Zakk Wylde To Release ‘Bringing Metal To The Children’ In May 2011!

Zakk Wylde To Release ‘Bringing Metal To The Children’ In May 2011!

William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers today announced plans to release on May 10, 2011 the handbook to all things heavy metal: BRINGING METAL TO THE CHILDREN by Zakk Wylde, guitar legend and Black Label Society frontman. Wylde invites all who dare onto the tour bus for tales of glory, debauchery, and general mayhem. The book is co-authored by Eric Hendrikx.

In BRINGING METAL TO THE CHILDREN, Zakk Wylde, 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. The twenty-five year music veteran of the Ozzy Osbourne band and Black Label Society details his survival techniques for maintaining a life on the road, managing a band of raging vikings, and somehow making it on stage and blowing the crowd away night after night.

Beginning with Wylde’s “true rocker test” (TRT), the reader answers and self-scores ten questions to determine if he is a true rocker and should continue reading, or if he’s just a complete tool who needs to hand the book to someone more metal. Wylde continues the journey with his epic stories about life on the road, using his Black Label Society (BLS) coaching techniques to instruct the reader on proper touring hygiene, pre-concert preparations, and post-show etiquette. The road stories include wild nights with many of heavy metal’s 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 surviving a mosh pit and plans for how to set up a shooting range on the tour bus.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

In the two decades since Ozzy Osbourne hired him away from his job at a New Jersey gas station, Zakk Wylde has established himself as a guitar icon known and revered the world over.  Wylde has won nearly every guitar award imaginable, graced countless magazine covers and is a major influence to a new battalion of rock guitarists.  Writing and recording with Osbourne led to multi-platinum success, inspiring him to create the now iconic Black Label Society in 1998.  In the decade plus since, BLS has turned the notion of what a rock band should be upside down by inspiring legions of fans (known as Berserkers) all over the world to follow the mantra: Strength, Determination, Merciless, Forever (SDMF for short).  Wylde and his Berserkers have established a heavy metal institution true to the vision of uncompromising, unfiltered and unrestrained rock ‘n’ roll.  To date, Black Label Society has sold more than 3.5 million albums worldwide and continues to be a massive presence on the worldwide touring and merchandising circuits.  Black Label Society’s latest album, ORDER OF THE BLACK, was released in August, 2010 and debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart.
Writer, photographer, and fellow Berserker Eric Hendrikx is a notable contributor to more than a dozen books including Forrest Griffin’s New York Times bestsellers Got Fight? and Be Ready When the Sh*t Goes Down. A lifelong musician, Hendrikx played guitar in the rock band Snake River Conspiracy and toured with bands including Queensrÿche. He currently lives in Southern California with his son Stone.

Sylvester Stallone’s ‘The Expendables’ Explodes Onto Blu-ray and DVD!

Sylvester Stallone’s ‘The Expendables’ Explodes Onto Blu-ray and DVD!

It was a feat that many said couldn’t be done. The mission? To gather an all-star cast consisting of the biggest names in action movie history and put the into one explosive flick that oozes testosterone! It was an action movie fans’ wet dream but questions still remained: Could it be done and who could pull it off? As it turns out, there was only one man was brave enough to take on this ultimate challenge. A man who wasn’t afraid to take it to the edge and beyond. That man is none other than the iconic Sylvester Stallone. One of the most influential action heroes of all time, Stallone teamed with writer David Callaham to lay the ground work for The Expendables. Once the ball was rolling, Stallone made calls to the biggest names in action cinema and the rest was history! Answering Stallone’s call to arms for the over-the-top action that the fans have been craving a were a mix the hottest action stars from today and yesteryear, such as Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews and Mickey Rourke. To round out the cast, Sly even managed to wrangle two cameos from sliver screen superpowers Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis.

The story begins simply enough, a group of mercenaries are hired for a mission that no one else is brave enough to tackle: Infiltrate a small South American country and overthrow it’s diabolical dictator. The story focuses mainly on Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), who are the real deal when it comes to a modern day action duos. Once the mission is underway, the mercs realize things aren’t exactly what they seem and all hell breaks loose — much to the delight of action junkies worldwide! Outgunned and outnumbered Ross and Christmas scramble back to The States to assemble their team, only to return to the island and dish out piping hot servings of street justice!

For me, The Expendables not only offers a nostalgic gaze back to the films that I discovered in the mom and pop video stores of my suburban youth. At it’s core, The Expendables is a triumphant return to the classic action cinema of the mid-to-late 80s that made icons out of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Having been raised on the work of many of the actors involved, it was a dream come true to see the finally united onscreen. Not only does the film fill an obvious void in action cinema, I found the film serves as an homage to the films of my father’s youth that featured iconic casts, such as The Wild Bunch, The Magnificent Seven and The Dirty Dozen. While it won’t win any awards for it’s plot, the movie has it where it counts when it comes to action and wastes no time getting down to the nitty gritty. The film is a knock-down, drag out, over the top 80s throwback action blast that represents some of the best qualities of the 80s action flicks on which star/director Sylvester Stallone cut his teeth. Guns, muscles, car chases, explosions, martial arts, beautiful women and a plethora of one lines, The Expendables has it all! Hopefully, we won’t have to wait another decade to see these superpowers re-team!

Rated: 4.5 out of 5

The Expendables explodes onto Blu-Ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand on November 23rd!
