Zakk Wylde cover of Revolver, including Black Label Society Patch, Available now
Black Label Society frontman Zakk Wylde graces the newsstand cover of Revolver’s September/October 2010 issue, paying homage to recently deceased fantasy artist Frank Frazetta’s painting Death Dealer II. Included with every Zakk Wylde copy of the issue is an exclusive, limited-edition Black Label Society patch featuring the cover art of the metal band’s new album, Order of the Black (E1).
In the cover story, the always hilarious Wylde talks about why he got sober, all the travails he’s faced in the past couple of years—from getting dismissed from Ozzy’s band to almost dying from blood clots in his lungs—and what gives him the strength to persevere.
In celebration of the issue, Wylde is making some rare in-store appearances, signing copies of his Revolver and Guitar World covers. Upcoming appearances include New York and Seattle. Click here for more info.
An alternate cover of this issue of Revolver features hard rockers Stone Sour (scroll down to see it). In the mag, Corey Taylor and Jim Root, also of Slipknot, who are known for their angsty and aggressive songs, talk about what it’s like to record an album while happy. They tell the story of how they came to make their killer new album, Audio Secrecy (Roadrunner).
