Superfan John 5, visits the Brady House; “Cindy said they’ve adopted me as the ‘Bad Brady.’”

John 5 The Brady House

From Variety:

Here’s the story of a rock star obsessed with the Bradys.

No kidding. Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 got to live out a childhood fantasy when he attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly revealed Brady Bunch house on HGTV’s “A Very Brady Renovation.”

John 5, who has collaborated with a diverse array of musicians — from David Lee Roth to Ricky Martin to Steve Perry — had an “in” for the invite-only unveiling: Susan Olsen, who played Cindy Brady in “The Brady Bunch,” was featured in the video for the guitarist’s song “Zoinks!” from his new album, “Invasion.”

Says John 5: “Being at ‘The Brady Bunch’ house was probably the strangest experience of my life because when they let me in the house, I knew where everything was — where the kitchen was, where are the bedrooms were, where Alice’s room was. I knew my way around the whole house like I’ve lived there for 40 years. Cindy said they’ve adopted me as the ‘Bad Brady.’”

John 5 and The Creatures announce first ever Australian tour dates in 2020.

John 5 and The Creatures Jared James Nichols Australia 2020

JOHN 5 is heading to Australia, for his first ever solo shows here, to shred our nation to pieces thanks to Silverback Touring. Accompanying him is American blues-rock guitarist and singer JARED JAMES NICHOLS who is rated as one of the hottest players on the scene, also making his debut appearance in Australia.

Comments John “I am so excited that I’m coming to Australia with the creatures there’s gonna be a lot of pickin, tappin, bendin, slappin so get ready Australia and let’s get weird !!!”

Joining them on this three-date tour is JARED JAMES NICHOLS, who has toured with The Creatures on both legs of the Invasion 2019 tour in the USA. NICHOLS is best known for his high-energy performances and ‘pick-less’ electric guitar playing technique. He is rarely seen without playing his “signature” single-pickup Gibson Les Paul Custom P90 nick-named Old Glory. He fronts a power trio under his name, rooted in the early 1970s hard-rock vein of Cream and Mountain.

Get set for a night of pure guitar driven ecstasy where shred meets the blues and plenty of technical genius on display.

Also joining on the tour, to complete the line-up, will be Australia’s From Love To Violence,  band who draw “from their creative influences, experimenting in a combination of heavy\dance\ electronic\rock to form a unique sound that gets your blood pumping and leaves you wanting more!!”

Dates are as follows: 

  • Thursday 16 April: The Prince – Melbourne
  • Friday 17 April: The Zoo – Brisbane
  • Sat 18 April: Manning Bar – Sydney

Pre sale: Wednesday 18 September, 9am AEST to Thursday 19 September 5pm AEST
