Rob Zombie Pays Tribute To Late “House Of 1000 Corpses” Actor Michael J. Pollard

Michael J. Pollard, aka Stucky from Rob Zombie’s “House Of 1000 Corpses,” has sadly passed away at the age of 80. Zombie took to Instagram to pay tribute to the late actor:

“Another member of our House of 1000 Corpses family has left us. The great Michael J Pollard has died. I have been a huge fan of Micheal since I first saw him on the Star Trek “Miri”. He was amazing in everything from Bonnie and Clyde to Little Fauss and Big Halsy from Dirty Little Billy to The Four of the Apocalypse. 20 years ago he was one of the first actors I casted in 1000 Corpses. He was a hoot and will be missed.”

Rob Zombie Pays Tribute To Late Actor Sid Haig (“House Of 1000 Corpses”, Etc.)

Actor Sid Haig, who portrayed Captain Spaulding in Rob Zombie’s “House Of 1000 Corpses” and “The Devil’s Rejects”, has passed away at the age of 80. His wife confirmed the sad news via Instagram, saying he died on Saturday (September 21).

Zombie paid tribute to Haig on Facebook:

“Last night I received a phone call I was dreading from Bill Moseley. He told me that our friend Sid Haig had died. It was shocking but unfortunately not unexpected. I’ve known for a long time how sick Sid was and what he was battling. Over the past year as I saw pictures of him still attending conventions I thought perhaps he had beat it, but last week when he returned to the hospital I feared the worst.

Sid and I had a long talk on the day that he told me of his condition and he knew 3 From Hell would most likely be his last appearance on screen. Sadly it was. I knew it was very important to Sid that Captain Spaulding make one more round and he did. Sid’s time the film is brief. He was in rough shape that day, but he gave it his all and made his scene very memorable.

I was fan of his as a kid watching Jason of Star Command all the way through our twenty years of working together. I can still clearly remember the first time we met. It was at the Edith Head Costume building at Universal. Sid came out of the dressing room wearing a clown suit which was a few sizes too small. We said hello then we both started laughing at how ridiculous he looked in his ill-fitting suit. We would find him a much better suit.

As we were making House Of 1000 Corpses neither of us knew he was creating a character that would live on and grow in popularity every year. Sid told me many times how thankful he was for the Captain and how that character changed his life. He had completely given up on acting and now suddenly had found a whole new audience at the age of 60. I know he was thrilled and blown away by that fact.

The Captain is gone… but he will never be forgotten.

Rest in Peace Sid

Rob Zombie Hoping To Release New Album In February

During a recent interview with NME, Rob Zombie offered an update on the release plans for his new album. The frontman said he is hoping to release the effort in February.

Zombie said the following:

“The record’s definitely finished and, like John [5, guitarist] says, I think it’s the best record we’ve ever made. It’s a very big, crazy and complex record that I’m really excited to finally be able to release. I just had to get everything with ‘3 From Hell‘ completely finished before we got into that, but my plan now is to start shooting some big videos for the album around January so that we can release it early next year. I’m hoping for a February 2020 release…”

This news comes after John 5 recently described the album as “very heavy” and “hooky.”

John 5 Says Rob Zombie’s New Album Is “Very Heavy” & “Hooky”

During a recent interview with Revolver, John 5 talked a bit about Rob Zombie’s upcoming album. According to the guitarist, the effort is “a heavy Zombie record with great hooks.”

John 5 said the following

“[It’s] heavy, very heavy. It’s just a heavy Zombie record with great hooks. It’s very, very musical, and a hard-hitting Zombie record. I think people are really gonna dig it. I’m a Zombie fan, and if I heard it, I’d be like, ‘Oh my God, this is brutal.’ I’m really excited about it.”

He also added the following when asked if it was his favorite Zombie album that he’s played on:

“Well, this is definitely the most musical, meaning there are a lot of different changes, and it’s very unorthodox how the structure is, you know? I have to be careful because I know people will take a little snippet of what I’m saying, so we’ll go with a very heavy, hooky Rob Zombie record.”
