CHICAGO – As Ozzfest, the summer music jam anchored by Ozzy Osbourne, rolls through Chicago on Tuesday, August 17th, former Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde brought his new band, Black Label Society, to rock at the fest. He also had time to greet fans here on Monday at Borders Books State Street.

Wylde has played with Osbourne on and off since the 1980s, at the same time founding Black Label Society in the 1990s. He has released nine albums with his band and is considered a preeminent guitar hero.

Thanks-Actually my work has and did appeared in Rolling Stone and most other now defunct Rock and Roll Magazines back in the day.I prefer to stay in Chicago for both personal and professional reasons.Twenty five years ago people told me I could never survive as a Chicago based celebrity publicity photog without relocating to the coasts.I always believed if you build it they will come.And they did.This is why working for Hollywoodchicago is such a great match.

  • Punk Punk

    CHICAGO – For theater that is audaciously in-the-now and generates a sparkle of life, there are few better storefront (garage, gothic gathering place) groups than “Nothing Without a Company.” Their latest, eclectic kick-in-the-head production is the intensely diverting and weirdly fun “Punk Punk.”

  • Assassination Theater

    CHICAGO – There are two dates in modern American History that ring in the heads of certain generations. Of course, there is September 11th, 2001, but the granddaddy of that date is November 22nd, 1963. That is when an American president, John F. Kennedy, was shot point blank in the head and killed on the street of an American city. The official proclamation from the government is that a lone assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, fired those shots. In a new Chicago play, “Assassination Theater,” subtitled “Chicago’s Role in the Crime of the Century,” the jury is still decidedly out.
