ZAKK WYLDE: 'The Reason I Drink Is Because I Enjoy Copping A Beer Buzz'

September 30, 2010

Kevin Coffey of the Omaha World-Herald recently conducted an interview with Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE). A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

On his previous drinking habits:

"I didn't drink because my dad used to throw me down flights of stairs or my mom and dad didn't hug me enough. The reason I drink is because I enjoy copping a beer buzz. Ozzy used to ask, 'What in the hell happened last night?' Every night was 'Animal House', it really was Delta, you know?"

On quitting drinking:

"How did I quit drinking? I stopped. How do I learn how to play the guitar? I practiced. I'll still go to Hooters, and you drink the real stuff and I'll drink the fake stuff. I really couldn't care less, dude."

On his upcoming guitar instructional book:

"It's like me showing you how to juggle. It looks really complicated, but you just have to watch the one ball and you can do it. I'm putting a DVD in there that shows you how to play my actual solos from Ozzy, PRIDE & GLORY, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and everything."

On BLACK LABEL SOCIETY playing many tracks from its recently released album, "Order of the Black":

"Why make a record and only put one song in off the new album? You should almost approach it like this is our first album. We should be able to play everything."
