ROB ZOMBIE Bassist PIGGY D To Design Sleeve For JOHN 5's New Solo Album

ROB ZOMBIE/ex-MARILYN MANSON guitarist John 5 has tapped ROB ZOMBIE bassist Piggy D (a.k.a. Matt Montgomery) to design the sleeve inlay for John 5's upcoming third solo album, "The Devil Knows My Name", due on April 3, 2007 via Shrapnel Records. "I'm very excited about how it's turning out and I know [the fans] will dig it too," Piggy says. "This is the first time I've desinged an entire package for a record, and already have more on the books to do! I took lots of photos on the last ROB ZOMBIE tour that will be included in the design. That's all I want to say about [it]. I want it to be a surprise!"

"The Devil Knows My Name" will feature guest appearances by Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE), Joe Satriani, Tommy Clufetos (ROB ZOMBIE, ex-ALICE COOPER), Piggy D. (ROB ZOMBIE), and Matt Bissonette (DAVID LEE ROTH), among others.

As previously reported, John 5 (ROB ZOMBIE, ex-MARILYN MANSON) will be the featured guest on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" airing Monday, January 29. The live show begins at 8:30 p.m. PT / 11:30 p.m. ET, and fans are encouraged to call in with questions during the program at (800) 344-ROCK (7625). To find a station near you, check out
