In a brand new interview with Australia’s Heavy magazine, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY mainman Zakk Wylde credited BLACK SABBATH singer Ozzy Osbourne for making it possible for Wylde to have a successful career in the music industry.
“Without Ozzy, I wouldn’t be talking here with you right now,” Wylde said. “I’ve always loved Ozzy. He’s always been one of the coolest guys and he’s like an older brother and it’s truly a blessing. I still talk to Ozzy, ’cause he’s family to me. Just because BLACK LABEL is full time, it doesn’t really matter. Because if [current OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist] Gus G.‘s wife was having a baby and Ozzy wanted me to fill in, I’d do it.”
He continued: “The thing is, with Ozzy, he introduces you to the world, and whatever you want to do is up to you. What are you gonna do? We all gotta have jobs and pay bills. Ozzy offered me an opportunity and introduced me to the world, and you just gotta role your sleeves up and get to work instead of sitting on the couch, talking about how you’re gonna be bigger than McDonalds.”
