"It's called 'Hurry Up and Finish It'," jokes Rob Zombie of his in-progress third album. The follow-up to 2001's "The Sinister Urge" features the shock rocker backed by an all-star band: guitarist Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit), drummer Tommy Lee (Motley Crue) and bassist Chris Chaney (ex-Jane's Addiction).

"It's very raw and very live," says Zombie. He's worked up about twenty-five songs for the album so far and plans to return to the studio in the fall when he finishes his stint on this summer's Ozzfest.

Zombie most recently took the stage for the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel and Casino's tenth anniversary. Fronting Los Angeles cover band Camp Freddy, he did a version of the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated." "I've never done a Ramones song before," says Zombie, who hosted last year's star-studded tribute to the groundbreaking punk rockers in L.A. "It's kind of weird, because [late Ramones guitarist] Johnny was my best friend."

The rocker-turned-filmmaker's second movie, "The Devil's Rejects," hits theaters July 22nd. The sequel to Zombie's 2003 blood-soaked "House of 1000 Corpses" stars William Forsythe as a vigilante sheriff on the trail of the murderous Firefly family. Unlike the first installment, which featured an original soundtrack by Zombie, this slasher will showcase the rootsy stylings of the Allman Brothers and Lynryd Skynyrd.

The most sad thing about limpbizkit has always been their front mans miserable attempt at lyrics and rapping, the simple song structures didnt help either. The bassist, drummer and guitarist are actually all on or above par. Borland and Otto in specific.

Chaney I know less about other than he played on Janes addictions final album 'Strays' and has been a much touted touring bassist. Being a bassist on a much more "for fun" basis, I can say that he's got the chops to make the low end on a zombie record sound excellent.

And everyones pretty familiar with Tommy Lee being more or less the sole source of genuine (drum, his other sh** is the sound of a million wounded horses screaming) talent in the demented trainwreck that is Motley Crue.

So long as Rob can keep the Lees (Tommy Lee to an audiance at a Motley Crue reunion show with his wheels of steel "are you feeling me?" obviously, he was rubbing the audiance the wrong way, as many streamed out the door) turn tables out of the room all will be well.
