ZAKK WYLDE Graces Cover Of New-Look GUITAR PLAYER Magazine

OZZY OSBOURNE/BLACK LABEL SOCIETY guitarist Zakk Wylde graces the cover of Guitar Player magazine's March 2004 issue.

This cover is not only a landmark issue for Guitar Player magazine, but also a milestone for Zakk Wylde, both personally and professionally. "I have always wanted to be on the cover of Guitar Player magazine since I was a kid," explains Wylde. "Back in the day, they were the only guitar magazine. I saw all my heroes on the cover and I still own those magazines to this day. Guitar Player magazine always has the real-deal serious players on the cover. It is an honor for me to be considered a player of the same caliber as my heroes."

The Zakk Wylde cover was designed by award-winning Pentagram Design. Guitar Player magazine now touts a bold new look and appeal. "We needed to have the perfect cover for this transition. Zakk was the obvious choice for us," states Michael Molenda, Editor-in-Chief of Guitar Player magazine. "Zakk appeals to everyone. The youth love him for his style of music he plays and our core readers respect him for being the unbelievable technician that he is. He marries both sides perfectly."

This commemorative issue is available on newsstands February 3, 2004.
