I used to call this band Black Wylde Society or Boozed Wylde Society or Boned Wylde Society or Brusied Wylde Society.
All because of this cover.
I love Zakk.
He can play, he solos and he writes killer riffs and songs.
He went from a scraggy pretty boy into a fierce Viking like warrior. He never pigeon holed himself, bringing his southern rock influences and piano, playing into the world of metal.
And the form of groove metal he plays with Black Label Society has influenced countless artists.
In this DVD, Robert Trujilo is on bass for the Detroit concert footage and Mike Inez is on bass for the Tokyo concert footage. Nick Catanese is on guitar and Craig Nunenmacher is on drums. Such a great band, it deserved to be captured on film.
The gig was that insane they ran out of alcohol at the bar.
And Zakk promotes it like a bikie gang, calling the Detroit Chapter to go insane and drink the place dry.
Well god damn it, they did.

Ha. What a rocker that must have been telling the crowd in Detroit of all places there is no beer!
I never fully got in to them, but the man can play. I like some of their stuff and they are great to pull out if I’ve been sitting in traffic too long and need a little pick me up.
I always throw in a post here and there about a song from an album.
