ZAKK WYLDE: The Rock And Roll Eagle Scout

The following item comes to us courtesy of

"Six-string sasquatch Zakk Wylde proved once again that he's the closest thing rock & roll has to an Eagle Scout, in terms of hoisting the 'be prepared' flag. Ozzy's guitarist was set to make an appearance on a Los Angeles radio show when the producers surprised him and his BLACK LABEL SOCIETY bandmates with word that they were also expected to perform for the listening audience. Rather than throw a tantrum, Wylde simply marched down the Sunset Strip and bought an entire set-up — guitars, amps and all -- for the occasion. We'll presume that he picked up a six-pack or two along the way, since he excused himself right before airtime to use the green room's 'facilities.' Station management couldn't quite convey the message that there were no bathroom options in the area before Wylde improvised, christening a nearby trash can with his, shall we say, essence. The merit badge is in the mail."
