Biography

(1998 – present)

Rob Zombie was born as Robert Cummings in Haverhill, Massachusetts on January 12, 1965. He was the former lead singer for the rock/metal group White Zombie, and later became a successful solo artist, disbanding the group after his first solo album, the 1998 release Hellbilly Deluxe, sold more in the first week than any of the band’s albums ever did. Remixes of some of its tracks were released on 1999’s American Made Music To Strip By, followed up by the studio release The Sinister Urge in 2001.

In 2003 he made his directorial debut with the release of the film ‘House of 1000 Corpses’ to a lukewarm reception, though it garnered quite a cult-following. Its sequel, ‘The Devil’s Rejects,’ was released in 2005. It was received much better than the first film, even getting the ‘thumbs up’ from well-known film critic Roger Ebert. Also in his films is his wife Sheri Moon Zombie.

In March 2006, he released his newest album, entitled “Educated Horses”. The album was a more stripped down, raw rock record, and quite a departure from the techno-industrial feel of the old Zombie albums. While this change, along with Zombie’s change of appearance (he lost the dreadlocks and went back to his natural hair color, blonde), upset many of his fans, it allowed Rob to experiment with his style without deviating from his core fan base.

The new album also featured two new band members. John 5, of Marilyn Manson fame, and Tommy Clufetos, the former drummer for Ted Nugent and Alice Cooper, replaced Mike Riggs and John Tempesta, who had left the band in 2003 to work on other projects.

    Блять, чё за страшилище. Только орет всякую чушь про кровь и сотону, каким фрикам это нравится. Вообще шок-рок = херня полная, да если хорошо подумать - рок в целом говно (исключение составляет красивый сентиментальный рок типа Cinema Bizarre, Blink 182, иногда HIM). А зомби этого - накол вместе с Брайаном Уорнером и Кимом Петерсеном.

    Он не может в хорошую музыку, а в кино - и подавно. Образ себе известный сделал разве что.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTMpwLaJTMc Ok, I might have been wrong about how he is live...this cover of Am I Evil? with Christina Scabbia is pretty nice, and I don't even care for classic metal!

    Does anybody else get excited when they stumble upon movies that Rob Zombie gets sampling from? Had that experience with Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS (via Cinema Snob) and Rifftrax of City of the Dead, love his sampling.

    V be more mediocre. that meat beat manifesto megamix from Mondo Sex Head is pretty cool, can't say much about the rest of the remixes though.

    v He's kinda always been more style than substance, it's a lot more obvious with his material outside of Hellbilly Deluxe....but he's fun and definitely wants to be an entertainer above all else. His audience at the shows always seem to like it, so I would say he's doing it right.

    I have two tickets (Golden Circle) to Rob Zombie in Aerodrome Festival Prague 2014 (June) that I am wanting to sell separately or as a pair. I'm willing to negotiate a price. CHEAP!
