Sixty-two minutes for $35? What a bargain... err, not.
That Rob Zombie is a busy guy. Maybe too busy. He's directed two major motion pictures in the past five years (House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects) and is in the midst of making another. He just released a new album (Educating Horses) and on the very same day kicked off a sold-out, two-night stand at New York City's Nokia Theatre. And he's hardly leaning on old hands: he replaced over 67% of the musicians on his new album/touring band. He's also developed animation sequences for his new concert tour and the new movie, The Haunted Legend of El Superbeasto. (Lest you think I'm an actual scoop reporter, I found this out when a card dropped out of the new CD and into my lap when I opened the sucker.) He's even found time to be a husband -- Zombie and Sheri Moon, the evil sexpot from his two movies, were married on Halloween 2002. It was nice, then, that Zombie managed to find time in his busy schedule to embark upon a tour to promote the new CD. Zombie, a master of smoke and mirrors, figured that by putting three bands on the bill, he'd satisfy the concert appetites of those in the audience. But this old and wizened reviewer saw through all the smoke and mirrors. He must have had a casting call to run off to, because Zombie's band played a mere dozen songs in a neat, tidy, rip-offian (new word) 62 minutes! Now that's what I call efficiency.
