John 5 is the cover artist for Performer Magazines big interview in their Dec/Jan ’19 issue out now.
In the article which is available to purchase here, or read online, John talks about his upcoming Invasion tour with Jared James Nichols, releasing the next Creatures album via a series of unique music videos (see the first video ZOINKS! here), his influences, his work with Rob Zombie, advice for fellow musicians and how his creative process works:
“I’m always honest with myself. So, what that means is…it’s hard to explain. I love to play a certain way, I love to sit on the couch and play guitar. That’s all that I do, and I love playing different styles of music. If something is done really well, I’m into it. So, that’s what keeps me always playing, and keeps me trying to master all these different styles.
So that’s what I do on my records. If I love Chet Atkins, I’m going to put that on my record. It’s a little unorthodox, with all these different kinds of styles, but I love it and it’s honest. And I think that’s what people enjoy about the records; it’s just who I am. I’m not trying to be something I’m not.”
