JOHN 5 Is Not Taking Anything For Granted...

Everyone has hopes and dreams when they are young, but how many actually achieve those aspirations? I bet it’s fair to say that it’s not too many. Well for one guitarist from Michigan, many of those dreams have come true, and then some!

JOHN 5 has been living a life that most musicians couldn’t even imagine. He has played and collaborated with some of the most iconic names in rock music such as David Lee Roth, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Steve Perry, to name a few. That is also in addition to a successful solo career and duties with his band John 5 and The Creatures. To say John is always busy, would be a Grosse understatement!  Don’t let all the accolades that John has racked up fool you though, he is immensely thankful for every opportunity that he has been granted.

I recently caught up with John 5 to talk about all things music. Take a listen to our chat about being too loud on a cruise ship, bluegrass inspirations, being told to put the guitar down and go outside, and volunteering to create a new Brady Bunch theme song for free…
