We’ve been trying to get an interview with Rob Zombie for years now and when they come back with Rob’s not available would you like to talk to John 5 my response is always going to be fuck yeah! John 5 is a Guitar God. The guy is just insane. He is under appreciated because he’s best known for his work in Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie (not exactly bands known for its virtuoso guitar playing), but the guy is second to none. I got a chance to chat with him about the new Zombie record “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor,” the Mayhem tour and Rob’s short-lived feud with Marilyn Manson.
Fresh from the Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival I got the chance to chat with Chris Kael from the band Five Finger Death Punch. What a cool refreshing dude man. The boys in Death Punch have 2 new albums coming out very soon entitled “The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell Vol 1 & 2.” In the last year FFDP has gotten to work with Rob Halford, record two album, open for Kiss and Metallica. Sounds like a pretty good year.
I know I’ve kind of given out my best album of 2012 several times this year. I’m really struggling right now. There are a lot of bands in contention: Adrenaline Mob, Flying Colors, Halestorm, Van Halen, hopefully Aerosmith. At this moment in time I can’t seem to stray away from In This Moment’s “Blood.” Beginning to end that thing is amazing. It’s accessible to a wider audience then they’re use to, but at the same time it’s completely original and true to the In This Moment sound. Recently I got the chance to interview Chris Howorth of In This Moment, we talked about the new album, the Uproar tour and Maria Brink singing with Shinedown.
