Michael David Cummings was born on August 25, 1968 in Haverhill, Massachusetts, the second of two sons. His older brother, Robert Bartleh Cummings (born January 12, 1965), is better known as musician and film director Rob Zombie. Contrary to popular belief, Cummings stated that there has never been a sibling rivalry between him and his brother, neither personally nor musically. In 1991, Cummings dropped out of art school, bought a cheap 4-track home studio and drum machine and recorded Much Evil with producer Lamar Lowder. Building on local success, Spider One's band Powerman 5000 was born.
