Video: John 5 Watches Fan Covers of Himself on YouTube


John 5 probably needs no introduction; after more than twenty years of working with a series of legendary frontman (David Lee Roth, Marilyn Manson, and, currently, Rob Zombie) and producing his own diverse array of solo material, Mr. 5 has rightfully earned the status of Guitar God.

So how do the John 5 worshippers of YouTube stack up against the man himself? We recently caught up with John before a performance at Manhattan’s Highline Ballroom to show him footage of fans covering his work and ask him what he thinks. Spoiler alert: John loved all of ’em. Given his talent and success, John is almost shockingly humble, and didn’t seem to realize beforehand that these kinds of videos even exist. By the end of the shoot, he was saying he just wanted to stay on YouTube and watch more fans cover him for the rest of the day.

Watch the video of John watching videos below! John 5 and the Creatures’ new live album, It’s Alive, is out now. Get it here. Get all upcoming John 5 tour dates, solo and with Rob Zombie, here.
