This weekend, do yourself a favour and pop into your local newsagent and pick up this weeks issue of Kerrang!. Adorning the inside pages this week, you will see none other than ROB ZOMBIE talking about, amongst other things, the forthcoming sold out UK tour- his first visit here in 12 years.
“That tour is going to be awesome“, he tells the mag, “Honestly, expect the greatest show you will ever see. I haven’t been over to Europe for so long so I want to do the real show as big as it can be. And the real show is ridiculous” .
Talking about why he feels the need to go all out, he continues, “…the rock stars I see today look like well groomed little children. And everyone still seems ashamed of actually being a rock star. When grunge came in, rappers became the new rock stars- they had the girls, the cars the furs the diamonds, everything was larger than life. Now it’s the pop stars who are the rock stars: you’ll see a Lady Gaga show…and go ‘Holy fuck!’ and that never happens at rock shows anymore…Wouldn’t it be nice if the rock stars started being the rock stars again?”
