On Ozzy and Zakk Wylde

Posted By on Mon, Jul 13, 2009 at 10:31 AM

OK, before I get to the subject of Zakk Wylde, here's a quick question - why is it that you have a hard time understanding any word when Ozzy Osbourne is talking, but when he sings, it's as clear as day? Even live... you can understand him singing, but when he talks between songs, it's gibberish. Always wondered about that...


Anyway, it seems like Ozzy is parting ways with guitarist Wylde. Apparently, Osbourne feels like his music is starting to sound too much like the Black Label Society. Personally, I always thought Black Label Society sounded a bit too much like Ozzy, but I guess when you have a guitarist doing a big part of the sound in both bands, it's bound to happen.

Rumor has it he'll interview John 5 and hold auditions to fill the space. Curious to see how it turns out. Ozzy always gets a great shredder. Before Wylde (who has been with Ozzy since 1987), it was Randy Rhodes.
