Rob Zombie interviewed in Canada
Rob Zombie was interviewed in Canada whilst on tour with Slayer.
CTV spoke to Rob about many topics including his current live show and the state of the music industry at this time.
“A lot’s changed in the last five years,” he sighs. “Back then we were thinking, I wonder where all the record stores are going to be? Then we realised, nowhere. People were still buying CDs then. They’re not doing that any more. “Young bands come up to me all the time and ask me for advice. I don’t even know how they’re going to do it. So many of the tools that were so prominent, like MTV, aren’t there any more. At the same time, when we were breaking there was no Internet. There was no Facebook. You were at the mercy of your record company to give a sh*t. Now, if you’re industrious, you can be in charge of your own career. I don’t know if they’ll be selling out arenas, but they can keep themselves from going bankrupt. My goal was to be able to survive off making music. Anything after that was gravy.”
