I’m a massive fan of Rob Zombie’s films. “The Devil’s Rejects” is one of my all time favorite movies. When I had heard Rob Zombie moved his “Great American Nightmare” from California to Chicago, IL I jumped all over the chance to cover it. Thursday was media day where we got to take a lights on tour of the three haunted houses. Each house was based on one of Zombie’s films.
There are few artists that can compete with Rob Zombie live. You got four guys who are top notch performers. Ginger Fish has had a long career as a journey man drummer, Piggy D has the look, chops and performance skills to own his share of the stage. John 5 is a virtuoso guitarist, but more than that he’s a virtuoso performer. Then there is Rob Zombie. I think non fans would be surprised by how much fun they’d have at a Rob Zombie show. They’re not a metal act, they’re not a pop act, their simply their own thing and it’s a whole lot of fun. It was a great night. I was scared, I was entertained and had a whole lot of fun.
