Guitarist Zakk Wylde is a father once again, as his wife Barbaranne gave birth to their fourth child on Wednesday night. Sabbath Page Wielandt Wylde was born at 11:40PM, weighing 8-pounds, 1-ounce and measuring 21 inches long.
For 50 years many of the world’s best rock guitarists have chosen to use Marshall amplifiers, and on Sept. 22 they’ll celebrate their love for this equipment. Joe Satriani, Zakk Wylde and members of Iron Maiden and Whitesnake are on the bill for the 50 Years of Loud concert at London’s Wembley Arena.
Axl Rose and Guns N’ Roses continue to surprise fans with unexpected additions to the set lists of their American tour. Last week in Indianapolis, Black Label Society‘s Zakk Wylde joined the band to perform a pretty heavy version of AC/DC‘s ‘Whole Lotta Rosie.’
Loud and heavy music defines Zakk Wylde. He works out to Ministry, loves Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, and was Ozzy Osbourne‘s longtime guitarist. He also serves as the leader of Black Label Society.
But during those long stretches of travel while on tour, Wylde likes to dial it down and listen to mellower tunes by some notable old-school artists.
