The home belonging to longtime Rob Zombie producer Scott Humphrey has come on the market at $2,695,000. Without question, one could easily go to the grave without crossing paths with Zombie, so readers might want to envision a heavy metal musician with a horror-slasher film twist and a slice of the demonic -- and that's just his tattoos.


Humphrey, who clearly must like to live at the office, is selling a gated compound in the Hollywood Hills that includes the famous Chop Shop recording studio, which has been graced by the presence of Zombie, Tommy Lee, Ozzy Osbourne and pretty much every other heavy metalist worth his smashed guitar. There's a screening room, four bedrooms, six bathrooms and a Zen garden and waterfall for those mellower moments. The 4,997-square-foot house has an "overflowing vessel tub" in the master bedroom suite, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

Record producer-mix engineer Humphrey also has worked with Dwight Yoakam, Nine Inch Nails, 'N Sync and the Cult. He was Zombie's co-composer for the score of the Zombie film "House of 1000 Corpses."

Mercedeh Javid of 360 Realty has the listing, according to the MLS.
