John William Lowery was born July 31, 1971 in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. He has played with Marilyn Manson, Loser, Two, many more bands, and is currently playing with Rob Zombie and Meat Loaf. The name John 5 was given to him as he was the fifth replacement member to join Marilyn Manson, and also refers to a passage in the bible. He has two children.

He was Marilyn Manson’s guitarist from July 1998 to March 30th, 2004. He replaced Zim Zum, while he has yet to be replaced. Was he kicked out? According the John 5’s offical website: “No, he wasn’t. John and Manson split amicable after five years of working together. Both came to a point in their career’s where they wanted to try new directions. John was working on his first solo album after being prompted by Les Paul himself. Manson was looking into new directions, including his paintings and filmmaking. So after the Grotesk Burlesk tour they came to an amicable agreement and went their own ways. The two still have contact and still hold a great deal of admiration for one another. And John is still as big a fan of the band and their music as he was before he joined.”

John 5 has recorded three solo albums. His solo material is a mixture of hard rock, progressive bluegrass, and country music, a mixture he calls “Blackgrass”.
