ROB ZOMBIE Guitarist JOHN 5 Working On Instructional DVD
ROB ZOMBIE/ex-MARILYN MANSON guitarist John 5 is currently putting the finishing touches on an instructional DVD, tentatively due by Halloween. He has also started work on a new instrumental CD for a 2008 release.
John 5 released his third solo album, "The Devil Knows My Name", on April 3. The CD features guest guitar solos from two legendary guitarists — Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson — plus SLIPKNOT's Jim Root. Keeping time are John's ZOMBIE bandmates Tommy Clufetos (drums) and Piggy D. (bass). According to a press release, this is the only album that all leads were doubled — an instrumental feat that is rarely taken on by the best of the guitar players.
John 5's second solo album, "Songs for Sanity" (2005), featured guest guitar solos from Steve Vai and Albert Lee. John also worked with KISS frontman Paul Stanley on Stanley's second solo album, "Live to Win", which was released in October.
