On May 5 he releases his fifth solo CD, The Art of Malice on 60 Cycle Hum/Rocket Science Ventures. There is some sort of synergy in that. John 5’s 5th CD. Don’t you think? I had occasion to interview John 5 for gearwire.com regarding music gear stuff—including his signature Telecaster . He was a soft spoken guy who had a lot of useful stuff to say and he is a great guitarist and he really defies genre classifications on his solo records.
Sure, it is rock (duh) but trying to pigeon hole it on the basis of who he has worked with really is fruitless. He is well worth a listen, especially for aspiring guitarists.
