Rob Zombie is not at all interested in returning to White Zombie, which simply means the price isn’t right yet.
You wait and see. Mike Patton had a change of heart about Faith No More’s reunion, and Rob will have a change of heart about White Zombie once Kevin Lyman throws enough money at him to headline Mayhem.
Until then, Rob will keep saying what he said to Sami Jarroush of the Rock It Out! Blog and Consequence Of Sound.
“No. We did it, and it’s done. And it wouldn’t be good,” says Zombie.
“That’s the thing. I mean, a lot of people forget, because they went to see White Zombie and they were 15-years-old and it was their first concert and everybody in White Zombie was, like, 23-years-old. They’re no longer 15 and they’re gonna come to the concert at 40 and look at White Zombie, who are all gonna be 50, and go, ‘This sucks now.’ I mean, they forget that time marched on and changed. So I don’t wanna come back and do it again just so that it can be inferior.”
Money changes everything.
“White Zombie stopped at the height of our career — we had a triple-platinum record and we just did our huge, sold-out arena tour everywhere and then we stopped, and that’s the best way to leave it.”
Rob also offered his opinion on the countless rock and metal acts who have gotten back together in recent years.
“Most of the time — I’m not gonna lie; I never like to lie about stuff — everybody does everything for money. You know, bands that can’t stand each other, hate each other’s guts, get back together ’cause they can make more money that way. And that’s not a good reason to do it. I mean, I like the band I have now; we’re all friends. To get back with a bunch of people that I literally haven’t even spoken to in 20 years to go do a run for a bunch of money, I just think that’s a big lie and I’m just not into it.”
