Nervous Breakdown spoke with Epiphone's Zakk Wylde about his new book, Bringing Metal to the Children, which offers practical advice for young rockers on how to make it--and not make it--in the music business. But it's not just a book for kids or musicians.

"No, I guarantee you that a majority of guys that we know, if they read the book, they’ll be crying laughing because they’ll know what I’m talking about," said Wylde. But the book, to me, reads more like us sitting in a pub, just talking, you know what I mean? But it’s the truth though."

Look for Zakk this summer on the Ozzy and Friends tour which also features our man Slash. “Gus G., Blasko and Tommy (Clufetos) are coming out and doing a bunch of tunes, then I come out with Blasko and Tommy and we end up doing a bunch of stuff from the era when I was with The Boss," said Wylde. "Then Geezer comes out and we do a bunch of Sabbath stuff and at the end, Slash and everybody – Geezer, Slash, Gus – and we all play ‘Paranoid.’”
