Enter John 5: Guitar Virtuoso Covers Metallica’s “Sandman”

  • Axl Rosenberg

Do you love Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” but hate Kirk Hammett’s overindulgence of his wah pedal?

Well, this ain’t gonna help you any.

BUT… if you love Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” but wish there was EVEN MORE WAH, then John 5’s new cover of the Metalliclassic is gonna be right up your alley. Because that’s really the only difference between it and the original: a wah-heavy guitar does Hetfield’s vocal line. Otherwise it’s more or less the original all over again. Even the guitar solo is the same, which seems kinda nuts, because John 5 is an excellent guitarist in his own right and I don’t think anyone would have minded if he’d made the solo unique to him. He does shred a ton at the end, but by then, you’ll already be wondering why you’re not just listening to The Black Album already.

Exit wah, enter more wah:
