Zakk Wylde is one of the great guitarist known world wide. He is the former guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne and everybody know his bulls-eye-painted Gibson Les Paul custom guitar. Equipped with EMG hum bucking pickups and raw, unfinished maple necks, this guitar is one of best Gibson series ever made. the guitar suits to his character, a distinctive lead guitarist who has amazing solo outings, scorching riffs and remarkable stage performances. He also known as the founder of the Black Label Society.
what really excited me is when he appeared on 2011 American Idol, he was the guitarist for James Durbin’s performance of “Heavy Metal” by Sammy Hagar. it was a great performance and I’m sure that America and the world wide saw one of the best about heavy metal. it was the time which everyone think that heavy metal will still rule for the next decades. it never goes off. there in the video you can see his infamous bulls-eye gear and his hilarious stage presence.
did you know?
once he lost his 1981 Gibson Les Paul Custom “The Grail”. Zakk Wylde lost the guitar after it fell from the back of a truck transporting equipment as he was traveling between gigs in Texas. somehow he got it back by trading it with a black double-neck Gibson.
then i read the latest news and found out that he lost his gear, again. this time is his one of two aged Pelham Blue Les Paul signature guitar with bulls eye pattern. A $10,000 worth guitar was stolen from his tour bus Friday night(March 14, 2014) outside The Chicago Theater while he was on the Experience Hendrix Tour.
as you can see on his twitter @ZakkWyldeBLS :
