William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers today announced plans to publish 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 deal was acquired for World Rights, all languages by William Morrow which had the project on exclusive submission from Adam Korn at DeFiore and Company. The book will be edited by Associate Editor Will Hinton.
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.
