JOHN 5 On NIKKI SIXX: 'He's My Best Friend. We Love Each Other.'

In a brand new interview with Jameson Ketchum of Outburn, former MARILYN MANSON and current ROB ZOMBIE guitarist John 5 spoke about his close friendship with MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx. He said: "Nikki, he's my best friend. We love each other. He has inspired me and taught me so much about life in general. He's a phenomenal songwriter, lyricist, author, everything. He's always telling me to listen to this audio book or see this movie. He has a happy marriage, a happy life, a successful band he started from the ground up. He's one of the most inspiring people. He'll text me all the time to read something or try something. It's wonderful. He's a phenomenal photographer as well. I remember him telling me that he’s going to take bass lessons again and get into playing with his fingers. He was so dedicated. We worked on 'The Dirt' soundtrack together. When we went into the studio, he did it all with his fingers. [MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer] Tommy Lee was like, 'Look at you.' He's just such a dedicated person. I loved ['The Dirt'] movie; it was killer."

JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES — comprised of John 5, bassist Ian Ross and drummer Logan Miles Nix — recently released a teaser for their next music video, "I Want It All". The clip was directed by Israel Perez Hortal and will make its online debut on July 31, the same day JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES' new album, "Invasion", is released.

Just like 2017's "Season Of The Witch", "Invasion" — produced and mixed by Barry Pointer — is being made available via a series of music videos.

JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES will team up with THE ARISTOCRATS for a co-headlining show on Sunday, September 1 at 1720 in Los Angeles. The show will be the first John 5 performance following the release of "Invasion".
