BLACK LABEL SOCIETY/OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist Zakk Wylde went into the studio on Tuesday, January 24 to lay down his version of a LYNYRD SKYNYRD classic for the upcoming tribute album, "Heavy Helping", due later in the year via Sanctuary Records. Other artists that have reportedly contributed to the CD include METALLICA, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, SEBASTIAN BACH, KID ROCK, SALIVA, and Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER).
C.O.C.'s contribution reportedly comes in the shape of their version of LYNYRD SKYNYRD's "On the Hunt", recorded with longtime producer John Custer in his Raleigh studio and at Sonic Wave. Meanwhile, Bach's version of "I Ain't The One" (tracked on Nov. 28, 2004 at BeatStreet Recording studio in New York City) marks the first time the former SKID ROW singer's new lineup (featuring TESTAMENT/SADUS bassist Steve DiGiorgio and ex-ICED EARTH guitarist Ralph Santolla) has recorded together. More information will be made available soon.
