Former MARILYN MANSON and current ROB ZOMBIE guitarist John 5 (real name: John William Lowery) embarked on the “Mad Monster Tour” featuring his band JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES.
Speaking to Revolver magazine, John 5 stated about “Careful With That Axe”: “It’s really exciting for me, because this is what I think music is really about. I fund this whole thing by myself and I don’t do it for money; it’s just for the love of the guitar. I think people really understand that.
Asked how he continuously finds inspiration to write new music, John 5 said: “I always look for inspiration. If I find something that’s inspiring, I’m so excited, because it is very hard to find something inspiring. I can get inspired, like anyone, from movies or music or TV or a certain way people think. I’ve always liked people that were obsessive with something. I love watching documentaries on people like ‘clean freaks,’ because it’s just so interesting to me for some reason. [Laughs] Sounds weird, but it’s the truth.”
