Formed: 1985
From: New York, NY, United States
Last Known Status: Active

Background

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 Film Icon Sid Haig Has Died At Age 80

Sid Haig, the actor best-known as as the iconic character Captain Spaulding in Rob Zombie’s movies, has passed away at the age of 80.

Haig died on Saturday, September 21, according to a post shared by his wife Susan L. Oberg via her Instagram:

“On Saturday, September 21, 2019, my light, my heart, my true love, my King, the other half of my soul, Sidney, passed from this realm on to the next,” reads the statement.

“He has returned to the Universe, a shining star in her heavens. He was my angel, my husband, my best friend and always will be. He adored his family, his friends and his fans. This came as a shock to all of us.

“We, as a family, are asking that our privacy and time to mourn be respected.

“Goodnight, my love. We will find each other again, next time. I love you.”

Haig was admitted to hospital after a “nasty spill” a week ago but suffered serious breathing complications afterwards. The actor was then transferred to the ICU but despite reports his condition improving, his health got worse.

The scary movie icon’s final Rob Zombie movie "3 From Hell" just recently premiered in theaters.

Rob Zombie And Marilyn Manson To Tour Together

Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson have announced that they will once again team up for another edition of their "Twins Of Evil" tour, dubbed "Twins Of Evil - Hell Never Dies." The tour will kick off in Baltimore and include appearances at Rock Fest in Cadott, WI and Rock USA in Oshkosh, WI. Tickets go on sale on Friday. A video message from the duo can be seen below.

Both artists have been hard at work on their new albums, while Rob Zombie has also been putting the finishing touches on his new film, "Three From Hell," the sequel to his 2005 film, "The Devil's Rejects," which itself is a sequel to the 2003 movie, "House Of 1000 Corpses."

The two previously toured together in 2012, during which several bitter incidents occurred between the two, beginning with a Tweet from Manson which read: "Sorry to Chicago for not getting to play 'Beautiful People.' You can sing it in between Zombie songs, his band has already played it." Manson also accused Zombie of cutting into his set and claimed he was going to, "Beat his ass twice... Maybe three times." Zombie responded with a series of expletives aimed at Manson onstage, before posting a message on Facebook which read:

"I don't get it. Christ, I've known some of his crew for 20 fucking years and some of his crew used work for me. It's all good. No one would fuck with someone's show. It is ridiculous ... Well, of course, I felt the need to respond to the 'kick my ass remark.' Who wouldn't? Although I wish I had kept it backstage and kept the fans out of it. It is all 4th grade fight after school nonsense of which I have never dealt with on tour before. Co-headlining tours always go smooth because everything is cut 50/50 and I mean everything. No one fucks with anyone's show. It is even fucking Steven. I've done it co-headlining tours many times before and have had no troubles."

The tour dates are as follows: More...
