So I’m perusing through the Blabbermouth as I usually do in the morning and one of the news bits is Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society announcing yet another new drummer in what seems like a endless line of them. And this time it appears that Breaking Benjamin’s drummer Chad Szeliga is the next guy on the skins. I guess that’s news in the fact that a alt pop rock band’s drummer will be playing southern tinged blues metal of sorts. But to me that’s not the eye catcher. Along with the news article is this little thing.
In this digital age we’re hand writing press releases? And who talks like this? I counted 6 times where the words Black Label were used together and the word black by itself a few more times. Either Zakk truly thinks his band is a biker gang, a cult, or constantly has to remind himself and his fans of what the band’s name is. Regardless I found the whole thing to be pretty amusing.
