Next month, Black Label Society founder Zakk Wylde will add radio host to his resume. 'Wylde on Sports' begins Sept. 4 on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio, channel 87 on XM and channel 210 on Sirius Premiere. The weekly talk show will find the longtime Ozzy Osbourne guitarist answering phone calls from fantasy football players nationwide.
Former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde is willing to replace Dimebag Darrell should Pantera reform. In an interview promoting his book, 'Bringing Metal to the Children: The Complete Berzerker's Guide to World Tour Domination,' Wylde was asked the question that has been floating around the metal world for the past few months.
For 50 years many of the world's best rock guitarists have chosen to use Marshall amplifiers, and on Sept. 22 they'll celebrate their love for this equipment. Joe Satriani, Zakk Wylde and members of Iron Maiden and Whitesnake are on the bill for the 50 Years of Loud concert at London's Wembley Arena.
One thing that guitarist Zakk Wylde is not is sedentary. After a year full of non-stop rock that included a Black Label Society tour with Judas Priest, some shows with Guns N' Roses and a Christmas album and collaborating the the one and only William Shatner, (or as he calls him, 'Father Shatner'), Zakk is already getting into gear for 2012.
As Capt. James T. Kirk on TV's 'Star Trek,' William Shatner was accustomed to exploring strange new worlds. And as an occasional recording artist, the veteran actor likes to do the same. But even by Shatner's unique standards, he really outdoes himself on his new, guest-filled double album 'Seeking Major Tom,' which includes hard-hitting material originally done by Black Sabbath and Deep Purple.
