Zakk Wylde Says ‘It Was A Blast’ Playing On Ozzy’s New Album ‘Patient Number 9’
Zakk Wylde was recently interview by Eonmusic in the UK and talked about Ozzy’s ‘slammin’ new album and the chances of reviving his band Pride & Glory.
Wylde was in the UK last month to play Download with Black Label Society and talked about Ozzy’s new “Patient Number 9” album, “The album is slammin’. Him and Andrew [Watt, producer] wrote the record. The stuff’s slammin’, and then Ozzy’s singing great, and I get to put my little fiddly-diddly bits all over it.”
Wylde went on, “Being on an album with Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Lord Iommi [Tony Iommi], I mean, if you would have told me when I was 15 years old that I’m going to be on a record with Ozzy, Tony Iommi, Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton, I would have been, ‘Forget it. Lights out.’ It’s a huge honor, man.”
Zakk also talked about the possibility of Pride & Glory coming back, “Yeah, we could always do that. I mean, Jamo’s playing with Megadeth now, Father Brian’s with The Dead Daisies. Yeah, we’re still all buddies, so there’s no reason why we couldn’t do it. Just go up to the Vatican [studio], and we could even make another record, let alone, or just tour on the one that we did, you know what I mean? So yeah, we could always do that.”
Ozzy’s “Patient Number 9” album has a September 9 release date.
Curious what you think… Randy Rhoads aside, Zakk Wylde is the best guitarist to play in Ozzy Osbourne’s band, right?
