With the news of sudden departure of long-time bassist, Piggy, Rob Zombie didn’t waste any time in filling the slot, and has re-united with Rob ‘Blasko’ Nicholson. Find out more below…

Rob Zombie has been rejoined by bassist Rob “Blasko” Nicholson.

The news comes just hours after the shock rocker’s longtime bassist Matt “Piggy D.” Montgomery announced that he was exiting the band after 18 years.

After 18 years I am thrilled to announce that Blasko has returned,” Zombie wrote on Instagram yesterday (Tuesday, January 30). “The original four-string Zombie monster is back. Get ready for a crazy summer of mayhem.”

Blasko was a member of Rob Zombie’s band from 1997 through 2006, playing bass on the first three Zombie albums: “Hellbilly Deluxe“, “The Sinister Urge” and “Educated Horses“.

Nicholson left Zombie in May 2006 in order to join Ozzy Osbourne’s recording/touring band. Rob Zombie’s current band consists of ZombieRiggsBlasko and drummer Ginger Fish, who has played with Rob since 2011.

Earlier this week, Zombie announced his 2024 “Freaks On Parade” co-headlining tour with Alice Cooper, featuring support from MINISTRY and FILTER. The trek is scheduled to kick off in August.
