Fango and gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the concert and why he does what he does.

We talked about his early days and what shaped his love for playing intimate venues, his recent night out with Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley of KISS, guitarists that he’s jammed with and lots more. Having a son in his early teens like me I had to get his take on Robert Trujillo’s 12 year old son, Tye, touring with Korn through South America. We talked about the use of social media, nerves on stage and his thoughts on the closing of Joe Louis arena.”

John 5 is a guitar player’s guitarist, replete with all the awe-inspiring shreddology of modern players such as Steve Vai, Marty Friedman and Yngwie Malmsteen. All of his influences shine thru on Season of the Witch, and portrayed by John 5 and the Creatures with masterful skill.
