In the case of Rob Zombie, I just don’t know what to expect from the man. His previous appearance in Denmark took place in 1995 – and that was with White Zombie, so my frame of reference is extremely limited. (more…)

Rob Zombie…did everything right this evening. From opener “Jesus Frankenstein” to the encore “Dragula”, he showed everybody how a true professional works an arena. Zombie’s stage rap was both funny and crowd pleasing. (more…)

ZOMBIE-FIED! by Frank DeBlase
Rob Zombie’s brutal creativity is spread equally over his music and films. Both aspects of his career bleed with a visceral cult verve and classic B-movie horror. Zombie’s work is over the top. Whether rocking the stage with his trademark metal/industrial kerrang or getting his slasher ya-ya’s out on film, one look, one listen and you know it’s Zombie. (more…)
With just days to go until the Twins of Evil tour starts, Rob Zombie has spoken to The Topeka Capital Journal (CJOnline) about the tour, whether he watches his own movies and a lot more besides. Enjoy!

Rob Zombie’s Rock Advice: Lose the ‘Tude, Trust Thyself by Kenny Herzog
Despite White Zombie’s large cult following and well-documented endorsement from Beavis and Butt-Head, it’s unlikely that few pop-culture observers circa 1993 would have preserved images of barking, dreadlocked frontman Rob Zombie in a time capsule. But nearly 20 years later, the unlikely rock star and horror film auteur has not only survived, but thrived, continuing to release music (the UME remix album Mondo Sex Head is out August 7), movies, and, touring.

Video after the drop
Fuse TV recently caught up Rob Zombie to chat about his tour stories and what they got back was some eye opening and pretty intense tales.
From Fuse TV:
Rob Zombie, prolific metal musician and filmmaker, has seen a lot of crazy stuff during his 25 years on tour, so we sat down with him to hear about the absolute craziest moments. Like this one: “One time, I think it was in Florida, this guy showed up with a gun and killed his girlfriend outside the show and then killed himself. That was a good one.” Oof.

With Rob Zombie set to wrap up touring with Megadeth this weekend at Rocklahoma, before going into the studio with the band to make his next album, he just had time to catch up with Tulsa World where he explained the show he plans to put on for the fans.
Rob Zombie promises Rocklahoma fans ‘monstrously huge’ show by Gene Triplett from NewsOK.com
This year’s Rocklahoma festival should be one of the biggest yet, with Rob Zombie, Megadeth and Theory of a Deadman on Saturday and Chickenfoot, Queensryche and Jackyl dominating Sunday.
Organizers expect attendance to top 20,000 a day, more than the 35,000 total attendance the 2011 show drew, according to Joe Litvag, AIG Live senior vice president of the Midwest Region.
“One of the things I really admire about Rocklahoma is that we here in America finally have a premiere rock festival again,” said David Ellefson, bassist, backing vocalist and co-founder of Los Angeles thrash-metal veterans Megadeth.
“When I was growing up in Minnesota in a rural area, and I remember there were all these festivals – Iowa Jam, Texxas Jam, California Jam. America had real rock ‘n’ roll festivals, you know, multiple days, big events, and all the biggest bands would go play ‘em. And then by the time we got into the ’80s, and certainly by the ’90s, those were gone.” (more…)

Theatrical Rob Zombie ready to bring some controversy to Sioux City by Laura Johnson
Call Rob Zombie anything – spawn of Satan, master of horror, in need of a shower – just don’t call him lazy.
This year alone he’s touring with longtime friends Megadeth along with playing multiple music festivals, wrapping up his latest film “The Lords of Salem” and planning to record a new album. Rolling through Sioux City Thursday for a quick tour stop, Zombie took time to talk about how he balances it all.
“I just go from one thing to the next to the next,” Zombie said in a recent phone interview. “I was just in post-production of my movie. Now I have to put it on ice for a bit to go on tour.”
He said the biggest problem is just not having enough time in the day to get it all done. Take touring with heavy-metal rockers Megadeth. The last they time they hooked up in concert it was the 1990s.
“I’m surprised it took so long for us to play together again,” Zombie said. “I don’t know why anything takes so long – just one of those things.” (more…)

Rob Zombie Q&A: Horror-rocker talks touring, his new movie ‘Lords of Salem’ and directing commercials by John Serba
Rob Zombie is one of heavy metal’s true Renaissance men.
He’s widely recognized as the dreadlocked, platform-booted former lead singer of White Zombie, and now the frontman of his solo band, currently in its 14th year. He’s also a visual artist, in two different mediums: Most notably, a film director, having helmed “House of 1000 Corpses” and two “Halloween” remakes in his horror oeuvre, along with several mainstream TV commercials. He also designs all the album artwork for his music projects (and famously designed the set of MTV’s “Headbanger’s Ball” in the early 1990s).
Right now, as Zombie’s band – featuring bassist Piggy D., guitarist John 5 and drummer Ginger Fish – stomps through two weeks’ worth of tour dates co-headlining with Megadeth, he has major film and music projects on the front burner. His next horror film,“The Lords of Salem,” which he wrote and directed, is in post-production, and will tentatively be released later this year. And he has studio time booked starting June 1 for his next album, the follow-up to 2010’s “Hellbilly Deluxe 2.” (more…)
