John 5: ‘The meaning of life is to do what you love and be happy’

John 5 is out on tour right now with Rob Zombie on the Twins of Evil tour.  The show is currently half way through the USA leg and will go to Europe in late November.  In the meantime, the Examiner chatted to John 5 on the phone during some down time about the music that influenced him, the work he does and working on an acoustic album with Dave Lee Roth.

John 5: “The meaning of life is to do what you love and be happy” by Alison Richter

John 5 is late. Not tardy, late. Really late — as in 40 minutes late — but when he finally calls, he’s genuinely apologetic about the delay. Interviews, a television taping, a meet-and-greet — it’s been one of those days. Backstage in a very noisy arena, he’s moments away from soundcheck and the clock is ticking. So we begin.

We all ask you the same questions, over and over. How do you keep interviews from becoming the department of redundancy department, certainly for yourself?

I think that not everybody reads the same interviews, so people want to know certain questions. That’s why they’re asked over and over, because people want to know these things and not all the same people are going to read it, so I think it’s fair that if somebody says, “Where did you first learn to play guitar,” not everybody knows that who is reading the interview.

John 5: ‘I don’t write lyrics at all….I’d just write about boobs and guitars

It’s tour time and John 5 is on the road for a few months with Rob Zombie again. They are joined by his former boss and band mate Marilyn Manson who is co-headlining as part of the Twins of Evil tour (US and Europe).  Marqueemag.com caught up with John 5 to talk about a number of different topics.  Enjoy the interview.

Marilyn Manson Alumni Join Rob Zombie on Twins of Evil Tour by Lindsay Allen

Sometimes it takes a while for even the most obvious of pairings to occur. But often, that anticipation makes a coupling that much more exciting. So when Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson announced that they would tour together as the Twins of Evil, no one said “No fucking way” because they couldn’t believe it, they said “No fucking way” because no one could believe it took so long for it to happen.

John 5 talks to Wrestling with Pop Culture about the tour, the next Zombie album and other upcoming projects

Check out this new interview with John 5 conducted by Wrestling with Pop Culture  just before the start of the Twins of Evil tour.

John 5 shreds with Rob Zombie on the Twins of Evil tour by Jonathan Williams

Though he received his first big jolt of recognition when he became Marilyn Manson‘s guitarist in 1998, for the past seven years John 5‘s shredding skills have been utilized as part of Rob Zombie‘s band. So when Manson and Zombie take to the stage tonight at theDesert Uprising festival in Phoenix for the first night of the Twins of Evil tour, it will be especially exciting for 5 given his history with both bands. Having released his latest solo CD God Told Me To a few months ago, 5 also contributed some guitar work for Zombie’s recent remix albumMondo Sex Head. Before taking the stage for the Twins of Evil tour, 5 talks to Wrestling with Pop Culture about the tour, the next Zombie album and other upcoming projects. (more…)

Rob Zombie’s Guitarist John 5 Has a Motto: “More is More” By Lauren Wise

“I love Phoenix,” Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 says excitedly. “Rob [Zombie] and the other guys in the band, they like the colder weather, but for some reason I love the really hot weather.”

He pauses, then anxiously asks, “It should be really warm there still when I’m there in September, right?”

“Yeah, it doesn’t really start cooling down until mid-or late October, honestly,” I offer. “You should be good.” (more…)

CMM: Who was the guitarist that made you want to play guitar and why guitar? 
J5:I used to watch a lot of tv back in the day so I’d say it was the Monkees, the TV show “Hee Haw” and I just really liked the guitar and I was very taken back by that so I think that’s what made me want to start playing guitar first, but my first guitar heros were Ace Frehley, Jimi Hendrix, and Eddie Van Halen, they took it to the next level for me.
