BLACK LABEL SOCIETY singer/guitarist Zakk Wylde will be presenting a guitar to The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday, October 11 at 1:00 p.m. Wylde will present the instrument to Jim Henke, Vice President of Exhibitions and Curatorial Affairs at 1:00 p.m. in the Museum's FYE store.

The guitar is a 1985 Les Paul Custom Zakk received for graduation from his mother. Zakk had been saving all his money from mowing lawns for this guitar and was $350.00 shy of the amount needed to complete the purchase when his mother got the guitar paid off and presented it to Zakk for his graduation gift.

"I would visit this guitar [at the guitar store], like you would a dog that you wanted so badly, but could not get," Zakk recalled. "This is the real deal guitar. It has the most sentimental meaning to me that I cannot place into words. My mother bought it for me."

After the presentation, Wylde will sign copies of the new BLACK LABEL SOCIETY CD, "The Blessed Hellride", and DVD, "Boozed, Broozed and Broken Boned". In order to participate in the signing, you must buy the new CD or DVD at any area FYE store and present the receipt at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 11.
