Former Danzig guitarist John Christ returned to the live stage for the first time in 10 years this past Friday, November 27 with a solo performance in Essex, Maryland. According to Bob Suehs of Rock N Roll Experience, the concert "was a mix of guitar shred, melodic interludes, random Danzig songs and it proved what a well-rounded musician he truly is. The fact that 'The Wizard of Oz' theme song was performed in the same set as Stevie Ray Vaughan and Danzig numbers and that transition was effortless on John's part, it proves why John is one of the best guitarist in the hard rock genre!" A review of the show and a bunch of photos can be found at Rock N Roll Experience. A short fan-filmed video clip is available here. John Christ (born John Knoll) left Danzig in July 1995 after four albums and one EP, citing a breakdown in communication within the band as the reason for his departure. In 1997, Christ was part of the short lived band Juice 13, which also included Randy Castillo, former drummer for Ozzy Osbourne. Christ released his debut solo album, "Flesh Caffeine", in 1999.

    I think we knew it would be a matter of time until the return of Christ. Bad puns aside, I'd love to see him back in Danzig, but I like Tommy Victor so lets see if we can get a duel lead thing going on.

    I can't believe I missed this and the show was 20 minutes from my home. John also is working on a book right now.
