Rob Zombie Talks About Touring and Hockey
Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson recently revealed their plans for their “Twins of Evil” Tour which will stop in 28 cities across the United States which will end in Dallas on October 31st and you can only imagine how crazy that show is going to be since it falls on Halloween.
Recently, Zombie chatted with Noisecreep about his new album and his surprising love for hockey!
When asked if he was excited about his upcoming album he said: “I really am. I wasn't sure if it was time for another record like this but there's been a resurgence in this kind of music so the timing seemed pretty good to do another one. I think my music translates well into remixes like this because of the groove. My music over the years, regardless of guitars or what vocals were laid on top, the underlying groove was always pretty heavy. So no matter what gets put over it, the groove remains pretty true to what it was so I think that's why it works.”
The performer then explained his attachment to the winter sport that is largely popular in Canada: “I grew up on the East Coast. As a kid I was a huge hockey fan. I mean, I'm wearing a Boston Bruins jersey in my kindergarten class photo, so I was into hockey at a really young age. It's kind of an east coast thing, if you grew up around Boston or New York or Philly it was like growing up in Canada when it came to hockey. It's a great story. I've been researching it like crazy – I'll be the ultimate Philadelphia Flyers expert by the time I'm done. The story is crazy – it reads like fiction – I just love it.”
It’s always cool to learn something new and different about an artist, especially when it seems so far removed from their on-stage persona. Pretty cool!
