As previously reported, two Black Label Society shows in Montreal (Jan. 8) and Toronto (Jan. 9) were already canceled due to a “severe illness,” and it has now been announced that two other shows will not be performed either: January 10 in Grand Rapids and the 12th in Oklahoma. New dates will be announced shortly.
The Black Label Society is promoting their new album, “Grimmest Hits,” which will be released on January 19th by Entertainment One.
Zakk Wylde says that following Ozzy in drunkenness led him to alcoholism
In an interview with Jenny McCarthy’s show on SiriusXM Zakk Wylde commented on how his alcohol problems started.
Read what he said:
“I was 19 years old. That’s when my drinking problems started. I drank already and the thing increased from then on. When I started playing with Ozzy, Sharon Osbourne became worried and went to talk to Barbaranne” [Zakk’s wife].
“I was the only person accompanying Ozzy because everyone was afraid to get stuck in that web, they were afraid to support him and feel guilty later. But I always go out with him. How could anyone deny going out with Ozzy? They let me know that I was an amateur and that I had no idea where I was getting myself.”
