John wasn't a particularly great guitarist. In fact, his band was about to kick him out--but that was before the Great Shift happened. With John now in the body of a smokin' hot babe, the rest of his band felt they could let his poor skills slide. They actually started to develop crushes on him. Apparently, their fans did as well. They noticed since the Shift that more and more people were coming to see their shows--but perhaps more accurately, they were coming to see John.
