Rob Zombie guitarist, John 5, and his band The Creatures play to a packed room at the San Francisco night club.

Although he is best known for his guitar work with Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, and David Lee Roth, John 5 has also been releasing his own solo albums since 2004. This year, he hit the road with his band, The Creatures, to not only give life to some of the songs on those records, but also to show off his shredding, yet surgically precise, guitar craftsmanship.

The tour kicked off late last week, and National Rock Review photographer, Raymond Ahner, was on hand for the second date in San Francisco to cover the action.
