Rob Zombie Slams Today's Pathetic Pop Singers

(Classic Rock) Rob Zombie believes rock music has been out of fashion in recent years because the industry prefers pop artists who are prepared to mime on stage.

He says: "Rock bands can deliver it live, whereas a lot of pop acts you watch the Grammys and it's pathetic sometimes. 60-year-old Bruce Springsteen comes out and he rocks. Whatever pop star of the moment comes out and lip-synchs through some pathetic performance, and you're like, 'Really? Is this what it's come down to?'

"I feel like hard rock and heavy metal has been pushed back underground for the last couple of years. But it doesn't seem like that anymore. So that's why I'm kind of excited to make a record again."
