Spider One immediately became one of my favorites when he opened our interview by joining the Jay Leno Club! That's right...Spider One asked if anyone has mentioned that I resemble Leno...and it is right there on video.
From then on, it was all a blur. No seriously, it was a great time talking to him.
Spider One (born Michael David Cummings) is the lead singer (and only continual founding member) of Powerman 5000, a metal band based in Boston. He is also the brother of Rob Zombie.
I had a lot of fun talking to him. He mentioned being on the other end of interviews, as he conducted some for FEARnet at a comic con. It was interesting to see his take on it and who he wanted to meet.
Aside from his work with Powerman 5000, he created Death Valley, a mockumentary series on Mtv. I really enjoyed the shows and hope to see more of them. It's horror, comedy and all very entertaining.
Spider One was totally cool, making me feel at ease. He had a steady stream of fans at the convention and was a hit with the horror fans.
