Greetings boys and GHOULs! The second season of AMC's 'The Walking Dead' premieres on Sunday evening , and before I get going with this new TV Lust blog, I wanted to share a few thoughts on the series and introduce myself. My story is fairly typical. I watched the George Romero 'Living Dead' series of films growing up, listened to White Zombie, and started dressing up like a zombie every Halloween. I'm no Tom Savini, so my 'zombie' get-up involves wearing some old torn up clothes, painting my face white with sunken black eyes, and then squirting liberal amounts of stage blood all over my head.

As Rob Zombie explains, White Zombie started out with fairly modest ambitions. "Our biggest expectations for this band was just playing a show at CBGBs," he says. "So everything -- touring the world, selling millions of records, playing big shows -- everything has been completely shocking."Not that he's complaining, mind you. White Zombie's new album, "Astro-Creep 2000: Songs of Love, Destruction and Other Synthetic Delusions of the Electric Head" was recently just certified platinum, just six weeks since its release.

Halloween Hootenanny When it comes to Halloween and rock and roll, two names come quickly to mind — and aren't we lucky they're playing together Sunday at Merriweather? Alice Cooper, of course, has been playing fright rock for years — with an album called "Welcome to My Nightmare," you know he'd be a welcome guest at any haunted house. And even though he's been concentrating on films more in recent years, Rob Zombie has been freaking out music fans since his days fronting White Zombie.

Donna LewisNow In a Minute (Atlantic 82762)What listeners look for in love songs isn't a reflection of their own romantic experience so much as a sense of what love should be like. Maybe that's why the Donna Lewis single "I Love You Always Forever" has struck such a chord with pop fans, because seldom has eternal devotion been made to seem so effortless and effervescent. Lewis can't take credit for the chorus' clever wordplay -- those specific lyrics come from the H.E. Bates novel "Love for Lydia" -- but she does deserve applause for the way she has set them to music, using the words' natural cadence to concoct the kind of catchy melody you hear once and hum all day. That's not the kind of magic songwriters conjure on a regular basis, so it's hardly surprising that the rest of Lewis' album, "Now In a Minute," doesn't quite live up to that standard.

JOHN MICHAEL MONTGOMERYJohn Michael Montgomery (Atlantic 82728)One of the advantages of working in a style as tradition-bound as country music is that lacking original ideas is never held against you. By the same token, the only thing capable of keeping those well-worn ideas from coming across as cliched is conviction. Trouble is, John Michael Montgomery comes up short on both counts. Not only are the songs on his new album, "John Michael Montgomery," about as inspired as its title, but he ends up treating the material as if he were selling it by the yard.

Rob ZombieHellbilly Deluxe (Geffen 25212)Having spent several years building an audience for White Zombie, why did frontman Rob Zombie decide to ditch his band and make a solo album? After listening to "Hellbilly Deluxe," the answer seems obvious: The devil made him do it.Don't get the wrong idea. It's not as if our Mr. Zombie has made a pact with Satan or is engaging in any anti-Christian skulduggery. "Hellbilly Deluxe" may be loud and obnoxious enough to tick parents off, but it's certainly not part of some dark plan to harvest souls for the Dark One.No, the only kind of deviltry Zombie cares about is of the Halloween and horror-movie variety.

Get a double dose of hard rock at the Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie concert on Saturday at the Verizon Center. Last year, Osbourne (above), a heavy-metal fixture whose career has spanned almost four decades, released his first album in six years with new studio material. Zombie, best known as the front man for the disbanded metal group White Zombie, has enjoyed a successful solo music and film career. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $39.75-$89.75. The center is at 601 F St. N.W., Washington.

If George Sherrill is going to be the Orioles' closer this season, as expected, he will need to do more than keep the bases clean in the ninth inning. He will also need a good entrance song. Closers are known almost as much for their choice of music as for their save totals. Chris Ray chose Marilyn Manson's "Sweet Dreams" at Camden Yards. In Seattle, J.J. Putz always wanted to hear AC/DC's "Thunderstruck." As a setup man with the Mariners, Sherrill didn't always get to play DJ. "I had a White Zombie song in Seattle, and sometimes they'd use it. And sometimes they'd just go with some fan-friendly song," he said.
