The next installment of Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp takes place Thursday through Monday, February 20, in Hollywood, California. There current batch of the camp's celeb guitarists reads like a very cool NAMM booth appearance roster.
For those of you who missed all the action from our first ever Rock and Roll Roast, featuring guest of honor Zakk Wylde, tonight's your chance to catch all the action. Sirius XM has just introduced a new station, Ozzy's Boneyard, which features Ozzy-centric hard rock and metal programming.
Here's the exclusive premiere of a new video by Toronto's My Darkest Days: the acoustic version of their new song, "Casual Sex," featuring only Matt Walst and Reid Henry in the studio. The song -- well, the electric version of it, at least -- is the first single from the band's new album, Sick and Twisted Affair, which is due for a spring release via Mercury Records. The single is available now on iTunes. The new album was produced by Joey Moi.
Earlier this month at the Guitar World Roast of Zakk Wylde, Revolver TV was on hand to talk to all the stars as they made their way down the Red Carpet. Check out the video below for exclusive interviews with Slayer's Kerry King, Anthrax's Scott Ian, Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor, Duff McKagan and more!
The Ultimate Warrior -- a force in the professional wrestling world for, well, the better part of my childhood -- was among the roasters at Guitar World's Roast of Zakk Wylde this past Thursday at the Grove in Anaheim, CA.
As many of you know, Zakk Wylde is the victim ... er, guest of honor at Guitar World's very first Rock and Roll Roast this Thursday night in Anaheim, California. Zakk will endure tongue-lashing from Ozzy Osbourne, Jim Florentine, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Brian Posehn, Corey Taylor, Chris Jericho, Jim Breuer and more, all at the hands of roastmaster Sharon Osbourne.
It's now a common piece of rock and roll lore than Zakk Wylde once auditioned to join Slash in Guns N' Roses during the mid '90s. While the band ultimately decided that a two lead-player approach wouldn't work, it's fun to think about what the band would have sounded like with those two sharing guitar duties -- and apparently Zakk agrees.
John "JD" DeServio has been involved off and on with Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society for several years. Their personal relationship goes back even further, to Wylde's pre-Ozzy Osbourne days. JD has made a career for himself -- as an extremely versatile musician and producer -- beginning with a solid musical education in high school, followed by intense study at Berklee College of Music in Boston.
