Black Label Society Guitarist Who Isn’t Zakk Wylde Leaves Band
Guitarist Nick Catanese has reminded the world that he exists by parting ways with Black Label Society, the band which apparently does have other members besides Zakk Wylde.
Although Catanese has technically been a member of BLS since its inception in the late 90s, he has no recording credits on five of their eight studio albums, and no writing credits on eight of their eight studio albums. Although many musicians who have played with BLS over the years have plenty of other notable credits on their resumé, Catanese is not one of them. While researching this article, I discovered that he formed a band called Speed X with former Queensrÿche guitarist Mike Stone, but if you try to Google that band, the first thing that comes up is a MySpace page, so I think we can safely assume that project is pretty much dunzo.
Wylde has released the following statement with regards to Catanese’s departure:
A replacement no one will even notice is propped-up in the background somewhere is expected to be named soon.
