Live Review – John 5 and The Creatures

Akron , Ohio- The guitar virtuoso John 5 came to the area over of the weekend to the delight of a sold-out crowd! The Empire Concert Club , an intimate venue on the outskirts of Akron, Ohio  played host to the legend in the making . John 5 known for his guitar work for both Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson proved that while he is a team player , he is a bonafide rock-star in his own right and his adoring  fans proved him right .

The packed house was in a treat to hear such songs as ” Season of the Witch ” , ” This is My Rifle ” and ”  Crank It ” among many others .

Some of the crowd favorites were ” Hell Haw ” a twisted version of Hee Haw and  ” First Victim ”  I personally feel the venue was too small for an artist of his stature, but and this is just a guess I think he enjoys the more intimate venue to connect with the fans .
