A new documentary called “Hired Gun” is currently in post production. “Hired Gun is a compelling film about a unique fraternity of musicians that possess uncommon musical ability, but who made a conscious decision to make a living playing music in relative obscurity. Occasionally, one of them makes the big time and becomes a star in their own right.”
For the documentary, Rob Zombie is interviewed with friend and right hand man John 5 (still from interview above).

In an audio interview with KWSS, The Louvau Show, Zombie shares his thoughts on the music industry and fellow musicians, who he says “have this real talent for doing the absolute dumbest things to their careers that they could possibly do. You give them two choices and they’re always going to pick the wrong one.”
He also speaks about his current line-up and what he is like to work with. Zombie guitarist John 5 also takes part.
