The Revolver Golden Gods 2013 took place at Club Nokia in Los Angeles yesterday (May 2) and John 5 was honored with winning BEST GUITARIST (presented by Epiphone). This is a very high honor for John 5 and a testament to the past decade and more of hard work and dedication, whether it be on his critically acclaimed solo work or with bands such as Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson or on projects with artists as far ranging as Rod Stewart, Sebastian Bach, Ricky Martin, Paul Stanley and Meatloaf (to mention a few).
This was a people’s vote and so the biggest thank you has to go to EVERYONE OF YOU who spent the time voting again and again to ensure this win. John 5 states “this award is a dream come true and made even more special because its you guys that made it happen. I love my work, I love what I get to do everyday and to have the fans work so hard to vote and make this happen, I can’t thank you enough. You guys rock! You’re the best! I dedicate it to Jeff Hanneman of Slayer – a brother we lost too soon.“
