Overview

With Eric Hendrikx, foreword by Rob Zombie In this ultimate guide to Heavy Metal, Zakk Wylde, wild prankster and guitar god of Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society fame invites all who dare onto the tour bus for tales of glory, debauchery, and general mayhem. 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 in Bringing Metal to the Children. Wylde details his survival techniques for maintaining a berzerker's life on the road, managing a band of raging Vikings, and somehow making it on stage and blowing the crowd away night after night after 25 years in the biz. Wylde tells epic stories about life on the road and uses his Black Label Society coaching techniques to instruct the reader on proper touring hygiene, pre-concert preparations, and post-show etiquette. He tells of wild nights with many of heavy metal's ultimate gods including; Rob Zombie, Eddie Van Halen, Dimebag Darrell, Alice In Chain's Mike Inez, Skid Row's Snake Sabo, Metallica's Lars Ulrich, professional wrestlers Chris Jericho, Bubba Dudley and Stone Cold Steve Austin, UFC Former Light Heavyweight Champion Forrest Griffin and of course the Godfather of heavy metal, Ozzy Osbourne. 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 destroying a guitar on stage, and tongue-in-cheek plans for how to set up a shooting range on the tour bus. This is the ultimate guide to rock on the road. What you'll gain from this book: * Take the Berserker Challenge to see if you are a True Rocker * Find out how not to make it in the music business * Study Rules of the Road, like No Shitting on the Bus * Learn to explain crabs and other STDs to pharmacists in foreign countries * Brush up on your Moshpit Survival Techniques * How to avoid being ravaged by a giant horny moose

Reviews

/ Zakk Wylde. Great Player. Great Sound. Great Friend. EDWARD VAN HALEN / If Zakk Wylde did not exist we would have to build him like Frankenstein's monster. The hands of Randy Rhoads sewn onto the body of Conan the Barbarian implanted with the brain of Larry David. ROB ZOMBIE / Zakk Wylde possesses the strength Thor, heart of a lion, and endowment of a steed. When I wage war in Ragnarok, I shall order my Valkyries to bring this brave and noble Berzerker to fight along my side. ODIN, NORSE GOD AND RULER OF ASGARD / When Zakk plays it's like Guitarmageddon!! It's an audio assault coming from his fretboard and the true meaning of guitar hero. KERRY KING / I love and respect Zakk as if he were my son. Matter of fact, he says he is my son! He is the ultimate musician, great guitarist, and incredible on the piano. His guitar playing makes me grin ear to ear and that is a true gift. LESLIE WEST / Zakk is a man with a truly remarkable voice that stands alongside his crazyman guit-fiddle skills. He and Darrell were always blowin' shit up, but the way I look at it, you can always fix stuff, but you can never replace the memories. RITA HANEY, DIMEBAG'S HAG / Whenever I'm stuck on a scene, I find myself thinking, 'What would Zakk do?' Invariably, I think back to the first time I met the guy. He pulled me into a thunderous man-hug, shoved a cold Stella in my hands, whipped out his rather prodigious member, stretched it around his wrist like a fleshy Timex and asked me what time it was. Then he urinated in a trash can for about five minutes. It was, in a word, awesome. Much has been said about Zakk's status as the world's last real guitar hero. Not enough has been said about his abilities as a comic actor. If the fucker would just stop working out and let himself go already, he could be the next Belushi. TOM KAPINOS, CREATOR/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER, CALIFORNICATION / There ain't a fake bone in his body. STEVE AUSTIN
