John 5 returns to Talkin’ Rock as he’s currently out on tour with Queensryche. What a bill! I had a chance to see the show last night, and it’s a killer double bill!From Talkin’ Rock With Meltdown: February 14th, 2020
Since the show was in John’s hometown of Detroit, he was nice enough to come by the studio and do this interview in person, with a film crew and his sister and brother-in-law. We cover lots of topics – the new Zombie album, his thoughts on his old boss, David Lee Roth, touring with KISS, a story of a high school teacher telling him he’d never make it and his live Invasion album that’s coming out. How and why did he don the makeup? What happened the first time he met Rob? What were his thoughts at the passing of Neil Peart? As everyone knows, he’s a giant KISS fan, so we talk a little about them, RIFF Fest and more.
