Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE) was recently interviewed on “The Zloz Hour”, the new video series hosted by legendary rock photographer Neil “Zloz” Zlozower. You can now watch the nearly-one-hour-long chat below.
Future interview guests on “The Zloz Hour” include Michael Anthony (VAN HALEN, CHICKENFOOT); Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, CHICKENFOOT); Joey Jordison (SLIPKNOT, ROB ZOMBIE, MURDERDOLLS), Dave Navarro (JANE’S ADDICTION, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS); Gilby Clarke (GUNS N’ ROSES); and Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N’ ROSES).
With a forty-year career as a top rock and roll photographer, Zlozower has seen and done it all, and then some. Simply stated, if you know anything about music, then you have most certainly heard of “Zloz.” Known around the world for hundreds of magazine and album covers, his images have often solidified the iconic visual images of many music idols and lent the man himself to reach his own legendary rock and roll status.
The most recognized rock photographer from the ’70s and ’80s, Zlozower toured extensively with VAN HALEN and MÖTLEY CRÜE and in their heyday. These raucous experiences lent to Zlozower‘s two previously released books, both aptly titled “A Visual History”, and published by Chronicle Books in 2008 and 2009 respectively. Zlozower‘s “Fuck You: Rock and Roll Portraits” was also released by Chronicle Books in 2008 and features a veritable rock and roll hall of fame of musicians such as GUNS N’ ROSES, BON JOVI, AEROSMITH, POISON, and Zakk Wylde flipping Zlozower the bird as a playful celebration of rock and roll attitude. With a studio located in the heart of Hollywood since the ’70s, Zloz is a guy that remains true to his L.A. roots.
