On 28 March, 2006, Rob Zombie released his third solo album to the world: Educated Horses.
Released 5 years after The Sinister Urge, it came out after Zombie had spent time cultivating his career as a film director.
Educated Horses was the first to feature John 5 on guitar and also saw drummer Tommy Clufetos joining the band. In a recent Instagram post celebrating the 14th anniversary, Zombie noted “It was the only record to feature the lineup of John Five, Blasko and Tommy Clufetos.”
John 5 also commented on Zombie’s anniversary post, noting his favorite track from the album:
Let it all bleed out is my favorite, I remember I was doing tracks for this record but wasn’t in the band yet I was so excited thank you RZ for letting me stick aroundJohn 5 – Instagram: 28 March 2020
The album debuted at number 5 on the Billboard charts and the track The Lords of Salem was nominated for a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance of 2008. Four music videos were released, including two animated videos for The Lords of Salem and American Witch featuring animation from David Hartman.
