HAUNTING MEMORIES: JOHN5 AND PIGGY D
Piggy D. plays bass for Rob Zombie, as well as having his own great solo project and work with the band Black Foxx. He’s also a graphic designer and artist, having designed the cover for a Lita Ford album, among others. His debut solo album, The Evacuation Plan, is worth checking out, and songs like “Locust Dance” and “God Save the Queen Bee” are killer. You’ll be able to hear and see his bass playing prowess on his current tour with Rob Zombie.
John Lowery was given the nickname John 5 the day he joined Marilyn Manson’s band. A versatile session guitarist known for his speed as well as his keen goth fashion sense (imagine Brandon Lee in The Crow), after moving to L.A. at 18 he scored high-profile gigs touring with Lita Ford and k.d. lang based on his work scoring soundtracks and commercials with producer Bob Marlette.

For months John 5 fans have been anticipating the new album God Told Me To. We can now reveal not only the release date but the fantastic cover art, which features a painting of John 5 by Rob Zombie.
God Told Me To, which is the sixth solo album from the guitarist, will be released on April 10 2012.
John 5 states the album will be “half acoustic and half metal and feature music that will blow you away”. He has already wetted the fans appetite by releasing four digital singles from the album: Beat It, Welcome to Violence, Noche Acosador and The Castle.
As well as the stunning cover art by Rob Zombie, art from the solo singles will also feature within the album. The single covers were created by Piggy D and Emma (J5′s web manager) from Nineteen76-Designs.
As mentioned last week, John 5 and other members of Rob Zombie (Piggy D and Ginger Fish) would be joining Henry Rollins, Corey Taylor and Dave Navarro (amongst others) for a benefit concert in Hollywood’s Avalon Theater, raising awareness and money for a charity called ‘Drop in the Bucket’.
The charity raises money to ensure children across the world have access to clean water – as their motto says “clean water is a human right”.
That concert took place last night and was a very successful event. A number of videos are now available to watch from last nights event. Check them out below:
