INTERVIEW: ZAKK WYLDE OF BLACK LABEL SOCIETY

ZakkWyldeZakk 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.
