Rob Zombie Fan Question of the Week

Zombiehead Timothy HQuestion: Went to the la crosse show. drove about 4.5 hours. My question is. Do any band members have any CONCERN when there is someone laying in a POOL of BLOOD right in front of the stage and that people well over 150 lbs or more are thrown over the tops of people that dont see them coming and then get KICKED in the face have a full grown person come down on top of you . While magadeth played a guy was thrown over the rail in front and landed on his head on the cement and layed there almost 10 min in a pool of blood Dave M was more into looking at the girl who showed her ass after she made it to the front. He never even gave the guy. A FAN a second look while that fan lay in his own blood.. I may be old and un cool for what i say but I did not pay over $200.00 bucks to watch people have life changing injuries and be around a bunch of fucking RETARDS. I love Rob and his band .they are all that and by far have the coolist show out there but the way people act is more then childish and so fucking wrong. Tell me how can you enjoy a show when the whole time you have to look behind yourself for incoming people that have know brains . What is cool about having people hurt to a point there life may never be the same. OVER A CONCERT> WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW

Answer from Rob: Obviously I am concerned with the safety of our fans, but I can’t control what some people will do. Anytime I see someone hurt or crushed I bring it to the attention of our crew or security. It is the rare incident where I have stopped the show because of this, but it has happened. Seriously though sometimes from the point of view of the stage it is hard to see what is exactly going on out in the chaos of the crowd.

 I guess there is no right answer since the same guy who is gonna kick you in the face is most likely the same guy who is going to throw something at the stage. Basically fans have to exercise some brain power over their actions. No concert is worth ending up in a wheelchair for the experience.

    Case in point… I’ll repost my post about Rob postponing the Little Rock Show on
    Oct 6, 2012…………………………………….
    I’m so disappointed and thankful that the outdoor Little Rock show was postponed last night. (rescheduled for Oct 29)
    I’m disappointed in mother nature for dropping the temp. over 30 degrees in less than 24 hours and making it rain. She is such a bitch!
    I’m disappointed in Little Rock and Pulaski county in the fact that they still have not moved the state fair grounds to west Little Rock. It
    can’t be in a worse spot in the entire city. Its old and dated and a total embarrassment to those of us that live in central Arkansas.
    Putting on a Zombie show there must be like putting a corvette body on a go-cart frame.
    (However, we do have several better options to hold concerts)
    I’m disappointed that some drove hours, bought hotel rooms, just to find out that they can’t attend the rescheduled date. That’s got to suck.
    BUT………………………….
    I’m thankful that Rob and his crew made the call to NOT put on a less than epic show and NOT put the band, crew, fans, etc. in harms way by
    taking an unneeded risk with the stage, props, etc. Not to mention everyone’s health in cold, wet conditions.
    I’m thankful that even though we are a small city. We still have enough Zombieheads here to draw Zombie concerts.
    I’m thankful for the opportunity to drive 45 min’s, hyped out of my mind for a Zombie concert twice in one month! Since I didn’t learn of the situation until I arrived at the fair grounds. I’m thankful that our local radio station “The Edge” does their best to get Zombie here when, where and however they can. Off subject, I’m thankful for the Lords of Salem trailer.
    Lastly, I’m thankful that the person that I’m a hardcore fan of, cares about his fans. He could have just cancelled and moved on. But he didn’t………………………………..

    The short short answer is painfully obvious though…don’t stand in the pit or try and fight your way up front too close unless you plan on receiving some bumps and bruises…Am I right?

    All I can say is if someone is reading these comments is the sort of person who kicks people in the face in mosh pits and throws bottles at the stage, you are not fucking cool. You are a douche bag. And, people shouldn’t have to deal with your dumbass at concerts.

    I remember “back in the day” as my grown kids say, when great concerts were 15-20 bucks. You got to the front so you could share”J bird” w/t band! Bout the only ones needin help were ODs or “bad trips”! Now when I go, I have to stay back (bad ringin in my ears) LMFFAO!!! STILL LOVE IT! ROCK ON ROB!!!!
