ZAKK WYLDE’S “WE ARE THE WORLD”
What the fucking fuck is going on in this clip from Fuse’s television version of the Talking Metal podcast? I don’t even mind the song so much – I have a soft spot for pretty ballads sung by big brutish metal dudes – but what’s up with the “We Are the World”-style gathering around the mic, and the slow fades of Zakk emoting in the studio, and the velveeta dripping from every pore of this clip?
By the way, the song is called “‘Till the End.” I have no idea where it comes from, but it’s not on any Black Label Society albums, to the best of my knowledge.
Also, that is current Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal on guitar. Kinda funny, considering Zakk nearly joined GN’R about thirteen years back.
