Elton John and Queen are big hits with Rob Zombie, according to a recent interview the rocker gave with Spinner.com. In the sit-down, the White Zombie frontman said he loves many of the popular acts from the 1970s.

"It was the whole scene of the music when I was coming up [that influenced me]," Zombie said. "What formed my opinion when I was a kid was KISS, Alice Cooper, Elton John, Queen . . . everything was larger than life and everything was a show - and that never left me. That may have left the world, somewhat, but that never left me."

The rock singer that has also directed movies, including The Devil's Rejects and House of 1000 Corpses, believes that rock n' roll has been missing theatricality and he wishes someone would bring it back.

Zombie and Cooper have just announced their Halloween tour that they will be heading out on together in the fall.
