John 5 is one of modern rock’s most highly revered guitarists. Notorious for his lightning fast playing and enormous versatility, he quickly became a sought after session guitarist scoring high profile gigs at the age of 18 touring with Lita Fordand k.d. lang and in the studio playing with Rob Halford’s industrial metal project Twoand David Lee Roth’s The DLR Band album. John 5 released his debut solo album ‘Vertigo’ in 2004 and its follow up ‘Songs For Sanity’ in 2005 just as he paired up with Rob Zombie for Ozzfest. John went on to play on the majority of Zombie’s 2006 release ‘Educated Horses’ and has been part of Rob Zombie’s band since. Their most recent album ‘The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy’, released earlier this year, saw enormous success on the Billboard charts, hitting #1 across 11 charts, including Current Rock, Top Albums and Top Current Albums and #9 on the Top 200. Most recently, John 5 combined forces with Rob Zombie, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Clufetos to create a supergroup dubbed The LA Rats and record “I’ve Been Everywhere”, the lead track for upcoming movie “The Ice Road” starring Liam Neeson. John 5 has been hard at work on his next solo album. More news on that coming later this year. While he may be just in the beginning stages of his career, Jared James Nichols has already picked up plenty of rabid acolytes along the way, whether they’ve turned on and tuned in to his electrifying riff-‘n’-roll from records like his 2015 debut, Old Glory & the Wild Revivalor the 2018 follow up Black Magic, at one of his own incendiary solo gigs, or from catching him onstage with giants like Slash, Billy Gibbons, Zakk Wylde and the late, great Leslie West, among many others.
Nichols was recently named Global Brand Ambassador for Gibson guitars. Jared is one of three guitarists to now be given this title, the other two being Slash and Dave Mustaine. His brand latest single “Skin ‘N Bone” ushers Blues Power to the modern age. His next single “Bad Roots” drops July 28 followed by the EP “Shadow Dancer” on Sept 17.
