    Not sure if that's a tom or a 5-gallon paint bucket.

    Manson recently got Juan Alderete on bass too, also overqualified. But then again, Juan has build quite a diverse list of clientele long since Racer X and Manson would put an awesome live show having him on board.

    John absolutely rips. Sure, you can argue his talents are "wasted" on Manson or Zombie, but he can put on a hell of a show with those guys because he can literally play the material in his sleep. Plus it pays the bills and lets him do the really crazy shit on his solo stuff.

    He seems like one of the nicest guys out there, as well.

    Ya'll ever see the vid of Manson kicking him onstage on John getting pissed?



    He was on the No Guitar Is Safe podcast a couple years ago and the host asked him about this. I guess his father was in the hospital and was ready to pass at any moment, he was expecting the call to come in. As he was walking to the stage their tour manager stopped him and said, "John, call home. Now." John figured it was the call regarding his father's passing, called home and found out his sister had OD'd and died. Then he got onstage. He actually spoke of the incident in a positive light and said he was thankful Manson kicked him, because Manson taught him how to pick up and carry on despite what's going on in your life.

    I also don't dig everything I hear from and it's almost a novelty, like Buckethead's music (except Coma, LOVE that record!!) but his prowess is really inspiring. The way that dude can plug straight into a tiny ass practice amp without a single pedal in front of him and get all those sounds out of it is ridiculous. He also played that tune in the OP vid FLAWLESSLY like he'd been playing it since he were born. He also had a stint with DLR back in the day.

    Which is not the way one should handle it. If that skinny little twat kicked me like that, his entire fan base would have seen me beat the living shit out of him, damn the consequences. Then, Manson could be thankful for me teaching him how to handle sensitive situations.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.
