[Watch] John 5 shreds bluegrass and more with Loudwire’s Gear Factor

John 5 Loudwire

From Loudwire’s Gear Factor:

Saaaalute! We’re back for another edition of Loudwire’s Gear Factor, powered by Sweetwater, and guitar great John 5 is ready to display some fresh riffage from his new album Invasion that comes from his ever eclectic mind….First up is a song called “Howdy” that falls outside of what you might expect, inspired by one of the ’70s long running musical TV shows.

“It’s kind of my tribute to Hee-Haw and it’s total bluegrass,” says John 5, ready to do some pickin’ and grinnin’ for the camera. John 5 and Squiggy bond of their love of the Roy Clark and Buck Owens-led show, with John 5 stating, “They’re all just totally shredding up there.”

The guitarist then unleashes the heavier, but DJ influenced sounds of “Crank It” to the delight of Squiggy and the viewing audience. “I just enjoy that kind of stuff where if something is hooky, catchy, I’m like why not? It doesn’t matter if it’s rock or anything that’s good, I love it.”

John 5’s debut solo album ‘Vertigo” is 14 years old

John 5 Vertigo

On August 31, 2004, John 5 released his very first solo album to the world: Vertigo.

The album was a mixture of the infamous Drop-D tuning style 5 was already known for, and his love for Bluegrass. The different styling brought a whole new type of fan to John 5’s work as well as enthralling existing fans who appreciated the different styling.

To celebrate, please watch the GOD IS CLOSED official video which was released at the time. Originally sitting at john-5.com, the video, which features “live” performances from John 5 on a number of tracks from Vertigo amongst a number of vintage movie/TV clips, was then available to purchase via the Japanese version of Vertigo.*

*Please excuse the low-quality of the video. We had to track down a copy of it ourselves, and rip it from the CD, to put back up online. 

Enjoy the video and let us know what your thoughts were when you first heard the album in the comments section (click “Read more” to leave a comment >>> (more…)
