John 5 and The Creatures Hell Haw video

As John 5 fans will have noticed, the latest John 5 and The Creatures single “Hell Haw” was missing a video.

Don’t forget to leave him a happy birthday message here, or on twitter or Facebook.

The video, directed and edited by Matt Zane of Lord Zane Productions, features guest appearances from Red Hot Rita, Piggy D, Dr Ood, Mad Mad Mindy, Grandpa Bob Bob, Sasha Sin and Howdy Hell. The Creatures are Rodger Carter (Drums) and Ian Ross (Bass)

Our friends at Fender.com have exclusively revealed the video for the new John 5 and The Creatures song, ‘Behind The Nut Love’ and you can watch it now, HERE. (The video will be available at john-5.com from Feb 3rd).

The song is a reworking of the track which originally appeared on the John 5 solo album Songs For Sanity. This version has been a favorite on recent John 5 and The Creatures tours. The video itself has been directed by Lord Zane. The track is also available anywhere digital music is sold.

Speaking to Fender.com, John says “I always wanted to be a lap steel player because I loved Hee-Haw and that stuff. I loved the sound of it. This is my tribute to that instrument.”

I tuned the guitar to an E major chord because with a pedal steel, when you’re working the pedals, it’s to an open chord. And I just started messing around. This was the result.”

The track will be available later in the year as part of the next John 5 album, “Guitars, T!ts, And Monsters”.
