Our cover feature this issue is with none other than metal legend, Zakk Wylde. It was as always, a pleasure to catch up with following his incredibly busy last 12 months that include reuniting with Ozzy Osbourne a recording a brand new Black Label Society release, 'Grimmest Hits', that's taking metal fans by storm.
To accompany our cover feature, Nick Jennison offers up a phenomenal Zakk Wylde Tech Session, which you won’t want to miss.
We also chat with German guitar virtuoso, Michael Schenker who is back with an explosive new album 'Resurrection'. Recorded with singers and musicians associated with Michael in previous decades, the aptly-titled new record sees Schenker embracing his past to build something new and exciting, and it is indeed a stellar return to form.
Also in this issue, the Guitar Interactive team visit Norman's Rare Guitars in Tarzana, California and chat with founder, Norman Harris, resident guitar expert, Mark Agnesi, plus we take a closer look at some hidden six-string gems inside the legendary music store.
