American metal singer Rob Zombie has announced the return of his original bassist, Rob “Blasko” Nicholson, following the departure of Piggy D, who leaves the outfit after 18 years,

After 18 years I am thrilled to announce that Blasko has returned,” Zombie wrote on Instagram. “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“.

This is the second major change in the Rob Zombie line-up in recent years. Back in 2022, longtime guitarist John 5 left to join Mötley Crüe, and Zombie filled his position with OG guitarist Mike Riggs.

Rob Zombie‘s current band consists of Zombie, Riggs, Blasko and drummer Ginger Fish, who has played with Rob since 2011.
