John 5 has compiled one of the most impressive resumes in rock. In addition to his own solo work, his commanding riffs combined with his composition skills have most recently earned him a coveted spot playing with rock icon Rob Zombie.
John 5's credentials include his famous stint with shock rocker MARILYN MANSON and his current gig with ROB ZOMBIE, but also includes diverse work with some names you might not expect, including Lita Ford, K.D. Lang, David Lee Roth, Meat Loaf, SALT-N-PEPA, LYNYRD SKYNYRD and many others. Surprisingly to many, John 5 has an ardent love of bluegrass music and has the chops to prove it (just listen to "Sugar Foot Rag" from 2004 solo album "Vertigo"). Furthermore, he is a self-described "Fender fanatic" with a jaw-dropping collection of his favorite instrument, the Telecaster ("the greatest guitars ever built, by far, hands down," he said). Such is his love for the instrument that Fender introduced the J5 Telecaster (and J5 Special Edition acoustic) in 2004 and the J5 Triple Tele Deluxe in 2007.
John 5 in 2008 released the IMV "Behind the Player" DVD in which he gives an intimate behind-the scenes look at his life as a professional musician, including rare photos and video footage. John 5 then gives in-depth lessons for how to play "Let it All Bleed Out" and "Lords of Salem" by ROB ZOMBIE on guitar and jams the tracks with ROB ZOMBIE drummer Tommy Clufetos.
John 5 issued his fourth solo album, "Requiem", on June 3, 2008 via 60 Cycle Hum. John 5 performs all instruments with the exception of the time-keeping by Zombie bandmate Tommy Clufetos (drums). The album was recorded in the middle of night that lent a cool vibe and only time John 5 had studio times. Most of the songs are 12-13 minutes long so John 5 decided to put in markers to divide them up so when songs change from track to track it seems to meld in to each other.
