Rob Zombie: “Someone Who Likes My Movies Might Hate Fucking Rock Music”

Metal Hammer has released an excerpt of their interview with Rob Zombie, in this months December issue of the magazine.  Enjoy!

Rob Zombie, who currently fronts our new issue with his Twin Of Evil Marilyn Manson, recently spoke to us about juggling his career as a musician with more recent ventures as a film director. Here’s what the man had to say: “I try to keep both going. I used to do one or the other. I would do a movie that would take me away for two years, then I would come back and do some touring. I always felt like I had to re-fire up the music because you lose the momentum.

“But, in the last couple of years I was doing both, where I’d be touring, and I’d shoot the movie but not edit the movie, then go tour some more, and come back and work on the movie and do some more touring. I was trying to keep all the balls in the air, juggling, and it works better, but it’s difficult. When I am actually shooting a movie I don’t think about anything else. The schedule is so out of control I don’t want to hear about music. If someone was like, ‘Oh, let me play this song for you.’ Well, I don’t give a shit.  I don’t even want to hear it. But, for the most part.  I try to keep things bouncing at all times.

“The movies are everywhere, they have a huge reach compared to the music, so in a way, the movie fans and music fans are quite different. Because, someone who likes the movies might hate fucking rock music. They might listen to country music, but they like horror movies,. So, it really reaches a wide base, it’s pretty weird.”
