John 5 releases Making Monsters video

A live video of John 5 performing song Making Monsters with his band The Creatures has been issued.

The track is lifted from the former Marilyn Manson and current Rob Zombie guitarist’s upcoming solo album, Guitars, T!ts And Monsters, due out later in the year. It follows the promo for Behind The Nut Love that he released at the start of February.

The axeman also collaborated with David Lee Roth on an as-yet-untitled album in 2014, which is yet to be released.

He said: ”I know one thing – Dave loves the record. But he’s doing Van Halen, which is doing great too. So we’ll see what happens in the future. It’s old Van Halen. It sounds like Could This Be Magic? It’s just that sound, that tone.

“The songs are so good, they’re really great.”

Earlier this year he released a video for Black Grass Plague, which features him playing guitar, electric mandolin and a banjo.

John 5 And The Creatures are currently touring the US. The guitarist will then join Rob Zombie for dates in April and May.
