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.

John 5 speaks to Revolver about the albums that made him

From Revolver Magazine:

What it all comes down to, and what John 5 makes clear in the following interview, is that regardless of all the success he’s had as a solo artist or playing alongside everyone from Rob Zombie to Marilyn Manson to Rob Halford to David Lee Roth, he’s still as much of a fan as he ever was. “All these records that I’m talking about here, I listen to them still today,” he says. “I’m still obsessed with Kiss. I’m still obsessed with Van Halen. I guess we don’t change that much from being kids.” He laughs. “Either we don’t change that much or we just have really good taste.”
