John 5 told Seattle Music Insider that he ”wanted to be like KISS” when he first started to play guitar. ”[I] loved KISS growing up,” he said. ”Who didn’t?” John 5 revealed in a separate interview with Digital Trends that KISS’s 1977 classic ”Love Gun” was the first album he connected with. ”It’s got a great cover. I loved it. I was, like, ’Oh my God — these are monsters with guitars!’ I was so young then.”
