From Outburn Magazine Online:
INTERVIEW WITH JOHN 5 BY KELLEY SIMMS
“There’s a little sinner in all of us,” guitar maestro John 5 explained during a recent interview about the title of his newest solo instrumental album Sinner.
John 5 (real name John William Lowery), the current Rob Zombie guitarist, boasts one of the most impressive and diverse résumés in rock and metal, playing with the likes of Marilyn Manson, David Lee Roth, 2wo, and Meat Loaf. John 5 also has a successful solo career.
On his tenth solo instrumental album, Sinner, he and his band The Creatures—featuring bassist Ian Ross and drummer Logan Miles Nix—perform a wide range of styles that encapsulates everything about his six-string prowess. Its 10 tracks run the gamut of metal, classic rock, funk, EDM, bluegrass, and country and western, which also includes a wonderfully melancholic version of Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.” Plus, a few musical guests, including Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, Butcher Babies’ Carla Harvey, and ex-KISS drummer Peter Criss, add to the album’s overall diversity.
One reply on “John 5 speaks to Outburn Online: “Everyone is a Sinner”.”
Que Pasa John 5? I have been playing guitar since i was 12 years old. I am a rhythm player and you have inspired me to start learning to play lead.
You are the most unique guitarist to ever walk this planet. You are super fantastic. Do you still play at the Vogue Theatre in Indianapolis, Indiana or have you outgrown that venue? I would LOVE to see you play at the Vogue. I your music so much. Thank you for all the wonderful music. Rock on J5!!!
