Zakk Wylde on Elton John Inspiring Him and New Album 'Book of Shadows II' Arriving 20 Years After Its Predecessor

Zakk Wylde has rolled the keys—more precisely, the Hammond B3 organ—back out for "Book of Shadows II," which arrives April 8 on eOne Music. The album echoes its predecessor in lyrics and tone and leans more on acoustic than electric guitar, although Wylde still delivers inspired, plugged-in solos on cuts like “Lay Me Down,” “Lost Prayer” and “Darkest Hour.”
