Download Radio 87.7 FM conducted an interview with Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE) at this year’s edition of the Download festival, which was held June 8-10 at Donington Park in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.
Wylde‘s handbook to all things heavy metal — “Bringing Metal To The Children” — was released on April 10 via William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.
In “Bringing Metal To The Children”, Zakk Wylde, the man who turned heavy metal touring into a journey of fantastical excess, shares what really goes on behind tour bus windows and backstage doors. The twenty-five year music veteran of the OZZY OSBOURNE band and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY details his survival techniques for maintaining a life on the road, managing a band of raging vikings, and somehow making it on stage and blowing the crowd away night after night. “Bringing Metal To The Children” also features Wylde‘s roadmap for success in the music business, tour planning and exclusive tips for the aspiring “metal musician,” as well as the best methods for surviving a mosh pit and plans for how to set up a shooting range on the tour bus.
