Happy Birthday today (Jan. 12) to Rob Zombie. The shock rocker is 54. Also celebrating is Rage Against the Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha (49).
Zombie rose to fame in the early 90’s with his band White Zombie. The band’s third album, La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Volume One, was certified multi-platinum in 1993 with the strength of the lead single “Thunder kiss ’65”. Their final studio album, Astro Creep: 2000, was released in 1995 and became their first top 10 album on the Billboard 200 featuring the single “More Human than Human”. Zombie has since established himself as a solo artist, film director, screenwriter, and producer. He has five solo studio albums under his belt. In 2016, he released a slasher film called 31 and his last studio album entitled The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser. I've seen Zombie many times over the years and he always puts on a kick ass show. I also got a chance to meet him once. See photo below.
