FEATURING JOHN 5 – THE LEAD GUITARIST FOR ROB ZOMBIE
LOS ANGELES, CA — November 18, 2008 — IMV LLC announces the release of a new Interactive Music Video featuring Rob Zombie guitarist, John 5. John 5 has played with great artists including: Marilyn Manson, K.D. Lang and David Lee Roth and his virtuoso talents span many styles, from bluegrass to heavy metal.
The IMV: Behind the Player DVD series -- which features personal music lessons from members of some of the world's most influential bands like Godsmack, Ozzy Osbourne, Slipknot, Atreyu and Velvet Revolver -- provides music fans with an exciting new way to learn their to play favorite songs: right from the artists that recorded them.
In his IMV: Behind the Player DVD, John 5 gives an intimate behind-the scenes look at his life as a professional musician – including rare photos and video footage.
