zakk_wylde_1376594963837I just wanted to take the time to wish the wild man Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne/Black Label Society) a very happy birthday. Zakk is a very important person in the metal world because at one time, it was Zakk and Dimebag Darrell who were keeping metal alive and were soldiering on in an age when guitar solos were disappearing. Zakk and Dime made it cool to do guitar solos and before you knew everyone in the metal world was trying to do false harmonics, but none can do it quite as well as The Lord Of The Pings Zakk Wylde. Zakk still to this day put on one of the most incredible performances when I saw him with Ozzy during The Merry Mayhem Tour back in 2001 and it’s one that I will never forget for as long as I live. When Zakk and Black Label Society released Mafia, it was an album that my best friend and I were absolutely obsessed with and couldn’t take it out of our CD players (that’s right I said CD!!!). Here are some of my favorite songs that involve Zakk Wylde and Happy Birthday to a true Axeman.
