Giveaway - Bringing Metal to the Children


In honor of our friend Metal Jesus, HarperCollins has provided us with a pre-release copy of Zakk Wylde's new book, Bringing Metal to the Children: The Complete Berzerker's Guide to World Tour Domination. Win it before you can buy it!

Quote:
So you've watched the movies This Is Spinal Tap and Monty Python and the Holy Grail a hundred times each, and now you desire another brilliant opus to tickle your cranial sponge in a similar fashion. Well, look no further, fellow Berzerkers! Golden god Zakk Wylde and his brother-in-Metal Eric Hendrikx are about to take you on a Black Label Crusade of World Tour Domination, sharing never-before-told stories of backstage lunacy and Metal-maniacal anecdotes for the aspiring Berzerker like you.

Why would you need to buy this book about a modern-day Viking who strums his own fiddle for a living? You'd better ask yourself one simple question: Would you rather have us come beat the money out of you, or do you want to give it up the easy and painless way?

As a twenty-five-year veteran of the Ozzy Osbourne band and Black Label Society, Zakk Wylde has managed not only to stay alive against all odds but has also survived numerous attacks on his life by members of his own band, his wife, his children, his manager, and even his dogs. Among deranged tales of onstage indecent exposure and booze-fueled destruction, Wylde continues your Metal awakening with the sacred founding myths—explaining, for instance, how the forging of Metal in Valhalla begot the Black Label Empire—and lays out the battle-tested Rules of the Road.
How could you win? The easy EvAv way. Post a reply to this thread and one winner will be picked at random on April 1st!

I have seen Zakk a few time on tour, he puts on a great show. Seems like a cool guy to hang out with.

Too bad he doesn't play technical death metal. Still worth a read I'm sure.

Ha! Nice stuff. I'd totally get this for my nephew who's a talented musician in a heavy metal band. He'd love it.

My friend is one of the most metal people I know. Black label (and zakk in particular) are among his all time favorites.

No one can destroy the metal
The metal will strike you down with a vicious blow
We are the vanquished foes of the metal
We tried to win for why, we do not know
