It’s John Sykes. No wait – it looks like John Sykes. Is that John Sykes? I coulda sworn that was John Sykes.

…no it isn’t, but it’s a dude who’s doing his darndest to *be* John Sykes. His name is Justin Derrico. He’s a pretty amazing player and I think you’ll agree that not only does he look like John Sykes, he has a scarily similar playing style, right down to his note choice and fast right hand picking style, plus the ‘I’m cumming’ guitar-face.





Great song. Great cover, great guitar playing. Great vocals from Pink. Solo begins at 3:18. Blonde wavy hair: check. Les Paul: Check. Cheekbones: Check.

Right – now here’s the real deal. Is that Justin or John?

  3. What the heck? I make those same faces (looks like I’m in pain) when I play but it doesn’t sound the same when I play for some reason.

    He does resemble John and I wish I could play guitar 1/4 as well as he does. He freakin rocked.

  5. Hi Gitbuddy,

    You may be interested to know that John Sykes brought this black Les Paul to me when I was working at Chris and Andy’e in Newcastle upon Tyne.

    He wanted to boost the performance of the instrument a touch. We decided to install a Gibson Dirty Fingers pickup and a brass nut in the guitar and I also did some fret and setup work. He liked it so much that as far as I know he never changed it after that.

    He had quite a bit of success with it too, going on to play with Whitesnake and Thin Lizzy.

    Best wishes,
