Zakk Wylde and Ozzy Osbourne Open Up in 1990 Guitar World Interview

Ozzy Osbourne, clad in a screaming yellow suit and black crucifix, and Zakk Wylde, attired in custom-made flared jeans, sit side-by-side on a couch. They rise as one at my appearance, their solemn, polite handshakes suggesting men of infinite wealth, taste and breeding.

Paul Rodgers: The Iconic Voice of Bad Company, Free and The Firm Is Still a Marvel

Singers have it rough. Because their bodies are their instruments, they always have to take care of themselves. If a guitarist parties too hard and gets a cold or a hangover, it’s no problem because their Les Paul and Marshall stack will always sound fine. If the same thing happens to a vocalist, it can result in the cancelled show.

The Yardbirds: One of the Best Gigs I've Seen This Year

I bet you didn’t know The Yardbirds were still around. Up until a month or two ago, I didn’t know either. Well, they are, and they’re fantastic.

Chelsea Grin and Of Mice & Men: Two Great New Metal Albums for Two Different Reasons

Since we are one of the few national magazines that regularly covers heavy metal, I get a shit-ton of it. Most of it, quite frankly, is frustratingly mediocre — and mediocre is my least favorite music. I actually enjoy hating something better than being bored by it.

The Jimmy Page Website Mystery

About a week ago, a Facebook friend and fellow Zep fan, Bill McCue, told me to type in In seconds, up popped a pouring hourglass positioned next to an ominous Roman numeral.

Sneak Preview: Zakk Wylde Writes a Book, and It’s Pretty F**k'n Funny!

When I got home last Friday night, I informed my 16-year-old son, Kane, that our favorite viking-sized guitar hero, Zakk Wylde, was putting out a book in September. While I can’t say for certain that Zakk has ever actually put pen to paper, there is no doubt that the contents are 100 percent Wylde.

Shock Rock! The Attack of Alice Cooper, Kiss, Slipknot and the 10,000-Foot Radioactive Teenager

In the early '70s, performers like the Alice Cooper Band, Kiss and Lou Reed posed the musical question: “Is there really anything more grotesque, outrageous and demented than being a teenager?” With that simple query — and a whole lotta makeup — the surprisingly durable genre of Shock Rock was born.

The Original Alice Cooper Band: Classic Rock’s Most Underrated Group

For years I’ve maintained that the original Alice Cooper band was one of the finest and most underrated bands in rock history.
