Last week John 5 and The Creatures stopped at 210 Kapones for the latest date of their February/March shows. Our friends at axs.com were there and noted that “For a guy who didn’t sing a single word during his hour-long set, John 5’s hands performed all the verbalization necessary Tuesday night at 210 Kapone’s.”

[REVIEW] 95.5 KLOS review The Creatures; “FIVE SHREDS. That’s the bottom line”

John 5 KLOS

Another fantastic review for John 5 and The Creatures, as 95.5 KLOS/Tour Bus Live took in the show at The Coach House in San Capistrano a few days ago.

Speaking of the show, they say of 5 “He’s a true virtuoso.  In another era, he’d probably have been a solo violinist playing some composer’s masterpiece at some powerful King’s court.”

There’s also some pretty cool feedback on The Creatures drummer Rodger Carter and bassist, Ian Ross.
