Best Of BLS - Skullage

Black Label Society Best Of CD!

Due out April 21, 2009 will be a CD/DVD deluxe package of Black Label Society's greatest hits titled Skullage. You may have heard smatterings about the band, but anyone who knows rock and metal knows Zakk Wylde.

Zakk Wylde for the last twenty years made his claim to fame as guitarist for a little icon known as Ozzy Osbourne. In 1987, Osbourne picked the New Jersey guitarist to replace Randy Rhoads. Since teaming up with Ozzy, Wylde formed Black Label Society and is widely considered one of the best guitarists of this generation. But when you worship the likes of Hendrix and Jimmy Page like Wylde does, you have to strive for their level of greatness.

Wylde has become not just the figurehead for his band, but seemingly for the entire modern metal genre these days. From making appearances on Guitar Hero, to Wrestling Society X, and even Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Wylde is a consistently busy family man with a penchant for the f-bomb in casual talk. A humorous example of this is from an interview he did for Live-Metal.net about doing the motion animation for Guitar Hero:

"Oh, it was f**kin’ hysterical, dude. Gay. You had to put the f**kin’ suit on with the f**kin’ LEDs on it. It’s like a black jumpsuit with all these f**kin’ things on it. Dude, it was f**kin’ hysterical. We were all f**kin’ crying laughing when I was doing it. You’re up on the screen, you can see yourself. We were just doing the gayest s**t, too. I was like f**kin’ humping the guitar, f**kin’ having sex with myself, f**kin’ ramming shit up my ass. [laughs] We were f**kin’ all on the ground, f**kin’ crying. We were just drinking beers, doing the whole f**kin’ thing. We had a blast when we did it."
