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…)
Roll up! Roll Up! Gather round the camp fire kiddies. Here’s the first Question of the Week answered by Rob. Thank you to Zombie Head Inc member Something_WEiRd for their question:
Question: I hope this question doesnt upset you (Rob Zombie) because it doesnt seem like you liked to be asked about White Zombie but why did they break up? well , thats not really my question, my real question is Have you ever thought about reconciling with the members of White Zombie and patch things up? You guys have been through so much, don’t you miss them? Ive heard in numerous interviews that you have not spoken to any of the members of the band since the breakup about 16 years ago. (more…)
