Wow! It’s been a while since we did one of these.
Sit back and enjoy this fantastic Question of the Week from ZombieHead Inc member M Tragedy666 about the early days of White Zombie and how bands have to market themselves to gain promotion.
Question: Hi Rob. I read one of your recent interviews and it inspired a question. I hope to hear your take in this… But, how did it happen for you? The transition from local band to a signed act that is opening for Pantera and on huge festivals touring the world? I know it takes hard work and there is no short cuts…but I was wondering if a scout for the label happened to see you and liked what they saw? Which means there was a bit of luck involved. Or did you guys just build your fanbase on a local level till you were headlining all the local clubs and it just kept getting bigger and bigger until it exploded?
I don’t know if the local scene is anything like it used to be in the late 80′s, but it’s pretty shitty now. You work your ass off promoting and trying to write cool songs. No one cares. Some people show up. Other times it’s nearly empty rooms. Occasionally, you’ll get a good crowd that really digs it and might buy some merch. (more…)
Another week rolls by and another Question of the Week is asked by a fan and answered by Rob Zombie. This time thanks goes to Zombiehead member Jason_Frey who asked Rob the following question about any future Halloween movies.
Enjoy. And see at the bottom of the item how it could be you next!
Question: Hi Rob, you had such a interesting take on Micheal Myers and imo brought out his aggresive and real side. I know they are coming out with Halloween3d what happened with your involvement with the Halloween series? Was there ever a plan for a 3rd movie from you? Or was it just like the Devils Rejects 2 and done? Are you gonna watch the Halloween 3d movie? Did you have any input on this subject?
Answer from Rob Zombie: Even though I feel like I’ve been very clear on this subject there always seems to be some confusion so I will set the record straight again. I am not and have never been involved in Halloween 3. I don’t know anything about the project and what is happening with it. I did all I ever wanted to do with Halloween and it is time for me to move onto other things. As far as watching the 3rd movie, who knows? If it looks cool and my friends are in it I guess I will watch it.

This week Zombiehead Inc member CorpseReject has asked Rob a question about House of 1000 Corpses.
Enjoy. And see at the bottom of the item how it could be you next
Question: I absolutely love this movie. Every aspect of it….they way it was shot, the brilliant use of colors, the characters…and so on. My question is this…do you ever think that you may make another Firefly family movie possibly including a little of the family history? The entire dungeon, underground tunnels, Dr Satan’s operating rooms and the “patients” he worked on are something that I have wanted to see more of from the first time I saw the movie. The Professor, the Skunk Ape and his wife, the spirits in the house the Mother Firefly mentions…all of these seem like something that could make another awesome movie. You are the expert though I guess. (more…)
This week’s question comes from Zombie Head Inc member Timothy H who asks about touring with the band as a roadie.

Gather round and round ‘em up, we have another Question of the Week answered for you by Rob Zombie. This weeks question comes from Zombie Head Inc member JRoTown.
Question: Rob, what’s your take on this?
I can see where camera flashes could leave a person blinded and when there’s so much going on it could lead to some serious injuries with all the pyro going off, people rushing the stage, falls…etc…
So, what do you think? Leave the camera at home or just remember the event for what it is through your own eyes? (more…)
