Rob Zombie (born Robert Bartleh Cummings; January 12, 1965) is an American musician, film director, screenwriter and film producer. Zombie rose to fame as a #founding #member of the #heavy #metal #band White Zombie, releasing four studio albums with the band.
Zombie’s first solo effort was a song titled „Hands of Death (Burn Baby Burn)” (1996) with Alice Cooper, which went on to receive a nomination for Best Metal Performance at the 39th Annual Grammy Awards. In 1997, he began working on his debut solo studio album, Hellbilly Deluxe, which was released in August 1998. A month later, Zombie officially disbanded White Zombie. His solo album went on to sell over three million copies worldwide, and spawned three singles. He released a remix album the following year that contained songs from Hellbilly Deluxe. Zombie directed the horror film House of 1000 Corpses in 2000, though the controversial project failed to see a release until 2003. His second studio album, The Sinister Urge (2001), became his second platinum album in the United States. In 2003, Zombie released the compilation album Past, Present, & Future.
