ZAKK WYLDE Contributes To 'History Of America's Steel Combat Helmets' Documentary

Zakk Wylde and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY have contributed to a documentary on the history of U.S. combat helmets. "Steel Pots, The History of America's Steel Combat Helmets" features Zakk's acoustic version of "America the Beautiful" from his "1919 Eternal" CD.

"I interviewed Zakk at the Columbus Ozzfest for 'Guitar Digest' and asked his permission to use the cut," said Chris Armold, writer and producer of the DVD. "He enthusiastically approved it." The song is used in the outro of the DVD as the credits run. "It's a moving, stripped-down version of the song and it's a perfect fit," said Arnold.

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY fans who are interested can learn more about this DVD by visiting In addition, a portion of every DVD sold will be donated to the Yellow Ribbon Support Center, which aids active duty military personnel and their families. Chris plans to see Zakk when BLS rolls through Cincinnati and will ask Zakk to sign some special edition DVDs. "I'll auction those DVDs off and all the proceeds will go to the Yellow Ribbon Support Center," said Arnold.
