    What a life that guy's led. And he just doesn't give a shit about anything. Never heard someone like him before. I wonder what his childhood and parents were like.

    One of his first jobs was drawing for a porno magazine in NYC or something when he was like 19. And he dated that White Zombie bassist who is also an artist/drawer.

    And he's got major hangups with his sets. He said when he loads his stages up to the max with graphics, fire, dancing, etc. he still wants to add more stuff and is never satisfied. The characters he draws and created in his videos are totally wacky (if you've seen "More Human").

    That must have been some sleepover at The Sterns'. They both sound like they were alienated during the visit.

    I haven't listened it. Musically, I still like him. The movies and Howard, it's enough. :eek:

    Too bad we still don't have the story of why Ralph was permanently kicked off the Stern Estate when the Zombies were visiting during a Howard party. (allegedly Ralph was talking shit about Rob's music or movies or something while drunk... but Howard won't say, but allowed Ralph to bring it up, but Ralph didn't want to.).

    Rob Zombie is kind of a shitty artist, but he still consistently follows his personal vision of what works and I respect that. Like, he makes bad B-horror movies, but that's what he likes! So goo fo him.

    He's a vegan you know Howard. And he has no friends, doesn't do drugs. Some rockstar.

    Pretty much, had to fast forward through. Nothing against Rob, seems like an alright guy buy who cares -- he was interesting in '97 because of that god awful soundtrack album that tied into the show. They should have left it at that.

    Solo work is pure shit, White Zombie was brilliant, movies are hit and miss. Haven't heard the interview yet.

    Loved White Zombie. Tried to like his solo stuff but just not as good for some reason.

    I love Zombie. I hang on his every word. He is not only a talented artist, singer, and creator of spectacular stage shows, but the costumes, lighting, sound, all deserve special Oscars, both his concert performances and his movies are incredible to see and each corner you turn there is something new to excite the senses, you never see anything coming, he is a genius and incredibly attractive and thank god Sheri didn't bother coming in and ruining this appearance so Howard could tell her how gorgeous she is and doesn't look a day over 46.

    Rob's cool, even though he hasn't put out a decent record in 15 years and he ruins every movie he makes by putting his wife in them.

    I like Rob. He's very unique and is his own person. Doesn't suck up to anyone. But he's very quirky and wonder how he got that way. Saw him open for Ozzy 2001 and his show was out of control - thought the small basketball arena in El Paso was going to burn down to the ground.

    White Zombie was OK. The solo stuff mostly sucked.

    The Devil's Rejects was pretty good. Everything else sucked. His Halloween II was on of the worst movies ever mad. You can blame it on time constraints all you want, it doesn't matter. It was all him and very single aspect of the movie was beyond awful. There are a ton of movies with a tenth the budget and half the pre-production time that are a thousand times better,

    Still, I don't dislike him. He does his own thing and I respect that.
