Rolling Stone says Ozzy Osbourne has decided to part ways with longtime guitarist/giant scary Viking Zakk Wylde.

 

Two words Zakk: Join me.

Seriously. Me and my band – which is really only a band once every couple months if people’s wives don’t mind and their kids don’t have whopping cough – could use a guitarist who drinks beer by the case (I’ve heard insider’s stories and its true – Zakk Wylde drinks beer like you breathe air). Having Zakk around would be great, as guys would be afraid of not showing up for rehearsal.

 

Plus he’s an incredible guitarist: one of the few around anymore whose sound is immediately identifiable: thick, nasty, and frightening. But we’ve heard this out of Ozzy before – he’s tried replacing him a couple times, but it just hasn’t worked. I have a feeling guitarists are afraid to work with Ozzy for fear Zakk will come back, feel like he’s being cheated on, and kick their ass.
