Former MARILYN MANSON Guitarist Spotlighted In F.P.E.'s 'Riff Of The Month' Video Series

Music marketing and lifestyle company F.P.E. has kicked of its new "Riff of the Month" online video series in October with the work of multifaceted guitarist John 5 (ex-MARILYN MANSON, Rob Halford's TWO).

Since his departure from the darkness of MARILYN MANSON, John 5 has crafted an album worth of footstopping guitar magic, entitled "Vertigo". John 5 visited the F.P.E. office to demonstrate his well-schooled approach to playing the guitar — on video. "Riff of the Month" sessions are avaiable via the F.P.E. web site at no cost to web surfers and guitar enthusiasts. Other artists featured in the "Riff of the Month" section include Page Hamilton of HELMET, Brad Fernquist, and Eric and T.J. of the band SUBMERSED. Upcoming "Riff of the Month" artists include bassist Chris Chaney (ex-JANE'S ADDICTION), FIREBALL MINISTRY, and Lee Ritineour.

In addition to its "Riff of the Month" series, the F.P.E. site is also home to several other features, including Artist Interviews, Hot Products, Gear Videos, Tip From A Pro, and Contests.

The F.P.E. Media Section contains artist demonstrations of products from manufacturers such as D'Addario, Badcat, LR Baggs, Garrison guitars, Core One Creative and Godlyke. More information is available at
