Rob Zombie Guitarist John 5 Gushes About New Van Halen

(hennemusic) Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 is getting set to release his new album, "God Told Me To," in a few weeks, but he's taking time out from promoting his upcoming project to rave about the new Van Halen album, "A Different Kind Of Truth."

"It's amazing!" he tells MusicRadar. "I love the new Van Halen record. Let me rephrase that: I love, love, love the new Van Halen record. It's heavy. If you really sit down and listen to it, it's totally heavy. The band isn't playing it safe at all, and that's what's so great about it."

When the album's first song, "Tattoo," was released, many folks were less than impressed. John 5, however, quickly chalked it up as a winner. "It's a wonderful song," he says. "I remember everybody going, 'Ahhh, I don't know about this Tattoo.' But I'll tell you, by the second or third time I heard it, it was in my head. And that's the mark of any great song - it stays with you." more on this story
