Eclectic Rock Pick of the Week: Rob Zombie
I’ve been a fan of Rob Zombie since middle school but for those of you who don’t know who he is or what he brings to the table, you are about to blown away!
If you saw Alice Cooper at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena a couple years ago then you may remember that Rob opened up for Alice. I was lucky enough to meet both of these ridiculously talented men prior to the show. Don’t let their dramatic creepy stage performances fool you, they are two of the nicest guys I have met in the business!
I also wanted to mention that I performed a dance to Zombie’s song “Dragula” with my former dance team in Syracuse and had a great experience trying to create visually what Zombie is portraying musically.
Rob Zombie first came on our radar as the lead singer of the band White Zombie in the 80’s and then started his solo career gaining popularity in the 90’s. He is also a film director, screen writer and film producer.
As you may have noticed, many of his songs have an underlying theme based on sci fi and horror flicks. To put Rob Zombie in one classification of music would be a little difficult but if I had to name a few, industrial metal, horror punk, and heavy metal would be a few. Let me know if you are a fan and why or why not?!
