Rob Zombie Interview
Rob Zombie News
Rob talks about how his musical career differs from his film career when it comes to his fans. He’s now as well known for his film work as he is his recordings. “The music fans I can pretty much spot them, but like when some guy comes up to me in an elevator and he looks like a Lawyer or something, which I have to get to grips with that...so when normal people come up and they’re like “Oh man I’m so into this and that”...I figured like Heavy Metal Music is very specific but everybody likes movies so you can never spot the [movie] fans.”
Rob explains how his early bands use to play around with video cameras “We had a super 8 camera so we’d make crappy super 8 movies but none of it seemed realistic, I thought my life was gonna be worlds worst bike messenger in New York City, that seemed to be what I was destined for”.
“Me and my friends were sort of into Punk Rock like in a place where on one knew what that was and the day we graduated we were hanging out around McDonalds and the main asshole Jock kid came up, who would be your worst enemy started saying “Hey man I’m going to college, where do you guys get like your cool clothes and stuff?” I’m like wait a minute it was 4 years of torture from you and your Douchebag friends and now the day we graduate….so that’s when everyone is so fucking insecure it doesn’t matter and then the next day I was like “I don’t care any more”.
