In late April, it was announced that Zakk Wylde had officially rejoined Ozzy Osbourne‘s band, replacing his own successor, Gus G., who had been with the group since 2009. With Black Sabbath in the rearview mirror, the focus now is back on Ozzy’s solo career and Wylde explained how we came to find himself back within the Prince of Darkness’ ranks.
Speaking with 98.9 The Rock at Rockfest in Kansas City, Kan., Wylde explained, “Oz called up. He said at this juncture Gus couldn’t do it. And he said, ‘Who else could get the dishes as clean and the linens as fluffy as they were back in the day?’ So that’s the reason why. It really has nothing to do with the guitar playing. It’s just because Gus couldn’t do it. So they’re, like, ‘Well, we’ll let him play guitar while he’s here anyway doing dishes and linens.'”
