ROB ZOMBIE Doesn't Hate Skaters And Kids

August 7, 2013

Rob Zombie has commented on the report that his wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, has asked the town of Woodbury, Connecticut, where she and her husband live, to move a skateboard park that is adjacent to their property due to the noise coming from the facility.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Sheri spoke up at the annual town budget meeting, saying, "I was wondering if we could designate some of the reserve to move the skateboard park that was put adjacent to my property which is proved to be a significant noise pollutant and has reduced the quality of life for me and my two other neighbors that it affects."

Town selectman Gerald Stomski said that the town has taken steps to muffle the noise, including enclosing the undersides of the skate ramps and cutting back on the park's hours of operation.

But Sheri insisted that the town hasn't gone far enough, saying, "I know they're trying to improve the obnoxious noise with the wood on the side of the ramps, and that did nothing. I know they have ordered sound fabric. I think this is just a Band-Aid. The skateboard park should not have been put there."

In a posting on his Facebook page, Rob wrote: "It seems nuts to even have to address this, but I guess I will. Some really crazy articles have popped up making claims about 'hating skaters' and 'hating children.' None of this is true and it makes me sick that someone would print such lies.

"There is a simple matter going on in which we are trying to find a solution that will make EVERYBODY happy. Unfortunately, someone decided to turn it into a whole ugly event. What a bummer."

Now that the park is closing earlier every day and is completely closed on Sundays, parents of local kids are getting into the act as well, wanting to know why their children can't get into the park as often as they used to.

The Zombies have lived at their Sycamore Avenue home since 2009, four years prior to the opening of the skate park at Hollow Park in March of 2013. The main park itself has been there for decades.

Stomski said the town is "trying to take whatever steps we can. We're trying to be good neighbors," adding, "You need to understand that it is a park with multiple types of recreation."

Sheri's husband has just finished a co-headlining run on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival tour.
