Rob Zombie has finished the final mixes for his next studio album and says it's his best yet. But before we hear that, fans will get a live disc that titled ‘Spookshow International Live’ that will be released later this year via T-Boy Records.
Zombie recently said on his facebook page:
“It’s been eight years since our last live album, so we figured it was time for another. Actually, we weren’t planning on it, but we recorded a few shows and they sounded really great,’ so we thought, ‘F— it! Let’s get it out there,” said Zombie of the effort. For the record, no overdubs, no fixes, no fake crowd, no nothing. 100% absolutely live. No joke.”
The set will include many of the songs Zombie was playing while supporting his ‘Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor’ tour, with songs like ‘Teenage Nosferatus Pussy,’ ‘Dead City Radio,’ ‘We’re an American Band’ and the show closing ‘Gong Gang Gong De Do Gong De Laga Raga’ turning up.
Other tracks on the album include ‘Living Dead Girl,’ ‘More Human Than Human,’ ‘Thunderkiss ’65,' ‘Dragula’ and the Ramones cover of ‘Blitzkrieg Bop.'.

Video surfaces from 2001 of Pantera’s Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul, and Rex Brown performing together for last time
Footage of Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul, and Rex Brown of Pantera performing on New Year's Eve 2001 has been unveiled for the first time. This clip of the three using the name "Gasoline" is reportedly the last time all three performed together live. Another singer is with the three in the clip, as Phil Anselmo was not with the group due to conflicts.
Chris Stiles, who posted the video said:
“This is my PERSONAL UNSEEN RARE FOOTAGE of Dimebag's RARE AND UNRELEASED BAND GASOLINE. This was a party band for fun only. These were just jack around tunes made to be funny and have a good time. These weren't meant to be serious by any means. The NEW AND UNRELEASED ANYWHERE ELSE songs...’GASOLINE’ and ‘GOING WITH THE GUT’. This is the LAST TIME REX, VINNIE, AND DIME played live together. The last song they got up and jammed Led Zeppelin's ‘Moby Dick’.
I hated sitting on this for so long but it's time the world gets to see it and enjoy it like I do. I've been lucky enough to have this since 2001 and I've never given a copy away and never let it out. Please respect that it's mine and I will not tolerate anyone stealing it. This is OWNED BY ME. If the family wanted it...that's another story. This show was a very special night...New Year’s was always a big deal for the brothers and usually they did a New Year’s gig for fun with pantera but after phil became harder to deal with they had to do their own thing on New Year’s. Pantera never played again and I'm thankful I saw the last moments these three stepped on stage together. This show was Union Underground opening, then Gasoline, Sevendust, Then Drowning Pool with Dave Williams.”
The bass player is a guy named shawn or "ST" as they called him for some reason. He was supposed to be the bass player in DAMAGEPLAN originally but did something to get booted out and was never seen around again from what I recall. New Found Power was that bands name then they changed it to Damageplan and got Bobzilla..but the cd was done by then and Dime did all the bass and guitar tracks. I even have a promo pic of them with shawn and NFP as their name..pretty cool. The Singer in this band Gasoline is the singer for PUMPJACK Thurber T. Mingus....they were a killer TEXAS band that DIME really loved. Very Texas metal/rock southern style....really great band that should have gone further. You can see their sticker on Dime's rebel flag guitar on many pictures including the one of him on the best of cd released a few years back. Grady Dime's tech owns that guitar now...rightfully so. Grady was the secret weapon for DIME..you can always catch him in the back working knobs helping dime...sound like dime. Dime was gonna blow you away either way..but those little things...that was Grady. At the end of the show JERRY CANTRELL rolls out and jams with the guys from DROWNING POOL. I actually have footage briefly...of the limo rolling up and the guys getting out with jerry and I had to stop it so I could get the guys to sign stuff. I recall jerry asking me.."how the hell did you know I would be here?" Well dime told me a few days before to expect it...so I was ready with AIC stuff to sign. Great guy...always friendly...they all were.
Some of the most funny things are in the Going with the Gut song... " I see an ad for a soloflex...and I know it's just not for me." "you know need a shed....when you got a tool like mine" lol No one did it like dime...no one. He was a one man party.
There used to be a lot of talk about since Pantera is done...why doesn't Dave sing for the brothers...well this as far as I know is the ONLY time the full band played PANTERA with Dave. He came up and played dif songs but NEVER with the full Pantera crew. As you can tell HE WOULD HAVE NAILED Pantera songs...and to be honest I'm certain he would have done the DAMAGEPLAN thing if it wasn't for what happened to him.. R.I.P. on a side note Dave was a hell of a guy.
As always Dimebag was very cool to hang with and loved having fun with his friends and fans. I was a young 18 year old that was just happy to be accepted around him. He allowed me to hang around him a lot so I'll be uploading more video of me with him and times I managed to film. I messaged the family many times about having this included in anything they officially released and never got any emails back so I'll go ahead and post it here for everyone to see. I don't think it's right to just hold on to it without letting others see what it's like to be around him. RIP dime... you made a huge impression on my young life and I'll never forget it.
This is my footage and belongs to ME. I will report anyone stealing it. Please enjoy it here and respect that I posted it for nothing so you guys could enjoy what I got to enjoy while he was here."
The Black Crowes formed in 1989 in Marietta, Georgia and this year marks the 25th anniversary of the release of the band's debut album 'Shake Your Money Maker,' but we won't be seeing the boys performing anything from it anytime soon, if ever. Guitarist Rich Robinson announced Thursday (Jan. 15) that, after 24 years, the Black Crowes have broken up. Apparently Rich's brother Chris Robinson was looking to change the inner structure of the business behind the band.
"It is with great disappointment and regret that after having the privilege of writing and performing the music of The Black Crowes over the last 24 years, I find myself in the position of saying that the band has broken up," Rich Robinsion said in a statement. "I hold my time with the Black Crowes with the utmost respect and sincerest appreciation. It is a huge swath of my life's body of work. I couldn't be more proud of what we accomplished and deeply moved by the relationships people created and maintained with my music. That alone is the greatest honor of being a musician.
"I love my brother and respect his talent but his present demand that I must give up my equal share of the band and that our drummer for 28 years and original partner, Steve Gorman, relinquish 100% of his share, reducing him to a salaried employee, is not something I could agree to. There are so many people who have helped and supported us along the way. I want to give a heartfelt thank you to all of our fans, our friends behind the scenes, and to everyone who was a part of The Black Crowes."
The Black Crowes previously split up in 2002 and went on hiatus in 2010, ultimately returning both times. Rich Robinson will continue on with his solo career, as Chris Robinson ventures forward with his Chris Robinson Brotherhood.
