J5 is an insane player. Off the top of my head: He learned to play by watching Hee Haw with his father. He learned chicken pickin' at a young age. He then went on to rock citing EVH as an influence. He says Marilyn Manson gave him his name when he toured with him. He's also toured with NIN and done stints with Country Music stars whom I can't remember because, well, who cares about Country Music. He's been touring with Rob Zombie for years as well as touring with his own band(s). If you watch some of his instructional videos he actually says which notes he's playing instead of, "B string, 14th fret," as opposed to Zakk Wylde saying, "The high note." I've never seen anyone do the Chimpanzee better than J5.
Look him up on U-tube if it isn't blocked over there.
