Legendary guitarist Zakk Wylde talked with Linea Rock about what he learned on the time he played with Ozzy Osbourne and he revealed that he discovered how to run a band with the madman.
“I really learned from Ozz. If Ozzy was a team owner or anything like that, he’d surround himself with great people and delegate the power.
“If Ozzy was president of the United States it would be like Ozzy’s not running the military and he’s not running the police department and he’s not running freeways and the roads – he delegates the power to people who know how to do that. Then you have advisers but you make the final decision. That’s how you run a business or you run a band or you run anything – you surround yourself with great people.
“Just like with Wylde Audio, doing the guitars, anything like that. Surround yourself with great people that know what they’re doing. I’m not building those guitars, I have people that are great guitar luthiers that are building them, but obviously I have a final say whether they’re done.”
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
