“As you get older, you see that time becomes more precious and you try to jam more into it.”

It certainly has been a very busy year for Rob Zombie – a movie, a book, an album, a soundtrack, planning a two week Halloween extravaganza, writing the next movie script and now on tour across the US for Mayhem 2013. Metal Hammer sat with Rob after the first week of the Mayhem tour and chatted about “his next project- Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare–a fifteen-night, bone-chilling Halloween experience going down this October just outside of Los Angeles” and much more besides.

QOTW: The early days in WZ by M Tragedy666

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.

Zombiehead Inc member M Tragedy666Question: 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…)
