Since 1985 Zombie has been carving out a strange legacy of music in the world of rock, beginning in with the formation of his brainchild White Zombie. From the start, White Zombie was a bizarre hybrid of hardcore/punk aggression, Lower East Side art-damage and hard rock thunder. As if that weren’t enough, these fixations were filtered through Mr. Zombie’s love of classic horror/sci-fi films, trash hot rod culture and generally, all things on the dark side.
White Zombie was most noted for their release 'Astro Creep 2000'. The album reached #10 on billboard and stayed for two months. After this record, we started to see a little different style from Zombie. What might best be called Techno-Horror Rock. Since then Zombie has gone solo, simply renaming the band 'Rob Zombie'.
Rob Zombie is a man of many faces. He has done work on the Beavis and Butthead movie, directed all videos since going solo, wrote a script for 'The Crow 3' (which got scrapped), and is currently in the works of creating and directing his first feature film entitled 'House Of 1000 Corpses'. In short, Rob Zombie is an entertaiment genius.
Rob Zombie Interviews and Features

Drummer Tommy Clufetos, who has previously performed alongside Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper, is currently on the road handling drumming duties for Ozzy Osbourne. While taking a break from bringing the new album "Scream" to the masses, Clufetos spoke with me about how he managed to land a gig with Ozzy and what the band will be doing in the coming months. Tommy also hinted at the possibility of another upcoming studio album and explained his own personal history with drumming. More...
Without question one of the most iconic names in the rock and metal scene, Rob Zombie has had a huge impact on the musical landscape. Between working with the legendary White Zombie, moving on to a successful solo career, directing gore-heavy horror flicks, and getting to see Sherri Moon Zombie perform strip teases on something other than a TV screen, Rob lives most metal fan’s dream life.
Rob has been a busy little zombie of late directing “Halloween 2,” releasing the animated film “The Haunted World of El Superbeasto,” and preparing to unleash his new solo album “Hellbilly Deluxe 2.” I recently had the opportunity to take part in a press conference with Rob Zombie where he answered a series of questions about the new album and his plans for upcoming movies.
