Launch Radio Networks reports: As Ozzfest 2005 kicks off today in Mansfield, Massachusetts, former main stage performer ROB ZOMBIE will headline the festival's second stage for the first time. Zombie told Launch that getting close to the fans on the smaller second stage has been on his mind for a while. "That's been something I've wanted to do for like — I remember I first mentioned that about three years ago to Ozzy, and he thought it was a crazy idea and he kept begging me not to do it," he said. "Even this year, they tried to get me back on the main stage, but I didn't want to do it. Ozzfest is a fun vibe, but you always feel like the second stage is having all the fun, 'cause main stage is a very uptight situation. Basically, you know, if I'm gonna do it, I want it to be fun."
Zombie's touring band this summer features former MARILYN MANSON guitarist John 5, longtime bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson and ex-ALICE COOPER drummer Tommy Clufetos.
The Ozzfest 2005 lineup also includes BLACK SABBATH, IRON MAIDEN, MUDVAYNE and, on the last eight dates, VELVET REVOLVER.
Zombie isn't supporting a new album this summer, but he is promoting his second effort as a screenwriter and director. His highly anticipated horror movie, "The Devil's Rejects", arrives in theatres on July 22.
