BLS leader Zakk Wylde sat down for a photo shoot and Q&A session during the tour, discussing things like their passionate fan base, his health issues, and, Zakk explains his mantra: “Strength, Determination, Merciless, Forever.”

“The whole motivation is adversity,” explains Wylde. “Life’s a mountain; the Black Label way is we’re either going to through it, around it, over it, underneath it or dismantle it.”

In other BLS news, Zakk recently teamed up William Shatner to record a cover of the Black Sabbath classic “Iron Man,” for Shatner’s upcoming new album, “Seeking Major Tom,” due out later this year.
