Beat it, John 5

John 5

John 5, the “awesome” guitarist that plays in not-so-awesome bands (ex-Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie), has a new album coming out. No one knows exactly why, but he’s offering the first single for purchase on Amazon, and it’s a cover of Micheal Jackson’s hit Beat It.

You can hear a preview there, and while the song sounds decent, his announcement for the new album isn’t:

I have an album called ‘God Told Me To’ [coming out] and it’s half heavy and it’s half acoustic, which I’ve never done before. I’m doing a cover of Michael Jacksons’s ‘Beat It’, an instrumental version of it. And it’s gonna be amazing. I’m really excited about this record ’cause of the acoustic stuff, ’cause I’ve never done that before. And it’s gonne be awesome. I’m so excited for this to come out. I think I’m gonna put a [making-of] DVD out with it. People always like to see how I do things and stuff.

Usually when someone throws around words like awesome and amazing, it’s us, talking about this site. And that’s cool because we’re a bunch of assholes and we admit it. This guy is actually serious. You can see the cover for the single after the jump.
