Wylde Called The Album “Great”
After previously saying he won’t be involved on Ozzy Osbourne’s new album, Zakk Wylde now shares that he’ll be playing the rhythm guitar on the record. Osbourne recently shared that he enlisted the help of guitar heroes Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton, and now it seemed like Wylde had joined the star-studded lineup.
In a new interview with Music Radar, Wylde talked about appearing on the follow-up to 2020’s Ordinary Man.
“The new Ozzy stuff is sounding great,” he said. “And for sure, it’s an honour to play on a record with all my heroes. It’s pretty cool… I can’t wait for everyone to hear it. I’ve always loved Blow By Blow and Wired, but honestly every record Jeff Beck has put out is amazing.”
Speaking about the Osbourne and Beck collaboration, Wylde teased: “It definitely sounds slamming.”
“The same goes for all the guys – what Tony Iommi played, and then Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, it’s all killer for sure,” he continued. “On those tracks I’m playing rhythm guitar for my heroes… it’s crazy! It sounds awesome and I’m beyond honoured to be doing it.”
Wylde was playing on Osbourne’s No More Tours 2 before their touring schedule was affected by the pandemic.
