About Zakk Wylde

See more books from this Author
In the two decades since Ozzy Osbourne hired him away from his job at a New Jersey gas station to become his new guitarist, Zakk Wylde has established himself as a guitar icon known and revered the world over. Writing and recording with Osbourne led to multi-platinum success, inspiring him to create the now legendary Black Label Society in 1998. In the decade since, BLS has turned the notion of what a rock band should be upside down, inspiring legions of fans (known as Berzerkers) all over the world to follow the mantra: Strength, Determination, Merciless, Forever-SDMF for short. The Berzerkers, with Wylde as their leader, have created a heavy metal institution true to his vision of uncompromising, unfiltered, and unrestrained rock and roll. Wylde has won nearly every guitar award imaginable, and is a major influence on a new battalion of rock guitarists currently popular today. One thing is for certain: wherever Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society travels, brutality is sure to follow.

There are a few fleeting mentions to his teenage years and how he got started in the industry and everything since, but most of the pages of this tome describe his (and by extension his band's) life philosophy, as well as advice for anyone who wants to make a living playing in a band.

Let me make it clear that this book, co-written with Eric Hendrikx, doesn’t just immerse you the reader in the crazy antics and heavy metal life of Wylde… it drowns you in it. I really enjoyed getting this kind of ‘perspective’ of one of my favorite guitar players.

While Ozzy fans and BLS fans should have a particular interest in this book, I also recommend it to metal fans in general if you’re looking for a good laugh and some fun/gross stories about playing in a rock ‘n’ roll band.
