Former Marilyn Manson and current Rob Zombie guitarist, John 5 and his solo band 'The Creatures' invaded Cleveland Friday night at the Beachland Ballroom and Tavern. It's hard to classify John's style when he's doing his solo thing, because you get a little bit of everything — ranging from heavy metal riffs, to bluegrass style and everything in between. The hourish long set involved all of that, which ended in a montage of iconic guitar riffs the crowd roared along to.
I admit, John 5 is the iconic generation axe master of my time. The dude is vastly diverse with his guitar playing, the creativity just oozes out of his strings. And let me add, he has A LOT of strings! It was a great pleasure to cross this show off my bucket list and with my friends of Olathia opening the night, I've couldn't have been happier with the results.
