ZAKK WYLDE On Chance Of New OZZY OSBOURNE Album - "That Would Be Up To The Boss"
June 29, 2018, 4 years ago
In a brand new interview, Zakk Wylde comments on the possibility of a new album from Ozzy Osbourne, saying, "That would be up to the boss". Zakk made his comments while speaking to eonmusic, at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, which were held in London on June 11th.
On hand to present Ozzy with the Golden God award, the guitarist was in jovial form, having just played a headline set at Download Festival the previous evening.
Speaking about being back on stage with Ozzy, after an absence of a number of years, Wylde said; "It’s all good, it’s great; I enjoy every second of it."
Going on to talk about the setlist, which focuses heavily on 1991 release No More Tears, Zakk commented; "With the setlist, I mean, that’s where we are right now, because obviously we’re going to be out for a while, so I’m sure it’ll change, it’ll mutate into other things."
When asked about the possibility of a new album from Ozzy, Zakk said that he was ready, should the Black Sabbath front man want to enter the studio. Said Wylde, "That would be up to the boss. If he’s just like; 'Zakk, have you got any riffs laying around?', it’s just like; 'Yeah'; like it’s pretty much that easy. That’s how we’ve always done it in the past. It’s not rocket science, we’re not making Mahavishnu Orchestra records here, you know what I mean?"
