Zakk announcement post

Zakk Wylde will be joining Axes & Anchors 2016 cruise with 2 rocking performances and a FREE guitar clinic.
Zakk is currently the lead guitarist and vocalist of Black Label Society. Known for his trademark “bulls-eye” guitar he was also the lead guitarist and co-writer for Ozzy after the death of the legendary Randy Rhoads.  Rhoads remains Wylde’s foremost guitar-playing and stagecraft influence.  Since forming BLS, Zakk has worked with Damageplan, Dope, Fozzy, Derek Sherinian, My Darkest Days,  Black Veil Brides, Allman Brothers to name a few.  He also played the lead guitarist for a band called Steel Dragon in the movie Rock Star, and TV credits include appearances on Californication,  Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Angel.

His most recent project announced at NAMM 2015 is called Wylde Audio which you just might get to see on the Axes & Anchors cruise!  He recently spoke with Guitar World, and stated:

“It’s the next logical step for me,” Wylde explains. “I’ve been blessed in my career so far; all my years with Ozz, all the companies I’ve worked with—it’s like putting the pinstripes on and playing for the Yankees. But I’ve always been a player. Now it’s time to go out and own a franchise.”  Among Wylde Audio’s first offerings will be a diverse line of guitars featuring distinct body shapes with both modern and retro twists. “I’m known as a Les Paul Custom guy, and then I also have the [Gibson] Vs and Moderne [of Doom], the signature things,” Wylde says. “But I want to do all different types of body shapes, because I’m a fan of all guitars.”
