Johnny represents a rare breed within the music scene. While all will spend their time and energy honing their craft, few have gone the distances and invested even in half of the sacrifices he's made for his music. From lengthy drives just to make practices, to days spent researching material for songs, to the months spent learning the full wealth of behind-the-scenes processes, there are few that have put that much of themselves out there. And now, after finding the right group, he's finally gotten his chance to combine this great interest with one of his other great passions: horror films. What you see on stage isn't a character or show; this is the distillation of a whole life- devil horns up and machetes held high.
" That squealing, high end effects you hear? That's no ordinary guitar player, son. That's Grey Jones, the six stringin' , (even if he plays it backwards) eccentric, jack of all trades of 13 Nails. The primary force that makes sure 13N doesn't turn into just another metal band, a constant tinkerer of guitar effects. Now, the legends say he's mad, and with some of what I've seen him wear, no one in their right mind could be considered of the sane sort. Unless of course there's more then one person masquerading as Mr. Jones, which brings up even more terrifying questions.
He is made up of the most rare bassist sounds to hit the metal scene. From hardcore punk to heavy metal he brings a lead guitar sound to the 4 string bass. He brings the coffin rattling sounds to 13 Nails and the drive behind the creepy sounds. He isn't just another bassist he is the angry, scary thump in the night!
