Ozzy Osbourne has chosen yet again to not use his touring guitarist Zakk Wylde on his new album he is near completing.
Wylde told SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation, “I always support the boss. My relationship with him’s bigger than the music. If Barb [Zakk’s wife Barbaranne] just said, ‘Zakk, [Ozzy] and Sharon are gonna go out and have dinner with friends or whatever.’ If he said, ‘Zakk, can you do me a favor? Come over here and feed the dogs. I’m gonna be gone for three days.’ [I would say] ‘Yeah, whatever you want.
And I’ll bring some milk and eggs on the way over as well.’ Yeah, that’s my relationship with him. We’re still talking and everything like that — texting each other. It’s all good.”
Zakk said he’s ready to tour with Ozzy, “If Ozz calls me up and he’s, like, ‘Zakk, we’ll jam on Tuesday. We’ve got rehearsals on Tuesday,’ I’d go down there, and then we’d go over the tunes. And then off we go.”
Zakk praised songs he listened to from Ordinary Man. “It came out cool. I saw the videos and everything like that. It’s cool, man. And Andrew [Watt] and everything like that — yeah, it was rocking.
