Black Label Society Records Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute
Band Photo: Metallica (?)
Black Label Society went into the studio recently to record a cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd's 1977 classic "I Never Dreamed" for the upcoming Skynyrd tribute album "Heavy Helping" being released by Sanctuary records, which is slated to include Zakk, Corrosion Of Conformity, Metallica, Sebastian Bach, Kid Rock, Saliva, Dee Snider and more.
When asked why he chose that particular Skynyrd song, Zakk replied, "I've always loved that tune. I'm not going to do 'Sweet Home' or 'Free Bird', all the shit you always hear on the radio. Pick some obscure Skynyrd song and make it your own. We Black Labelized the whole damn thing. It came out slammin'! Actually, we're going to put it on our record (Mafia, due out March 8th) as well. It'll probably be the bonus track at the end of the album. So it'll be on both. It's just more publishing for the Skynyrd guys."
As far as a release date for "Heavy Helping," Zakk was unsure. "I have no idea. But with all the other bands that are on there, I'm sure it's going to be amazing. I can't wait to hear it."
