JOHN 5‘s resume is staggering. He has worked with a varied range of artists, performing as guitarist for some of the biggest headlining rock bands in the world such as Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, as well as playing session with Paul Stanley, Rod Stewart, Lynyrd Skynyrd and more. Slash has called JOHN 5, “one of the most mind-blowing guitarists around” and Rob Zombie has dubbed him “a fucking shredder”. JOHN 5 has released seven solo albums to date, as well as a remix album, and has written music for the likes of Avril Lavigne, Garbage, Ricky Martin and others.
JOHN 5 has just released his full-length album Invasion last July 31, 2019, under the moniker of John 5 and the Creatures. The lineup is completed by bassist Ian Ross and drummer Logan Miles Nix, and Invasion proves to be a diverse progression of the sound that JOHN 5 fans have grown to expect from the eclectic virtuoso.
