Guitarist John 5 talks to us in the Rob Zombie dressing room backstage at Download
What goes on the Rob Zombie dressing room before a gig?
It’s usually just us getting ready, getting our make up on and stuff. I usually just listen to music and we talk about the show – it’s so big, so we go through everything – the pyro cues and all that stuff. (more…)

Linkin Park and Rob Zombie Confirmed For Download 2011
Grammy award winning musician and producer Rob Zombie returns to Donington Park for the first time in 16 years! Also joining the line-up is Californian rockers Linkin Park.
With the chat rooms buzzing with activity over this evening’s news that Linkin Park have been confirmed as the second headliner for Download 2011, organisers have just added one more artist to the bill that’s sent the hype machine in to overdrive!
Download organisers are thrilled to announce that Grammy award winning musician / producer and director Rob Zombie will perform at next year’s Download – an incredible 16 years since he last played the Donington Park site with his then band White Zombie.
Rob Zombie founded the metal band White Zombie and has since carved a successful career as a horror producer and director, notably for movies House Of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects.
He released his new album ‘Hellbilly Deluxe 2′ earlier this year to huge critical acclaim.
Fans have been begging Download Festival organisers for years to get Rob on the bill – and now they’re pleased to finally answer the call.
