In the WTH??!! category of music news, I just ran across this today. Man, normally I would have been on top of this when it was announced... but I digress.


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.'”

Loudwire.com, June 5, 2017 - Zakk Wylde Was Asked to Rejoin Ozzy Osbourne’s Band Because Gus G. ‘Couldn’t Do It’

Spoken as only Brother Zakk can do it! You can tell that he is on the radio because it is not a profanity laced answer!

Don't know who Zakk Wylde is? Here is a little song he wrote that you might have heard. PS - Zakk has a killer version on Alcohol Fueled Brewtality - Live, but due to a fecund use of the f-bomb T&C don't allow me to play it. Check it out if you haven't heard it. I think it is the most played song on my ipod.

If the Aftershock tour is coming to your town you will get to witness the Blessed Hellride in its full brutality. Oh, and A Perfect Circle and NIN.

:rawk: (there really needs to be a 'horns' emoticon because sometimes things just rock)

Or perhaps....

Zakk's guitar sound and playing in Mr Tinkertrain is dirty and still raises my pulse ... Awesome.

Good to see the guys getting back together , I'll buy a ticket to see that.

Anti-flag? Steel Panther?? Who knew they were still around! Gotta love them Suicidal Tendencies although with Bob playing with some band called Metallica, I wonder who is picking up the bass duties. Hum?

Bob and Zakk were together in Black Label Society (Bother Zakk's band).

I've seen Ozzy with Gus G., I would love to see him and Zakk. Sacramento... [Napoleon Dynamite voice] "lucky..."

Zakk never did it for me. When I first started expanding my musical taste in ingested ozzy. Pretty much over him too. Still dig him with sabbath though.
If you like zakk check YouTube for the generation axe shows. Him. Tosin abasi
Nuno bettencourt
Yngwie
Vai
Def cool if that's your scene. I watched a lot of it and tosin stood out to me in every show
Sorry to derail but wanted to give you heads up

No derail. I can roll with the punches. And rock with jabs!

It's music and it is all good to me!

Right on man
Will not here me say it's bad. Just not my bag.
Zakk is nasty for sure though. He put the time in. Just don't play stuff that pleases me. I would give one of my marbles to be able to play like him though.
If I can play like him I can play other #

LOL!

He is talented. I just tired of the sweep arpeggio thing. At least Zakk bends his strings. And varies the tempo and song styles.

Yes, it is better louder!

Great news! Nobody can filet that Mr. Crowley solo better than Zakk. It may sound blasphemous, but he's much cleaner than Randy Rhodes ever was.

Randy Rhodes created it, if he didn't give it a clean sound it wasn't meant to sound clean.

I don't want to turn this into a Zakk V Randy debate but perhaps you should watch this.
