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.
Pantera’s ‘Vulgar Display of Power’ Deluxe Edition CD/DVD now available for pre-order, Philip Anselmo to launch Housecore Horror Film Festival in October 2013
February 25, 2012 marked the 20-year anniversary for Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power, a landmark album widely acknowledged as one of metal's most enduring and influential masterworks. Recorded by singer Philip Anselmo, guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, bassist Rex Brown and drummer Vinnie Paul, the album has been certified double platinum by the RIAA and features several of the group's most iconic songs including "Walk," "Mouth For War," "This Love," and "Fucking Hostile."
To celebrate, Rhino channels the album's relentless blitzkrieg of musical aggression onto a two-disc Deluxe Edition. The collection features the debut of "Piss," an incendiary blast of vintage Pantera from the original recording sessions. It remained lost until Vinnie Paul rediscovered the track while going through the band's vault.
Along with the unreleased song, Vulgar Display Of Power (Deluxe Edition) also features unreleased video of the quartet performing six songs at the Monsters Of Rock show in Reggio Emilia, Italy on September 12, 1992. The set list draws almost exclusively from Vulgar ("This Love," "Rise" "Mouth For War"), but also includes the title track from their previous album, Cowboys From Hell, and a melding of Vulgar s "Hollow" and Cowboys "Domination," which was a live staple of the band.

Pantera/Down frontman Philip Anselmo, a renowned horror hound who absolutely loves that film genre, will launch his first-ever Housecore Horror Film Festival in Austin, Texas. However, the festival, named after the singer’s label, is scheduled for October 2013.
A surefire way to take the sting off the news that you’ll have to wait 18 months to enjoy Anselmo’s horror offerings, is to tell yourself that Anselmo and his team will be putting together all their efforts to make it the best, most terrifying and most blood-chilling horror film festival in existence. That, metalheads, takes time.
The Austin Chronicle revealed that Anselmo and BloodyDisgusting.com true crime writer Corey Mitchell are working together on the event. Mitchell, who has partnered up with Anselmo to write the Pantera/Down singer’s autobiography, was quick to point out that the Housecore festival is not planned as a rival or a foil to the Fantastic Fest.
Anselmo is an avowed horror fan, having co-founded the House of Shock Halloween attraction in his beloved New Orleans. He is no longer affiliated with the House, even though he once worked a a part-time actor — scaring the crap out of people.

Bret Michaels of Poison kicks off Arizona Bike Week with a free show tonight (Mar. 25) at Harley-Davidson of Scottsdale, and will spend the summer on the road with Poison, Def Leppard and Lita Ford. He has also announced more contributors to his upcoming solo album.
Michaels talked to azcentral.com to promote his appearance, and let loose with more details about 'Get Your Rock On,' which features the Supercross theme song ('Get Your Ride On') and guest appearances by Jimmy Buffett, Ace Frehley, Loretta Lynn and more.
Bret said, "Really amazing record. I put a lot of hard work into this. And everyone that's on it, I'm not only friends with but fans of. I've got Ace Frehley from Kiss and Michael Anthony from Van Halen. I redid "Nothin' But a Good Time" and played everything on it but the lead guitar and bass. Ace Frehley plays the solo and Michael Anthony plays bass. Then, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" has Joe Perry from Aerosmith and Hugh McDonald from Bon Jovi. And it's got Loretta Lynn singing it with me. Then, Jimmy Buffett, me and him did "Margaritaville" live.
Q: It's star-studded.
A: Yeah. But it's all people I know. Vinnie Paul from Pantera. They're all friends of mine. The best one -- are you ready for this? -- I remade "Sweet Home Alabama" with the guys from Lynyrd Skynyrd playing and singing on it. Gary Rossington and Rickey Medlocke are on it. I wanted them to hear what I had done. I gave it a really cool feel. And they were like, "This is awesome."
We'll see if Bret can complete his wish list of by getting Stevie Nicks on the record, who he has mentioned he really wants in the past.
A release date for the album hasn't been set, but it’s possible the album will arrive just as Michaels hits the road with his Poison bandmates this June.
