There are few guitarists of this generation that are as notable as John 5. Perhaps most famously known as Rob Zombie’s current guitarist, John 5 has a strong following of his own. Performing at the Whisky with his side project, John 5 and the Creatures, he was a delight to see up close and personal.

The instrumental set was full of surprises as John 5 played a wide variety of styles, including a couple country and bluesy tunes – even bringing out a banjo at one point. Without vocals, it was possible to truly focus on his artistry as a guitarist and marvel at his skills. While he only spoke at one point to thank the crowd for coming to see him perform, he was full of personality, and it came through to the audience. Switching among roughly 5 guitars, his fingers were flying, and the audience was treated to a great show.
