Her Bullets' Energy

Album: John Garcia (2014)


  • John Garcia is best known for his work in the band Kyuss, where he was the frontman and a songwriter on their later albums. His first solo album was released in 2014, and "Her Bullets' Energy" was the first single. In our interview with Garcia, he described the song as "the classic him/her/drugs/tragedy/cheating" type of thing. Garcia explained that his songs are not based on real events, and often have a degree of tragedy in them.
  • Robby Krieger, who is the guitarist for The Doors, played guitar on this track and co-wrote it with Garcia. Speaking about working with Krieger, Garcia told us: "I've seen Robby Krieger play several times as a fan and somebody being out in the audience. And I'm a big Doors fan. So to have him want to be a part of this project was a big honor. To see him work and how he did it, and walking into a studio with a burrito in one hand and an acoustic in another, and have him just set his burrito down and start whaling acoustically on 'Her Bullets' Energy' was an unbelievable experience and something that I will never forget for the rest of my life."
