Sure, Ozzy Osbourne once broke bread with the president, but it's likely no metal maven embodies the American Dream more than Rob Zombie. Not only can the shock rocker claim seven gold and platinum discs (the most ever by a Geffen artist), he's done pretty well with his movie and comic-book offerings too.

Yep, Zombie is a bona fide multimedia machine, but if you're expecting an answer other than hard work to explain his triumphs, don't stand too close. "My only advice," he says, "is if there's anything that will deter you, then quit now.

"Actually," Zombie offers upon reflection, "even asking for advice tells me that you'll quit. I never asked anyone for advice, because I knew I would never quit. Even when people were telling me to quit. They're going, 'This is never going to happen. Why do you waste your life?' And the only answer you can really have is 'Fuck you.'" God bless America.
