Zakk Wylde Does Not Appear on Ozzy Osbourne's New Solo Album

October 24, 2019

Ozzy Osbourne and Zakk Wylde are like chocolate and peanut butter. By themselves they're great, and when they come together they're fantastic. Wylde first joined Ozzy's band in the late '80s into the mid '90s, only to return again in the 2000's. He has played a key role in Osbourne's No More Tours 2 farewell tour and played on five of his albums, including his 2007 album Black Rain.

But during an interview on the Cassius Morris Show, Wylde reveals that he is not featured on Osbourne's latest upcoming solo album. “We didn’t do anything on that," says Wylde. "Ozz, he just jammed with some friends that he knows. He was just, like, ‘Hey, Zakk, I ended up tracking some of the stuff,’ or whatever, and I was, like, ‘Oh, great, Ozz.'”

Wylde later offered his praise for Ozzy's collaboration with Post Malone, and how he apperciates the rapper/singer for being a huge supporter of rock in the mainstream. “That Post Malone thing I heard was awesome. Post came down to a Black Label [Society] show … almost half a year ago or something like that, before the Ozzy thing. But he just came down and he was, like, ‘Hey, Zakk, what’s happening?’ A really cool guy and everything like that. When I heard the track, Ozzy sounds great on it, man.”

While many fans were expecting Wylde to appear on the new album, he says that there's still a chance the two will record more music together again. “The whole thing is we could always get together and record another thing,” says Wylde. “So it’s all good, man.”
