Tonight the Twins of Evil will rock into Detroit MI to kickstart the Second Coming tour.
Ahead of the opening night show, Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson have put out their cover of The Beatles classic track Helter Skelter. The track, originally appeared on The White Album, but is often associated with Charles Manson who subversively used it to try and promote a race war in the 60’s.

Rob Zombie spoke to Rolling Stone magazine about how the collaboration came together:
We had been talking about doing something together for these shows — that he should come onstage during my set and we’d do a song. But we couldn’t think of what song. After we talked, later that night I was home and I just thought, The obvious song is “Helter Skelter”… It’s so obvious that neither one of us thought of it! And then I figured, well, rather than us just doing it onstage, why don’t we take it one step further and record it and put a new spin on it? That way, rather than just doing some impromptu jam together, now the fans will go, “Oh, there’s the song I’ve already heard, and now they’re doing it.”

Yes Zombieheads, things are quite a lot different around here. Welcome to the brand new look Rob Zombie website. After seven years we have decided to update the theme and redesign certain elements of the site. The design has again been handled by web manager Emma from Nineteen76Designs, after Zombie approved the work.
We have included an updated discography and filmography, with click throughs to more extensive pages about the different films and albums that have been released. We’ve also included information on single releases, as well as looking at other work Zombie has directed. We’ve also gone for a responsive template in the build, to make it easier to read on your device, wherever and whatever you are using.
We have been very lucky also to use an image from Rob Fenn as part of the site’s background. A personal thank you from the web manager for that. There are still a few plans which are being worked on (including a look back at previous big tours with set-lists, past dates etc) but we hope you like it for the site it is now.
Let us know what you think in the comments! And to see how the Filmography and Discography pages have been updated and how to get the most out of them, click read more to see a quick video. Read More
