    Zakk Wylde in '91



    This is great.

    I watched almost every bit of that one night. I think there was a description of how it went down in one of the videos by a guy who worked at the store. Zakk was playing through some Peavey amp or somethin’ here and not a 5150. If I remember right, the dude picked Zakk up from the airport, guitar in hand and drove him over just for that. Seem to recall something about Zakk just slamming beers back as soon as he got off the plane but I could be mixing that up with another Zakk story.

    Hahahah, every now and then you get a “Fuck Sadam Hussein!”….probably a couple “Burn Iraq to the ground”s….

        Could be an Ultra120 in the video. Those were good amps.

          Yeah they were! My cousin had an Ultra120 stack that I borrowed for a summer, it was the first stack I ever played through actually.

            Unreal. I love baby Zakk, and so did those throngs of early 90's girls

            He was really letting the Jimi flow in these jams. Awesome video.

              What always amazed me about zakk's playing is how little he actually moves his arm. it's all hand. even those crazy runs he's barely moving position.

              What's sad about this video is that he's a non jittery post-drunk. Watching a modern video with him, he's just clearly fried too many brain cells.

                I’m surprised he’s even in that good on condition. He said he always stayed away from the harder drugs but as someone who used to get blackout drunk with people putting substances in my face, I know I wasn’t always the best at saying “No thanks!”. Maybe he was a better blackout drunk than I was.

                I think after seeing how different drugs have deteriorated people over the years my reaction is a bit dull to Zakk. I’ve got people in my family that were hardcore alcoholics and it left them a lot more fucked up than the condition Zakk is in. Then there’s a chick I dated in high school back in the 90’s, she sent me a friend request on FB last year and I thought it was her mom sending it to me. Chick was hooked on meth for 3 years and looks like she’s fuckin’ 53 years old while she’s actually 33. Too bad, too, she was such a beautiful girl back in the day.

                Or hell, just compare him to Ozzy or Keith Richards. In the grand scheme of things, Zakk’s not too bad off compared to some of his peers!

                But I see what you’re saying. The dude looks like he’s lived the life he’s lived. And he does look dried out, like literally.
