HARD ROCK | John 5


You'd think listing Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie as your bosses would be cool enough, but guitarist John 5 has maintained his identity working with the who's who in metal and heavy music. John 5 has added plenty of ominous cinematic shred to these artists. But they haven't colored him. The musician is an incredible player who can chicken pick and play Spansih guitar with mucho, flamenco flutter and flight. When blended with the heavy stuff jaws drop, toes tap, heads bang.

John 5 plays Saturday, March 7, at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. 8 p.m. $17.;
