And at the end of this question find out how to get your question in with a chance to be picked by Rob Zombie.
Question: Went to the la crosse show. drove about 4.5 hours. My question is. Do any band members have any CONCERN when there is someone laying in a POOL of BLOOD right in front of the stage and that people well over 150 lbs or more are thrown over the tops of people that dont see them coming and then get KICKED in the face have a full grown person come down on top of you . While magadeth played a guy was thrown over the rail in front and landed on his head on the cement and layed there almost 10 min in a pool of blood Dave M was more into looking at the girl who showed her ass after she made it to the front. He never even gave the guy. A FAN a second look while that fan lay in his own blood.. I may be old and un cool for what i say but I did not pay over $200.00 bucks to watch people have life changing injuries and be around a bunch of fucking RETARDS. I love Rob and his band .they are all that and by far have the coolist show out there but the way people act is more then childish and so fucking wrong. Tell me how can you enjoy a show when the whole time you have to look behind yourself for incoming people that have know brains . What is cool about having people hurt to a point there life may never be the same. OVER A CONCERT> WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW
Answer from Rob: Obviously I am concerned with the safety of our fans, but I can’t control what some people will do. Anytime I see someone hurt or crushed I bring it to the attention of our crew or security. It is the rare incident where I have stopped the show because of this, but it has happened. Seriously though sometimes from the point of view of the stage it is hard to see what is exactly going on out in the chaos of the crowd.
I guess there is no right answer since the same guy who is gonna kick you in the face is most likely the same guy who is going to throw something at the stage. Basically fans have to exercise some brain power over their actions. No concert is worth ending up in a wheelchair for the experience.
