Guitar great Zakk Wylde is missing one of the tools of his trade, and it's a special one at that. The Black Label Society leader's prized Pelham Blue Bullseye Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar was stolen during a tour stop in Chicago, and a police investigation into the theft is now under way.
When it comes to interviews, Zakk Wylde is all business. We invited the Black Label Society frontman to our studio to learn about the band's ninth studio album, 'Catacombs of the Black Vatican,' along with everything Zakk Wylde. It didn't take long for Wylde to open up, enlightening us about the courage it takes to get in bed with a woman, the pain of masturbatory accidents + much more.
Some may go into the Apple Store to check out the latest iPad or iPhone, but Friday night (Jan. 17) metalheads gathered at the Apple Store in New York's SoHo neighborhood for an intimate question and answer session along with an acoustic performance featuring the one and only Zakk Wylde.
Zakk Wylde's name has come up more than a few times this year as a fill-in for a potential Pantera reunion, but before that could ever happen, the remaining members would have to determine if a reunion without the full original lineup is in their best interest. Wylde tells Brave Words that Pantera getting back together after the death of Dimebag Darrell is similar to what Led Zeppelin had to consider when offers continued to flood in after the loss of John Bonham.
Throughout the past year, the surviving members of Pantera have commented on the possibility of Zakk Wylde filling in for the late Dimebag Darrell if the band were ever to reunite. While it's all been speculation thus far, singer Phil Anselmo now reveals that he recently discussed the topic with Wylde himself.
IT'S A ROAST OF EPIC METAL-NESS! In the first ever 'Rock-N-Roll Roast' presented by Guitar World! Turns out Black Label Society Frontman Zakk Wylde is gonna get a comedy beating from Ozzy, Scott Ian of Anthrax, and even Corey Taylor of Slipknot/Stone Sour.
Zakk Wylde: The Guitar God has always been known as one of the greatest guitarist of all time. When I met him, we talked about B-Movies such as 'Jaws: The Revenge,' 'Evil Dead,' and 'The Toxic Avenger.' This of course brought up the question, "What does Zakk Wylde do in his spare time anyway?"
When it comes to rock, it means long hair...well it used to at least. But two Metal Gods are bringing back what makes metal look damn good, BEARDS! But who has the best one? Thrash Metal guitarist Scott Ian of Anthrax? Or Guitar God Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society?
