BLACK LABEL SOCIETY
With special guest
BLACK STONE CHERRY
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 8PM
ZAKK WYLDE may well be one of the hardest-working men in music right now. On top of helping Ozzy Osbourne write songs for his next record, he's just putting the finishing touches on Shot To Hell, his first BLACK LABEL SOCIETY album for Roadrunner Records. Produced by Zakk and Michael Beinhorn (Ozzy, Korn, Soundgarden), and recorded with longtime pals Craig Nunenmacher (drums) and John "J.D." DeServio (bass), Shot To Hell takes the ferocious hard rock of such BLS albums as 2003's Blessed Hellride and 2005's Mafia to a whole new level of “brewtality.” In the two decades since Ozzy plucked him from obscurity (at a gas station job in New Jersey) and hired him to be his new guitarist, Zakk has established himself as a guitar icon on the same level as Rhoads, Page and Eddie Van Halen, thanks to the impressive work he's done with Ozzy, as a solo artist, and as the leader of Pride & Glory and Black Label Society. He's won practically every guitar magazine award there is, and he's regularly cited as a major influence by the latest wave of metal guitarists. For Zakk, such recognition is humbling and gratifying, especially since he and his late pal Dimebag Darrell were about the only guitarists still flying the flag for seriously shredding solos during the nu-metal Nineties. Happily for fans of gut-busting, ear-blasting, engine-revving rock and roll, Zakk won't be retiring from performing or recording any time soon. If Shot To Hell is any indication, Black Label Society still has plenty of juice left in the bottle.
