Cleveland, Ohio – The virtuoso guitarist simply known as John 5 played to a packed crowd at the Beachland Ballroom this weekend . John is considered to be rock royalty with the pedigree to match .Playing with artists such as Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie and David Lee Roth and basically a who’s who of the music industry .
John 5 and The Creatures is currently on tour in support of their latest release ” Its Alive ” which is available at most media outlets .
I saw him play before with Rob Zombie but I was intrigued to see how he would be center stage and I can say this is three simple words . ” Does Not Disappoint ” John and the band took the stage like a tornado mixing sound and fury with the delicate balance and melody and virtuosity.The band played songs ranging from industrial style metal , blue grass and rockabilly to fresh interpretations of classic songs .The re-imaging of ” Enter Sandman ” was inspiring and I enjoyed it more then the original . A lot of bands use stage sets and makeup up to cover lack of talent and originality however with John 5 he is the exact opposite .The man could walk on an empty stage, pick up a second hand guitar that is missing two strings and still make peoples jaws drop in amazement, he’s that good .
