Rob Zombie Brought The Party- And Special Guests- To OZZFEST Watch Nikki Sixx and Marilyn Manson Join Rob Zombie On Stage for "Helter Skelter"
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…Rob Zombie followed with a party of his own. He joked with the audience that he had a rough time the night before at a hotel party in Reno, so he told the front row to watch out for projectile vomit. Nonetheless, the Astro Creep woke from the dead, boogying in his bell bottoms to his disco thrash metal.
Like a freakishly scary carnival, we were along for the fun and the frights as movie clips from horror films that he directed, creepy cartoon clowns and anal probing aliens were just a few of the bizarre visuals projected behind the wild mad hatter.
His performance was a mix of song throughout his career. Songs from his first band White Zombie were played along with many of his popular tracks from his solo albums. 20 foot puppet demons and a huge gorilla with a tiny space helmet danced around the stage as “Never Gonna Stop”, “Thunder Kiss 65” and “Living Dead Girl” were played back to back to back.
Shortly thereafter he invited Nikki Sixx of Motely Crew and Marilyn Manson to join him to cover the Beatles “Helter Skelter” as Charles Manson doing weird shit was projected on the back screens. This collaboration had the audience losing its shit. His covers of “Blitzkreig Bop” by the Ramones and Alice Cooper’s “Schools Out” also tore the house down as his versions were were drenched in metal adaptations. With fans ravenous for more, Rob and company were called back for an encore and they raised the roof with the legendary “Dragula.”…”
