On 13 November, 2001, Rob Zombie released The Sinister Urge – his second solo album. The album title was borrowed from the Ed Wood movie of the same name released in 1961. Rob Zombie has been sharing his memories of the album and the music videos for it:
Today marks 18 years since the release of my second solo album The Sinister Urge. This was the last album with the Hellbilly lineup. I had many guests on the record including Tommy Lee on drums, Kerry King blasts a solo on Dead Girl Superstar, Phil X ( now with Bon Jovi) on guitar, Chris Chaney from Jane’s Addiction on Bass, Josh Freese from Devo on drums and Ozzy Osbourne on guest vocal. Along with those amazing folks I had legendary Mix Master Mike from the Beastie Boys and DJ Lethal from House of Pain adding to the grooves. Many of the tracks we still play in concert including House of 1000 Corpses, Never Gonna Stop, Scum of the Earth and Demon Speeding. A few interesting video facts: the videos for Feel So Numb and Never Gonna Stop feature many of my film regulars including Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley, Sid Haig , Tom Towles, Chad Bannon, Irwin Keyes, Jen Jostyn and Chris Hardwick. Can you spot them? What’s your favorite track?
