A great piece of video from our friends at Loudwire where Rob Zombie plays ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’ As Loudwire explains: “We’ve got an amazing guest for this week’s edition of ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’. The legendary Rob Zombie sat down with us to prove or disprove what’s written about him on Wikipedia!
This turned out to be one of our favorite all-time episodes. We dove into Rob Zombie’s entire lifespan, digging up some falsehoods along the way. We start off talking with Rob about who he wanted to emulate as a child. He also set the record straight on a chaotic event which took place at a carnival during his youth. Zombie’s family were carnival workers by trade, but due to patrons getting pissed off over rigged games, one carnival went up in flames while guns were being fired in a state of all-out anarchy.”
Watch the video above and enjoy as Rob delves into the line between fact and fiction.

It has been reported that White Zombie drummer Phil Buerstatte was found dead in Madison, Wisconsin this past weekend.
Phil was drummer for White Zombie from 1992 to 1994. He played on the La Sexorcisto tour, as well as playing on tracks “Feed The Gods” on The Airheads Soundtrack, “Children of the Grave” and “I AM HELL” from the Beavis and Butthead soundtrack.
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…)
