Guitarist John 5 has an impossibly extensive and diverse résumé, from David Lee Roth’s DLR Band, when he was just plain John Lowery, and Marilyn Manson, who gave him his numerical surname, to k.d. lang, who hired him as touring guitarist, and his current role as Rob Zombie’s shredder of choice.

That last position has kept J5 busy for more than a decade; most recently, he’s finished work on Zombie’s new album, as well as the score for Zombie’s new movie, 31, and he’s preparing to tour with him all this summer. Read more in this week's Sound Advice.


See John 5 and the Creatures with Static Tension Thursday at Southgate House Revival (Sanctuary). More info/tickets: southgatehouse.com .
