John 5 talks to ONSTAGE REVIEW ahead of #famousmonsterstour start

 

Tonight boils and ghouls, John 5 and The Creatures start their FAMOUS MONSTERS tour with special guests Wednesday 13 and Hellzapoppin Circus Revue. Ahead of the show, which will take place at The Blue Note in Harrison, OH, John had a phone interview with ONSTAGE REVIEW who asked John questions such as his favourite TV there tune (and what was the first one he learnt to play), his early bands in school, keeping the name John and Mozart; “You know, I love Mozart. I love the story of Mozart and he was a REAL…they say he was the only REAL genius in…you know, the history of man because of the fact he was doing all these things as a baby, as a kid, you know, as like a 4 year old, a 5 year old, a 6 year old.

He also clears up how a throwaway joke comment made by best friend Nikki Sixx, suddenly became an internet rumour, then a number of articles….. “You know, me and Nikki are like best friends … we’re just … always says funny, silly things, you know, on Instagram in our comments … so he was just saying that on the Instagram comments.”

John 5 Nikki Sixx My Favorite Riff

From Sixx Sense:

Nikki’s good friend John 5, best known for his work with Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie, talks about the show “Hee Haw” inspiring him to pick up the guitar on this episode of My Favorite Riff, our video series where some of the world’s greatest guitar and bass players, along with future stars, talk about music, gear, and most importantly, riffs.

John 5 talks about the beauty in simplicity, shows off his Chicken Pickin’, shows off the awesome riffs in some Michael Jackson hits, and turning country riffs in metal songs. He also speaks on his inspirations (“anything out of the norm”) and how he went from wanting to only be a session performer to touring the world.
