KNAC.COM caught up with Zakk on his day off in Ottawa recently to get caught up on all things Zakk & Black Label.

"Itís been non-fucking stop, but after Quebec (March 14th) we have six weeks off. Iím going to be home having mass quantities of sex with my wife, hang with my kids, clean up Rottweiler crap, lift weights and just jam. Then we start firing up from June to September. Weíre going to be out kicking ass at Ozzfest. Weíre opening up the main stage and then with whatever is left of it, Iíll be going up with Ozzy to kick some ass. Iíll be doing double duty with both Black Label and Ozzy. Itís beyond brutal, but in pure Black Label fashion we got to get it done. So, itís going to happen," grunts Zakk. "At Ozzfest, weíll have Craig Nunenmacher (New Orleans Chapter) and Nick Cantenese (Pittsburgh Chapter). Iíll find out whatís happening with Mike Inez, or we may just have Robert Trujillo. Weíll see if Robert wants to do double duty as well."

Though Zakk is looking forward his time off, he still be very busy. "We just recorded a live show (with Ozzy) at the Budokan (in Japan) and weíve got to come up with four bonus tracks. I had written "Bleed For Me," "Demise Of Sanity," "Graveyard Disciples," "Bridge To Cross," "Life, Birth, Blood, Doom," -- the majority of the whole goddamn 1919 Eternal record for Ozzy, but weíll just go in a room, jam and come up with four slamminí tunes and then have Ozzy come in and sing his ass off on them."

As for Black Label, Zakk reveals, "Weíre talking about doing a DVD. Iíve got a bunch of live stuff from the last tour. Iíll repackage Hardcore Volume I and Iím thinking of doing another one. Plus, the other day, I phoned Rob Zombie to see if he wanted to direct a video for us and heís going to do the video for "Bleed For Me." There is also the Black Label heads that Marshall is making. Iíve got to sign 600 letters of authenticity for that. The brutality is never going to stop!"
