Black Label Society guitarist Zakk Wylde and his wife, Barbaranne, welcomed on their fourth child, a son named Sabbath Page Wielandt Wylde, on Wednesday, July 4th. Sabbath joins older siblings Hayley Rae, Hendrix and Jesse. Check out the beautiful baby photos below.
"VALHALLA JAVA ALMIGHTY BLACK LABEL!!! SABBATH PAGE WIELANDT WYLDE Has Come to Join The Mother Chapter!!!!" Wylde tweeted at the time. The infant, who is named after Black Sabbath, Jimmy Page and Wylde's father Jerome Wielandt, a World War II veteran. Hendrix's godfather is former L.A. Dodger/New York Met/metal fan Mike Piazza, while Jesse's is Zakk's former boss Ozzy Osbourne. We're waiting to see who will end up as little Sabb's godfather.
Zakk will have to break away from baby Sabbath to take part in the Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp this October 10-14 in Las Vegas. The camp continues to become a bigger attraction every year, not just for the fans and those willing to shell out for the experience, but for those in the industry willing to serve as instructors.
The annual event, now in its 15th year, will take place at the MGM Grand with KISS’ Gene Simmons, Vince Neil of Motley Crue, Sebastian Bach and Zakk as guest star performers. Rock star counselors include Lita Ford, Rudy Sarzo, Kip Winger, Phil Soussan, Kip Winger, Richie Kotzen, Kane Roberts, John Moyer and more. Get all the info here: www.rockcamp.com
Although stating that Pantera should leave the 14 years they had together untouched by a partial reunion, drummer Vinnie Paul recently said that if the band were to come together once again, Zakk Wylde would be the only man who can fill the spot of "Dimebag" Darrell. "I mean, [Zakk] and my brother were so tight. If [a Pantera reunion] ever were to happen, [Zakk] would be the guy [to step in for Dimebag]."
Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo responded to Vinnie Paul’s comments. "That is an interesting question, if anything like that would ever possibly happen. Vince and I would have to sit in the same room, hash out whatever differences that we have, and as far as Zakk Wylde goes, I am not too sold on that ’cause we have to hash some crap out too. That day has not come yet, and until that day comes, I can comment further on that, but till then it is just talk. It would be rough not to see Dimebag on stage to my left, I would feel naked."
Don't hold your breath on that Pantera/Zakk union happening, as Phil and his band Down have just announced an upcoming tour.
Zakk is also launching the BLS male lingerie line, believe it or not, with a report below. Look out for the release of 'Unblackened,' an acoustic-based DVD which is also set to drop later this year.
Aerosmith singer and American Idol judge Steven Tyler rocked Indianapolis this past Super Bowl weekend with former idol Carrie Underwood on CMT's 'Crossroads.' The two sang together on each others biggest songs and also sat down for some conversation segments, including this one where it seems as if Tyler is getting a little too touchy-feely. Underwood described herself as shy after Tyler said, "Looking sexy is a mindset." Underwood then mentioned how being on stage gives her a temporary self-confidence. "You can be whatever you want to be, and be a little unpredictable. I think that confidence ... that's sexy." Tyler agreed, adding with a touch on her arm, "I don't know how you can sing half the songs you do and not look sexy, anyway, because ... look who you are, girl. Come on." Check it out here.
Steven Tyler will take part in the Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp May 2-6 at the world-famous Playboy Mansion in Holmby Hills, California.
The Aerosmith frontman and American Idol judge is ready to rock with you at Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp. Jam with Tyler and join him onstage at the one and only Playboy Mansion. You'll be able to write and record an original song at a world-class recording studio with Led Zeppelin and The Beatles producer Eddie Kramer, and take home a professionally produced DVD and mp3 of your final performance.
Other rockers participating at the upcoming camp include: Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, David Lee Roth, Talas), Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio), Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Blue Oyster Cult, AniMetal USA), Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol) and Howard Leese (Heart, Bad Company), with more to be announced.
Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp was founded by David Fishof in 1997 as the ultimate music experience for the amateur or aficionado, pairing music lovers of all levels together with rock icons for a first-hand immersion in the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. Camp attendees move from spectator to band member, sharing the stage — and limelight — with rock legends for an once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The latest edition of Rock N' Roll Fantasy Camp wrapped up last weekend with a Playboy Mansion Finale. Paul Stanley of KISS and Lita Ford are featured in the rehearsal video below, but other rockers that were part of the latest session included: Kip Winger (Winger), Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Blue Oyster Cult), Bruce Kulick (KISS, Grand Funk Railroad), Howard Leese (Heart, Bad Company), Mark Hudson, Nils Lofgren (E Street Band, Neil Young), Chris Slade (AC/DC, The Firm), Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, David Lee Roth, Talas), Vinnie Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio), Jerry Shirley (Humble Pie, Fastway), Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol).
In a small rehearsal space on the fringes of North Hollywood, a band is working hard. Feeling their way several times through the Bo Diddley staple, 'Road Runner,' they're finally getting comfortable with each other. Then the band's leader decides to crack the whip.
She stops the band and issues a few orders. "You, come in harder after the first verse," she tells one of the two drummers. "And you," she tells the singer, "I want you to start singing up around here," before hitting the note she wants him to tackle.
The singer has a suggestion after that. "Tonight, I'm thinking of ripping my jacket off and kind of throwing it at a certain point." The boss thinks about it. "Okay," she says. "Do that."
Just another band rehearsal? Not really. The two drummers, two guitarists, bass player and vocalist, have just met a few days earlier. And the bandleader? The woman whose playing styles is as distinctive as her blonde hair and striking good looks: Lita Ford.
