John 5 On Leaving Rob Zombie’s Band “It Was Very Difficult, Of Course”
“Well, it was very difficult, of course. Because for me and Rob, for 17 years (we were) very close, had a wonderful working relationship, a friend relationship and we made so much great music together. This opportunity came, and I was like “I gotta do this for me” I want to see this through me eyes, and experience everything I can experience in my life. And, ya know, I’m happy I did it. It’s the greatest thing ever!”
He told me about flying private planes around the world and playing massive stages with Motley and Def Leppard. “It’s just a dream, and that’s what important because there’s so many musicians or actors or artists, that are like “I don’t know. It’s a one in a million shot.” But, you gotta do it!”
He said talking to his friend Rob was the most nervous part about the whole thing, explaining his situation and how he felt.
Watch below, as John talks about the first time he actually played with the Crue (which is a funny story) touring with them, writing new music and a TON more!
