Motley Crue and John 5 are preparing to hit the road together, the classic hair metal band joining forces with the former Rob Zombie guitarist for Crue’s “The World Tour” with Def Leppard and Alice Cooper starting next month. Get tickets here. Last year, Motley Crue revealed that founding guitarist Mick Mars was stepping down from touring with the act.

Are you interested in what Motley Crue sounds like with John 5 on the axe? Luckily for longtime fans, John 5 has provided ample evidence of his Motley Crue guitar chops since he was chosen as Mars’ touring replacement. Starting in November 2022, John 5 has shared a series of what calls “Motley Mondays” guitar play-through videos on Instagram.

Watch the videos toward the bottom of this post.

In his clips, John 5 has run through Motley Crue classics such as “Home Sweet Home,” “Louder Than Hell,” “Looks That Kill,” “Same Ol’ Situation (S.O.S.),” “Dr. Feelgood” and more. And the guitarist plays them all with expert musicianship on the fretboard.

No wonder Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has said that John 5 checks all of the band’s creative boxes. And Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger already knew John 5 could shred all the classic Crue tunes after getting a sneak peek at his chops on a recent joint trip.

“He just sat there and played every single Motley Crue riff that’s ever been written and recorded flawlessly,” Kroeger recalled. “Flawlessly. You don’t need to put on music when you’ve got that kind of talent. … He was just running the gamut, and it was fantastic.”

See Motley Crue’s 2023 tour dates under the clips.
