Rob Zombie

Rob Zombie, or Robert Bartlet Cummings to his friends and family, is an American songwriter, performer, screenwriter, film director/producer and all around Renaissance man, with an estimated fifteen million album sales and several motion pictures on his resume. Born in Haverhill, Massachusetts on January 12, 1965, Cummings became fascinated with horror movies and shock rock at an early age, and launched his music career in New York City, where he founded the art-noise-metal band White Zombie in 1985 with girlfriend/bassist Sean Yseult. The band cycled through numerous lineups while developing their sound with a batch of independent releases, before signing with Geffen Records in 1991, via A&R executive Michael Alago, who years earlier had brought Metallica to Elektra. White Zombie’s major label debut, ‘La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Volume One,’ arrived in March of 1992 and took an entire year to enter the Billboard charts, but it grew into a cult sensation thanks to MTV and features in ‘Beavis & Butthead,’ until it had sold over two million copies. Its 1995 follow-up, the industrially-influenced ‘Astro-Creep 2000,’ performed even better and gave Rob the confidence to break up the band and launch his solo career on 1998’s triple-platinum ‘Hellbilly Deluxe.’ Zombie then shifted some of his attention to his other passion — horror movies — and the third millennium has found him splitting his time between further Rob Zombie solo albums (including 2001’s ‘The Sinister Urge’ and 2010’s ‘Hellbilly Deluxe 2’), touring, and film projects like 2003’s ‘House of 1000 Corpses’ and 2007’s remake of the horror classic ‘Halloween.’
