Zakk Wylde says that Pop always mastered the world of music

In a new interview with Songfacts, Zakk Wylde, guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne and founder of the Black Label Society, was asked about the future of rock charts and music awards around the world. “Even when Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin dominated the world, pop still dominated music,” he said.


“I think if you paid attention at the 1974 or 1973 Grammy, when those bands were at the top, no one mentioned them. Although Led Zeppelin was filling stadiums, with even larger audiences than the Beatles when they played at Tampa Stadium, he was not at the Grammys. They probably did not even get a referral, “he continued.

In Wylde’s view, rock lives in a world separate from awards and stops. “It’s what rock and roll always was and always will be.”

The tenth and most recent Black Label Society studio album, Grimmest Hits, was released on 19 January by Spinefarm Records. Currently, a band is traveling through North America with an LP release tour, which has Corrosion of Compliance participation on all dates, and Eyehategod and Red Fang in selected shows.

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
