John 5 Talk is Jericho

From Talk is Jericho:

Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 got his first big break with KD Lang, was fired from Marilyn Manson’s band, and has a massive KISS memorabilia collection you can see on Instagram @knightsinsatanservice. John 5 also wrote and recorded two albums with David Lee Roth, and shares plenty of stories about that experience along with the time he was dissed by Rob Halford as a teenager in Detroit, and what happened when he spontaneously jumped in an elevator with Gene Simmons from KISS. Plus, he’s dropping some 411 on the new Rob Zombie studio album coming out early next year.

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.”

John 5 talks to In The Loop about touring, KISS and the forthcoming Rob Zombie album

From In The Loop Magazine:

In The Loop Magazine’s Christopher David recently had a chat with guitar legend in the making, John 5. John 5 has been around for some time now playing with iconic industrial metal bands like Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie, but he’s been building his own fan base strong for many years as well with his own solo work.

John 5 and The Creatures played at Reggies Rock Club in Chicago to a completely packed house filled with fans from all his works. This is his third time around with the Creatures and each time has grown larger and larger. So much so that if he does this again next year, might need to look into a larger venue.”

We talked about his early days and what shaped his love for playing intimate venues, his recent night out with Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley of KISS, guitarists that he’s jammed with and lots more. Having a son in his early teens like me I had to get his take on Robert Trujillo’s 12 year old son, Tye, touring with Korn through South America. We talked about the use of social media, nerves on stage and his thoughts on the closing of Joe Louis arena.”
