During a recent conversation on a radio podcast, 102.9 The Hog, Rob Zombie lead guitarist John 5 revealed his best friend ever from the rock star world, and he didn’t choose his bandmate, Marilyn Manson.
As we all know, they have been considered as the best friends ever since John 5 started making music with Marilyn Manson, but he gave a very different answer rather than Marilyn.
When asked about his involvement with the soundtrack for the latest Motley Crue biopic documentary, ‘The Dirt,’ John 5 talked about how close friends they are with Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx.
Here’s what John 5 said:
“Me and Nikki are like two 15-year-olds who are just on the phone twenty thousand times a day and we hang out all the time.
We’ll go to the mall and we’ll go ride bikes and we’ll do ridiculous stuff like that. And so, of course, we like to play music together, and yeah, that’s how that came about – writing music for ‘The Dirt.’ And those songs are killer.
I’m so proud to be a part of Motley Crue history… And also, I wanna say, those guys – Mick [Mars, guitar] and Nikki and Tommy [Lee, drums] and Vince [Neil, vocals] – they just killed it in the studio too; it was, like, one or two takes.
It’s pretty incredible, it’s pretty astounding what true professionals they are. It was really incredible.”
“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 audiobook 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.”
