On July 20, Rob Zombie spoke to the Albany, New York radio stationQ103 about his plans to capture his band’s current live show for an upcoming concert DVD.
“[Doing a concert DVD] always seemed like a huge nuisance, truthfully,”Rob said. “We had a live record and that took a million years to do. And a live DVD, for some reason to me, always seems like a nuisance, because after the show is done, I don’t care. I don’t want to relive it. I mean, a certain member of the band films every show and wants to watch it immediately after the show. And it aggravates the fuck out of me. Who gives a shit? The show is over, I don’t care. I never wanna har about it again, I never wanna see it again. Like, I never watch anything — a TV show I’ve been on; I don’t care. Once it’s done, it’s done. But I figured at least once we should film it.”
He continued: “We’ve had so many big crazy stage shows over the last many, many years. And we never filmed anything with [Rob‘s former band]WHITE ZOMBIE back then. I mean, there’s little clips here and there, like [footage from] Brazilian television or something…
He added: “We haven’t [filmed any footage for the concert DVD] yet. We’re gonna do it in Texas when we get to Texas [on the currentRockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival], but who knows?! I may change my mind at the last minute.”
Zombie recently gave an update on the progress of his next movie as a writer and director, “Broad Street Bullies”, about the Philadelphia Flyers hockey team of the 1970s that were famous for beating the Soviet Union’s team at the time and notorious for their violent tactics on the ice.Zombie said about the project, “As of right now, the script is done, ’cause that was a long process, putting a script together. And we’re just sort of putting the financing together, putting the structure of the film together, all the boring stuff, and also beginning the early process of casting, trying to figure out who’s gonna play who and what’s gonna happen.”
Zombie plans to shoot most of the movie in Philadelphia.
Zombie‘s most recent film, “The Lords Of Salem”, will be out on Blu-ray and DVD on September 3.
Zombie‘s fifth solo album, “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor”, was released in April and entered the Billboard album chart at No. 7 with first-week sales of 34,000 copies.
METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich has revealed that there has been talk about his band touring with fellow rock giants U2 and GREEN DAY.
In an interview with MTV News, Ulrich said: “U2 came to San Francisco two summers ago and we ended up having a lot to drink with them and GREEN DAY following a dinner.
“I was told in the wee morning hours following this outing that members of U2, GREEN DAY andMETALLICA agreed to tour together. We haven’t talked about it since, but speaking for myself, I’d be very up for that.”
In a 2010 interview with Australia’s Faster Louder, Ulrich referred to himself as “the hugestU2 fan — I would borderline call myself a groupie, actually,” he said. He added: “Playing withU2… I would fucking play on the parking lot. They’re one of the only other bands that are still functioning after 30 years, just like we are, and I feel a lot of kinship in what they do and I just really admire and appreciate… They’re really inspiring to me. I love their music, I love their way of reinventing themselves, and I love their way or thinking big and small. And it sort of works on all levels.”
Florida-based death metal veterans SIX FEET UNDER have parted ways with drummer Kevin Talley and have replaced him with Marco Pitruzzella.
