Zombie lends his voice to Puppy Rescue Mission campaign

Rob Zombie Puppy Rescue Mission

Last summer, while on the Mayhem tour, Rob Zombie met up with the folks at the Puppy Rescue Mission charity – which helps dogs rescued by soldiers while on their tour of duty – animals that not only give the soldiers much needed bonds, but whom have also saved the soldiers. Said Rob of the campaign last year: “… soldiers in Afghanistan would find these dogs and bond with them and sneak them on the bases, even though they weren’t supposed to have them.  It was probably the only moment of sanity for these guys, when they spent time with them….But they weren’t allowed to take them home, and if they could, it was so expensive. That was a cause I could really understand and get behind.”

To that end he has narrated a video campaign, directed by Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival documenter Strati Hovartos, to bring more light on this wonderful charity. The video features a cast of active duty and veteran warriors.

Rob Zombie answers fans questions about his voice following RockFest

Rob Zombie voice

Following Rob Zombie’s sudden withdrawal from the stage, after two songs, at RockFest this saturday, it is understandable fans were upset at missing a full show from the band – something Rob is as much saddened by, having played through thick and thin for the past 29 years.  However as the following statement from Rob says, this was not something he did lightly and he hopes these words may go some way to state why he had to stop the show early.

From Rob Zombie:

I am very sorry to everyone who was at RockFest. Believe it or not this is the first time in 29 years I have not been able to finish a show. I have played through many many nights with a fucked voice. I knew it backstage but came out and tried anyway, but failed. I understand people are pissed, but what can you do? It is easy to say “man up and just do it” but when no sound is coming out there is nothing you can do. If you have ever lost your voice before, then you know it doesn’t magically return just because you want it to. If there was a way to do the show I would have done it, as I have many, many times before. Fuck, I done shows where I walked to the side of the stage between songs to vomit I was so sick. Whatever. I’m not looking for sympathy and I don’t expect anyone care but these are the facts.  (more…)
