Black Label Society, Hatebreed, Butcher Babies
Jan. 18, 2015
There are guitar solos that serve songs and there are displays of self-aggrandizing guitarsturbation that are pointless. I'd say Wylde's moments in the spotlight are somewhere in between. They lean more toward self-serving, sure, but how many guitarists out there can do what he does with the same level of speed and skill? The now 48-year-old had to fill the shoes of deceased Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads — when he was 19. To metal fans, Wylde is a guitar god.
The night opened with a 30-minute set by the two-female fronted Butcher Babies and a 45-minute set from Hatebreed — both of which will return to Charlotte in May for Carolina Rebellion and did solid jobs of getting the crowd ready for Wylde and Co.
