Zakk Wylde’s Biography


He started playing the guitar when he was only eight years old, but after a while he abandoned it due to lack of interest. He studied at Jackson Memorial High School, where at age 14 he resumed his love of the guitar. He began taking classes with the son of his high school football coach, and later studied classical guitar. At this time he formed his first group, Stone Henge, where he began to play versions of Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath. After graduating in 1985 he started working in a supermarket and became part of a group called Zyris. It was then that he began to call himself Zakari Wyland, the name he took from the TV series Lost in Space.

Zyris played versions of their favorite bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, also some of their own material, but they did not seem to have much future outside of New Jersey. Then, Zakk heard on Howard Stern’s radio show that Ozzy Osbourne was looking for a new guitarist to replace Jake E. Lee and that he was auditioning. During a Zyris concert, two famous rock photographers, Mark Weiss and Dave Feld, impressed by Zakk’s playing style, offered him a session and encouraged him to audition with Ozzy. Zakk, who worked at a gas station and had nothing to lose, decided to attend the audition, where he played some Ozzy songs and some acoustic material. Shortly after he received a call from Sharon Osbourne, wife and manager of Osbourne, asking if he wanted to join the band. Without hesitation, he accepted the offer.
