Rob Zombie Reunites With Bassist Rob “Blasko” Nicholson


With Piggy D officially out, Rob Zombie has welcomed his former bassist Rob “Blasko” Nicholson (Zakk Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne) back into his band. Piggy D (aka Matt Montgomery) announced this week that his time with Zombie had come to an end, ending his near twenty-year run in the group.

Now Zombie has followed up, revealing that Piggy‘s predecessor, Blasko, is once again holding down the low-end duties. Following the 2022 departure of guitarist John 5, and the subsequent reinstatement of Mike Riggs in his place, this puts the roster for Zombie‘s backing band at 3/4th of its original 1997 era. Only drummer John Tempesta remains out of the lineup, with Ginger Fish staying put behind the drum kit.

Zombie briefly commented on the matter via social media earlier today, January 30th. His post can be seen below. This incarnation of the band’s lineup will be backing Zombie onstage amid this year’s ‘Freaks On Parade Tour‘, which will once again find Zombie sharing stages with Alice Cooper, Ministry and Filter.
