Default Black Label Society MC

Hey Guys,

Was riding down interstate 40 yesterday when a guy on a bagger passed me and waved, I noticed he had a Black Label Society patch on his vest. Anyone know about this club? I am in Winston Salem, are they based outta here?

I wonder what Zakk Wylde thinks of a bunch of old farts on baggers with his band name on their jackets - free advertising! that's what!

Black Label Society is NOT an M/C. Just a "patch" that some wear to support a band. Kinda like wearing you fav team hat. Sad thing is "usually" wearing your hat wont get your azz kicked like wearing that "patch" could.

Zakk's Website:
He's Ozzy's guitarist, has his own band too.
In support of the band they sell patch sets:
And Vests:

I'm a huge fan of the music, but I'm not really into the whole patch thing - dont wear vests either, I just like my t-shirts

[NOTE: this was copied from a posting by the BLS webmaster on Myspace. Thought it might clear this up]

Outside of the "Mother Chapter" (which is the
band itself) and the Doom Crew, Inc.
which is friends and family that
work for the band (or people that Zakk chooses to have close to
him).... There are no "official" chapters of BLS.
A Chapter is simply
the name that Zakk uses to refer to the many cities, states, countries,
provinces, etc. that the legion of BLS fans reside in.
BLS fans mean
far more to the band to just simply label them "Fans".

The band knows that their fans are huge supporters of what they do and
they want their fans to feel a real sense of belonging to something
much bigger and greater than just being a fan of a band.
because of the loyal support BLS fans show the band and each other, BLS
chooses to call their fans "family members" of Black Label and/or
"chapter members" of which ever city (chapter) BLS fans reside in.

As a result of this ideology, anyone who is a loyal supporter of BLS is
automatically considered an honorary chapter member of the Black Label
Society in whatever city or state they reside in.
Simply by living
where they live, being a supporter, and fan of BLS.
This also includes
following a code of ethics and conduct set forth by Zakk about how to
treat all things Black Label including how to treat fellow fans.
as simple as that.

Yes there are many groups of fans that have organized into core
And that is awesome! However, they are no more or no less a
chapter or a chapter member than any other fan or group of fans that
live in that particular city or state who bleeds Black Label.

For various different reasons (some legal and some personal) Zakk, the band, and management does not recognize any one group of people in any given city or state as the "official" chapter of that city or state.
BLS is not an organized or
official club.

In the eyes of Zakk and the rest of the Mother Chapter and the Doom
Crew, Inc.
, Every single fan/supporter in every city or state
(regardless of affiliation with an organized group or not) honorarily
represents his/her chapter of fans from that city or state.
There is
nothing "official" that anyone in any city or state has to do in order
to consider themselves a chapter member.

Just support the band, follow the rules, and be kind and respectful
to, and of all fellow BLS fans (i.e.
Chapter/Family Members), as well
as towards the band and Doom Crew, Inc members. That's it.

If you want to organize and have group hangouts, or listening
party's, or road trips, or BBQ's, or whatever.
GREAT! The more the
merrier! It's all about togetherness, family, fun, and sharing.
that doesn't exclude other fans from your particular city or state just
because they don't belong to your particular organized group or
All fans are honorary chapter members as long as they Bleed

As far as colors go...... Zakk retains the personal right to hand
out and honor recipients of the "band/crew" or "official" versions of
all front and back patches to band members, crew members, family, and
close friends as a personal gift from him, as well as for security
Zakk personally approves all recipients of the "official"
colors and does so at his discretion.

A record is kept of every individual who has received "official"
colors. Therefore, the band and crew know who has them and who doesn't.

There is no particular method towards being chosen to be honored with
them by Zakk.
It is fully at his discretion to determine the rhyme or

Basically if you have to ask why or how one is honored with them (or
how to get them from Zakk), then you are already traveling down the
wrong path. It's not really about how or why.
It's not about following
a road map to the colors or to Zakk or following some hidden
pre-ordained secret checklist of tasks to complete.
It just is what it

It is generally assumed in BLS circles that if one bleeds black
label and respects what BLS stands for, that they would respect and
honor what Zakk has asked to retain as personal to him.
Meaning that
people who "get-it" respect what Zakk has created here and only do what
he has authorized people to do and leave the rest to his discretion.

On that note BLS management has made the decision to allow the sale
of the "fan/supporter" versions of the BLS back patch set and front
patch sets (as individual items) as well as a denim vest complete with
a full set of "fan/supporter" versions of the patches on it.
www. Bravado. com and their affiliates is the only company that has been licensed to sell these items, and are the only items as far as colors/patches go that have been authorized for sale or purchase.

Leather vests can be purchased at any leather goods retailer.
Monkey Designs now sells the vest that was designed for Zakk to the
public at www. RedMonkeyDesigns. com.
Seek out a good tailor in your area who works with Leather to have your support patches applied. If you believe in Black Label and truly "Get it", then anything outside of these offerings are off limits, and you as a loyal supporter would respectfully allow Zakk to have and keep at his own discretion.

Much Love To All Family, Friends, and Supporters of The Mighty BLS!
