    Played with David Lee Roth and Marilyn Manson to name a few. Now with Rob Zombie. Most people who have heard the music from these bands have heard heavier stuff from him. This type of music, along with his image, may deter one from wanting to listen. And that's completely understandable. But behind the makeup, the madness and the heavy music...there is an awesome guitar player. He can play many styles, and comes up with some really cool stuff.

    I remember reading interviews with him when he wa just getting into country and bluegrass, now he's an influential figure in that area.

    He was a session guy before Manson, played with K D Lang.

    My brother listened to Manson and the like in the 90's. He told me about him when he replaced the other guy...sometime around the Mechanical Animals tour or something. I read about him in some mags too, but didn't really start listening to his stuff until the last 5 years or so. Totally caught me off guard and blew me away. Really inspiring.

    I had the same reaction. What I heard from him with MM didn't lead me to believe he had any of this up his sleeve. Then I started catching him on YouTube and was like, "Whoa!"

    So now John 5 is showing up in my YouTube feed. The cover frame cracked me up so I thought I'd post.

    Ha! Man he just doesn't give a you know what. I don't even know what to call that towards the end there...sweep tapping? That was crazy.

    First time I happened across it I thought, "what in the heck could this possibly be"? As soon as I started the video I was like..."Ohhhhh...that".

    This guy could go bankrupt every day and just sell one of his Teles from his collection and still die rich and with a Tele collection !

    Guy can play for sure.

    I pasted a YouTube clip on the original post? If you can't see it, and if you're interested, go to YouTube and search up the title.
