Watch some great footage from John 5 and The Creatures recent show at the Discovery on Venture, CA as they perform John’s cover of the Michael Jackson hit “Beat It”.
The Phoenix New Times Blogs caught up with John a couple of days ago. Enjoy the interview.
Metalkrant caught up with John 5 while he was on the recent Rob Zombie/Megadeth tour.
On his upcoming album, God Told Me To, guitarist John 5 covers Michael Jackson’s Beat It – and does a spot-on rendition of Eddie Van Halen’s famous solo. “It’s one of the most incredible leads ever,” he admits. “For me to play it any other way would have been wrong somehow. A solo like that, you have to do it perfectly.”
Beat, it, the long awaited track from John 5 is out now and available to download from all good online music retailers.
