Anthony Morgan of Metal Forces recently conducted an interview withBLACK LABEL SOCIETY frontman and ex-OZZY OSBOURNE guitaristZakk Wylde. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.
On the paperback release of his book, “Bringing Metal To The Children”:
Zakk: “The book all started from me and Eric [Hendrikx, co-author] just sitting around, talking, like any of the guys. It’d be like me and you sitting at the bar, talking about ‘You’re not gonna believe what happened the other day,’ and this and that. It’s the music business, where there are no rules [laughs]. There’s no qualifications; you don’t have to have a Master’s degree. You just show up and you’re there, but that’s where you get the cast of characters, and that’s where you get all of the comedy man. Like I always say, it’s unimportant people making important decisions. They have no business doing what they’re doing, but that’s how it gets run. Anywhere else, if you wanna apply for a job welding or being a brain surgeon or any of that, you have to have a degree and you have to have a license, and everything like that [laughs]. Not in the music business, though. But yeah, it just came out of funny stories and us just laughing our balls off, talking about how ridiculously goofy the music business is. That’s how the book came about, me saying ‘You’ve gotta write a book about all this crap someday.'”
