On Thursday, Zombie posted a photo on Instagram of himself with another person. The pic's caption? “Backstage in Argentina with Tobias from [Ghost].”

Ghost's frontman has long been rumored to be Swedish singer and guitarist Tobias Forge, a theory which was seemingly confirmed in a lawsuit against the musician by the band's former “Nameless Ghoul” instrumentalists.

Regardless, Emeritus/Forge is rarely seen without his signature corpse paint and costume. Here, Rob Zombie has apparently revealed one of the few public photos of the man, sans makeup, since he started Ghost circa 2008.
