If you are fan of the guitar this man needs no introduction, his work as a solo artist is second to none. Most recently his work as the guitarist of the supergroup Chickenfoot has proved that he can do it in a band situation as well. Over the last two years Joe has worked with author Jake Brown to put together an autobiography of his music. The book called Strange Beautiful Music will be out in May. During that time he remastered every thing he ever recorded and the box-set The Complete Studio Recordings just hit stores. The replica head you can order right here with the high res files of the music is worth it for any collector. Joe goes into great detail about his book, his music and much more on the latest Hangar 19 Podcast edition.

Zakk Wylde and I get to talk on average once a year. He is one of my favorite people in heavy metal and hard rock which is amazing because he is also one of the most influential guitar players that exist. After spending almost 20 years playing guitar for Ozzy and then putting together the band Black Label Society in the late 90′s he never stops. BLS’s new album Catacombs of the Black Vatican comes out April 8th and it’s exactly what you would expect, killer riffs and amazing guitar solos, but the songwriting has seemingly been picked up a notch and Zakk’s vocals have never sounded better. It’s another conversation with Zakk Wylde on the Hangar 19 Podcast.
