Biography

Captain Clegg and the Night Creatures are a fictional band that appears in Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2 (H2, 2009).

Captain Clegg is Texas country music singer Jesse Dayton.

Captain Clegg and the Night Creatures back-story:
Captain Cushing Clegg was born in 1968 on a small farm in Sherman, Texas to Cushing Calvin Clegg, Sr and his wife Azel Winnie Donner. “‘Cushing was a royal terror around the sleepy town of Sherman,” Dale Rhoades wrote in The Sherman Daily Journal. “When Cushing, Jr., was three or four years old, he walked into the his elementary school and announced that his name was now The Captain and could only be addressed as such. That was fine with his teachers and school mates, most of who were terrified of the wild, young boy; Cushing was The Captain from then on.”

In 1987, Clegg moved to Austin and for a brief period co-hosted a radio show called The Howling Hootenanny. Then in the early 1990s, Clegg became a hearse driver for Gallows and Graves Funeral Parlor. It was on one of these midnight “corpse runs” that Clegg met the first member of his future band The Night Creatures – drummer Baron Lancing Wounds. Lancing was working as a mortician at a competing parlor of death. The two struck up a friendship over their love of “dead things” and The Night Creatures were born. Soon, Clegg and Wounds stumbled upon an out of work gravedigger and part-time bass player named Lord Victor Ward. Ward was immediately drafted into The Night Creatures and the core of the band nucleus was complete.

    They can't be COMPLETELY fictional if they're on a real tour with Zombie right now, right?
