Zakk Wylde True Identity.

Black Label Society.

Mister Wylde had made a long way since his debut with mister “Oz”!

With his band Black Label Society, from the first album "Sonic Brew," we could see the true face of Zakk and hear for the first time his booming voice. In the beginning I was not a big fan, I found it a bit abrupt change, and I think that deep down myself, I waited to see the magic powder of Ozzy twirl around of Black Label compositions. But who am I to demand such excess? Certainly the Ozbourne school was a good one for Zakk, but we often forget that all these artists, all these musicians are wholly beings who are “traped”in a rock fomation where the leaders make almost all the musical decisions. Out of there band, they all have their unique identity and way of composing regardless of the musical direction they are again straped to. I think the best example is when "Kiss" ask to its members to make each a solo album. We have heard who were Kiss and who were less ... Regarding Mr. Wylde, well, a rock that hits accompanied of course whit guitar so to say "Electrifying’ guitar play.

Zakk spoke to the team of guitare.com, here's the interview:

 

 

In the most unexpected guitar news of this year's NAMM show in Anaheim, California, Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE) has launched his own range of guitars and amps under his new brand Wylde Audio, with more products to follow. Guitar.com editor in chief Adam St. James got a private viewing of what Zakk's been up to. Check out the clip below.

 

Wylde, who was previously sponsored by such companies as Gibson, Marshall, Dunlop and Electro-Voice, tells Billboard.com: "It's beyond an honor to have a signature anything. I still have great relationships with those companies, just like with Ozzy and [Osbourne's wife/manager] Sharon. I still love them, and you still talk to your folks, and you still hook up with them on the holidays."

Wylde says that there are plans for Wylde Audio to include "everything down to studio plug-ins with ProTools. Headphones. Anything you can think of audio: cable, strings; we'll be involved in that."
