Watch John 5 and Joe Bonamassa duet on Jimi Hendrix classics

From Guitar.com:

John 5 and Joe Bonamassa teamed up for a stellar Jimi Hendrix jam at 1720 in Los Angeles last night [Sept 1].

John 5, who was performing in support of his latest solo effort, Invasion, had invited Joe B up on stage for a duet. The pair then delivered faithful renditions of Hendrix’s Foxy Ladyand Spanish Castle Magic. Bonamassa was on vocal duty while the pair traded guitar licks on their respective axes – Bonamassa with his trusty Les Paul and John 5 with his dual-humbucker Telecaster.

Watch the video above!


J5 speaks to Guitar World: “I play so much guitar that it might not even be healthy – and I’m not joking”

John 5 Guitar World August 2019 Tour Bus Live

John 5 Guitar World August 2019 Tour Bus Live

From Guitar World:

John 5 might just be the most subversive artist working in the music business today. Yes, he rocks the corpse-paint vibe and has spent a goodly chunk of his career playing electric guitar with master of controversy Marilyn Manson and his current bandleader, Rob Zombie, so the obvious conclusion is that he’s working the ‘horror metal’ groove to the max.

But even the most rudimentary investigation into his solo albums and videos reveals a very different reality. Sure, you’ll uncover some scary monster sounds, serial-killer-inspired titles and sound clips, and an eerie, unsettling sense at work in many of the songs. But what you’ll also find is some of the most sublimely gnarly country-style picking this side of Robert’s Western World in Nashville…

John took time out from his relentless schedule to discuss his new album, Invasion, his career to date and how he’s managed to steer a successful and lucrative course through the difficulties of monetizing a career in a ravaged music industry.

Metal Rules interviews John 5; “I Have Such an Appreciation for All Types of Music!”

John 5 Metal Rules Interview

John 5 Metal Rules Interview

From Metal Rules:

One of the hardest working musicians on the planet has to be guitar virtuoso, John 5. He is currently on tour this summer with Rob Zombie, he released an innovative and dynamic new solo CD, Invasion, on July 31st, and he just announced a solo tour starting October 30th.

John 5’s guitar abilities are unsurpassed to most guitarists with the perfect combination of brilliant technique and style. A visionary player that can sculpt sound and bend minds in equal measure. He is a true innovator and virtuoso on the guitar. Together with Roger Carter on drums and Ian Ross on bass of The Creatures, John and his band explore every sonic highway possible; from the shredding on “Midnight Mass” to the country picking on “Howdy” to EDM on “Crack It – Living with Ghosts!”

I caught up with John to talk about his impressive new solo CD, the importance of creating a highly entertaining live show, and his Fall solo tour with Jared James Nichols.

MXDWN Music reviews Invasion: “Eclectic, strange and satisfying”.

I Want It All John 5 and The Creatures

I Want It All John 5 and The Creatures

Another brilliant review on the album Invasion from John 5 and The Creatures, this time from MXDWN Music.

“Some other notable songs on the album are “Howdy,” “Crank It – Living With Ghosts” and “I Like the Funk.” Each of these songs is incredibly different from each other, which is part of what makes them worth mentioning. “Howdy” is filled with country guitar licks and some impressive picking that not many artists can accomplish. It’s fast-paced and fun, and Lowery shows that he can be much more than a rock guitarist. “Crank It – Living With Ghosts” is worth mentioning not because it’s a great song, but because it’s an odd one that will remain memorable. A robotic voice says throughout “crank it mother fucker,” and though it’s a little bit strange, it gets stuck in listener’s heads for sure. Finally, “I Like the Funk” brings in the funk style on the album, with some funky guitar riffs meshing in with the rock ones.”

Go Venue reviews Invasion. An “explosive new album that shreds, taps and riffs into the soul”.

Invasion John 5 and The Creatures

Invasion John 5 and The Creatures

Last week John 5 and The Creatures released their third album together (and the ninth solo studio release from John 5). There have already been some outstanding reviews for the album, and this one from Go Venue Magazine also heaps praise on Invasion:

“The nexus of the album is the guitar, and the use of styles and flavors to indicate the eclectic study base that has created John 5’s ability is astounding.   The technical ability can be heard by a novice to expert ear, the pace and texture remains smooth and the effect and amplification is that of a master at work.  It is no mistake that the varying styles are supported so well by both bass and drums too, ‘Logan MilesNix‘ drops to a country feel, funk and sporadic jazz fills to weave the underground of each track as necessary, again showcasing the talent of the musicianship in the band.  ‘Ian Ross‘ gives the basslines groove and threads each sequence perfectly and uses effect subtly and yet in equity with the rest of the track.”

Pre Order Invasion John 5 and The Creatures digital and box set

Another fantastic review for the latest John 5 and The Creatures album Invasion, which was released earlier this week (July 31st). This time from our friends at KNAC:

Not typical of other solo records where the bulk of the music is straight Rock and/or Metal, but typical of John 5 is to always add that southern twang letting the listener know where his influence blossomed from, such as the track “Howdy”, appropriately named. With some Rock-A-Billy, a hint of Psycho-Billy and some Country Blues type swings, he also adds a variety of other genres on Invasion to noodle around with. It’s plenty more Dance than anything, with light-hearted jamming allowing him to show off his virtuosity. “Crank It” proves this with the drum-n-bass beat holding steady while John 5 gives the disco track some life. On the track “Zoinks!” he and the band really go off, showing some of that versatility the entire band possesses, with lots of funk and classic rock vibration reminiscent of some Highway Star (DEEP PURPLE).

Invasion John 5 and The Creatures

Yesterday (July 31st) John and The Creatures released their latest album Invasion and our friends at Cryptic Rock have given it a resounding 4.5 out of 5.

“Comparing or ranking John 5 albums seems trivial when you really should just concentrate on the individual moments and the divergence between them that the guitarist is so sly at creating. As an eleventh masterful creation that can not be denied its technical prowess, Cryptic Rock gives John 5’s Invasion 4.5 out of 5 stars.”

From Screamer Magazine:

[John 5] sat down with Screamer Magazine to talk about all things J5, from The Creatures’ new album Invasion (to be released coincidentally on his birthday, July 31st ) and the accompanying promotional tour to the Twins of Evil Tour with Zombie and Manson. 

“The incorporation of different styles is just a reflection of my love of music, and so when I add in some country, jazz, rock or bluegrass, it’s just a way of showing my appreciation and loving what sounds good. I just love anyone that does something really well. I feel inspired, and I love to experiment, so hopefully everyone loves this record as much as I do.”

Metal Nation reviews Invasion: “The Invasion is coming, prepare to be overcome.”

Invasion John 5 and The Creatures

Invasion John 5 and The Creatures

Invasion is out in just FIVE MORE DAYS! Here is another FANTASTIC review, this time from our friends at Metal Nation:

Invasion is quite a bit different than J5’s other offerings, yet you can still easily hear it is John 5. He has a distinctive sound, which is incredible since he plays many different genres of music within each album. The Creatures have continued to impress with the fluid distribution of their instruments, which invade and captures the essence of the music overall. What some would possibly believe about solo guitar work and the probability of it all “sounding the same” from the same musician, would be absolutely incorrect when it comes to John 5 and the Creatures. They are remarkably diverse which keeps you interested album after album. The Invasion is coming, prepare to be overcome.

Cryptic Rock interviews John 5: “I play what I love, it’s from the heart, and people really seem to enjoy it.”

John 5 Cryptic Rock July 2019

John 5 Cryptic Rock July 2019

From Cryptic Rock:

If there was such a thing as a Rock-n-Roll superhero, John 5 would fit the bill. Prolifically releasing new albums in 2017 and 2018, he is set to return with Invasion, his third album in three consecutive years. Famed for working with the likes of David Lee Roth, prior to becoming a fixture in Marilyn Manson, and more recently Rob Zombie, John 5 has dedicated his life to becoming a master of the guitar.

Equipped with extremely polished skills on the fret board, his schizophrenic tastes run the gamut from Metal, Bluegass, and Blues, to Electronic and beyond. The only real question is, can the mythical figure known as John 5 be stopped? The answer is no, but moreover, why would you want to anyway! Inspired and firing on all cylinders, the virtuoso guitarist recently sat down to talk his career, his latest album, plans for the rest of 2019, plus much more.

[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.”
