Profile Bio Text
Robert Bartleh Cummings (born January 12, 1965), better known by his stage name, Rob Zombie, is an American musician, film director, screenwriter and film producer.
He founded the heavy metal band White Zombie, and as a solo musician sold a further 15 million albums. Five of his albums have been certified platinum and another two have been certified gold, making him the artist with the most gold and platinum discs on the Geffen Records label.
Zombie has also established a successful career as a film director, creating the movies House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil`s Rejects, the 2007 remake of Halloween, and the upcoming Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Zombie was born Robert Cummings Jr. to a saleswoman mother and a furniture-crafter father. He has a younger brother, Michael, who is now known as Spider One of the alternative-metal band Powerman 5000. After years working in carnivals, his parents settled down to raise their sons in Haverhill, Massachusetts, a suburban town Zombie considered sinister yet lacking in excitement. He was driven by boredom to watch more than eight hours a day of television and was soon fascinated by horror movies.
On October 31, 2002 he married long-time girlfriend Sheri Moon after almost 13 years of dating. The two had met at Toad`s Place, a concert venue, in New Haven, Connecticut through mutual friends. Ten days before their planned wedding date, the couple eloped on Halloween. She has appeared, usually as the lead actress, in all of his films, and is also featured in his live rock shows.
