The Melvins' Buzz Osborne Says Rob Zombie Is a "Lower-Level Fuckhead"

This has got to be one of the hairiest music beefs of all time — the Melvins' frontman Buzz Osborne has put Rob Zombie on blast. 

Speaking with Rolling Stone, Osborne recalled the time the Melvins toured with Babes in Toyland and White Zombie. To put it politely, he did not have the fondest memories of Mr. Zombie.

"We played a lot of shows with [Babes in Toyland] back then, and they were always fun," Osborne recalled. "We did a tour with them and White Zombie, and we both got treated like fucking dogshit on that tour by the powers that be. It was a massively unnecessary situation of pointless rock-star behavior. I don't know what was going through [Rob Zombie's] head, but if making enemies is what you set out to do, well, mission accomplished."

He added, "I've been around people you would consider a rock star, like the guys in KISS, and they never behaved like that. It just makes you hate lower-level fuckheads like Rob Zombie even more. If I got treated like that by the fucking mailman, I'd hate his guts. So it was fun to have Babes in Toyland along."

So far, Rob Zombie has not yet responded to the comments.
