1.) Is SDMFworldwide.com the official website for Zakk?
We are not the official site.
The official site can be found here:
However, I I guess we could be called "the official fan-site," as
we do get the majority of our information directly from the band
themselves and Roadrunner
Records. But since we are a fan-site, some of our
information is aquired from un-official sources and may not be
completely accurate, however we try our best to accurately represent
Zakk and Black Label Society. Zakk, his wife
Barb, Nick Catanese, Fred Kowalo, and people from Roadrunner
regularly and let us know if something
2.) Where can I
find all of the latest news for BLS, and Zakk?
Our website (not just the message board, the site itself)
has all of the latest news on Zakk, whether it's Ozzy, BLS, or any other project: www.SDMFworldwide.com
happened to www.BlackLabelSociety.net, and why did the bootlegs and site
content move to SDMFworldwide.com?
make a long story short, I was unhappy working with Walter, the owner of
BLS.net, and became aware that the band and their management
felt the same way at the time. I took all of my content that I created
while I was the webmaster there, and created my own site. Therefore, as
1st, 2004, SDMFworldwide.com was born. Unfortunately,Walter
resurrected his site months after SDMFworldwide.com went live, and he still
continues to use all of the content that I brought to the table (most of
which is still out of date, as it is ever-changing), therefore, both websites
now exist. However, ours still has all of the bootlegs, which
I personally host. BLS.net still is the best place to go for more up to
date tablature, but everything else can be found within this site.
4.) When is Zakk/BLS
coming to my town/country/state?
Any information we have on tour dates can
be found on the main page. If they
aren’t there, chances are you won’t find them on the message
board either, because we don’t know! Likewise, tour dates are posted
as soon as we know them.
can I ask the band questions?
Nick Catanese answers questions
on both the official BLS site, www.ZakkWylde.com,
and also at
his own website,
www.EvilTwinHQ.com or www.NickCatanese.com.
But please do not ask him about tour dates. He is not their tour manager,
ask. Feel free to ask whatever else you want, within reason. He is a busy
so he can't always answer questions right away, but usually he always answers
them. Other band members have private email addresses, and Zakk does not
use computers, therefore, you cannot ask him anything at this time. Be
sure to check out the official
BLS myspace where you can find band members'
personal accounts as well if you would like to ask them questions.
6.) Where can I get Black Label
Society jacket patches or vests?
Vests and BLS patches are controlled by Zakk,
and only given to people that he
wear them, specifically people directly
associated with the band. However, replica patches
that are extremely similar to the back patches of the band's vests are
available through BravadoUSA.com.
Most of the front patches of the vests have not been sold to the public,
as they are for the band and crew only.
7.) How did Zakk get the job playing
Zakk got the job playing for Ozzy when Ozzy’s photographer
Mark Wiess saw Zakk playing in a New Jersey club and suggested he audition
for Ozzy. Zakk is not now, nor has he
Ozzy’s drug dealer. That was a joke Zakk has made during various interviews.
For more information on Zakk's career, don't hesitate to read the entire
Biography section! It's the most complete outline of Zakk's entire career
on the internet.
8.) How can I join a Chapter?
BLS ‘Chapters’ system
is not any sort of official club or organization, it is just a way to describe
a BLS fan from a certain area. For example, if
you are a BLS fan and live in New Jersey, you are automatically a member of
the New Jersey Chapter.
9.) What kind of equipment does
Zakk plays the following equipment: A Gibson Les Paul Zakk Wylde
custom model, with
81 and 85
JCM 800 amplifiers with 6550 tubes,
the Boss SD-1 overdrive pedal, the Boss CE-1 Superchorus pedal, the Jimi Hendrix
Wah, and a Dunlop Rotovibe. More information can be found here: www.SDMFworldwide.com/gear.htm
does Zakk use his Boss SD-1 Pedal when playing live?
SD-1 pedal is always turned on, except in-between songs and during breaks
question is not answered here, chances are, you will find an answer somewhere
on the SDMFworldwide.com
website, perhaps in the Random Knowledge section,
the Biography which has extensive details about Zakk,
his career, and his past and present
band members, or elsewhere on the site.
