“I want to break Axl Rose’s Chinese Democracyrecord. It took him what, 14 years? I plan on going away for 20 years,” Wylde said in an interview withThe Toronto Sun. “That’s because I went away for four years and won a Golden God award. So I figure if I go away for 20 years, I’ll win a Nobel Peace Prize. The sad part is, I spend the majority of my nights thinking about this stuff. That’s pathetic.”
“When I do interviews, people want me to say something bad about [Ozzy],” he said. “But without him, there’d be no Zakk Wylde. There’d be no Black Label. I wouldn’t have my own brand of coffee and hot sauces and beef jerky. There wouldn’t be any Doom Crew pubs, which is this new sports-bar venture I’m working on. I wouldn’t be starting my own record label. I wouldn’t be writing the Black Label Guitar Bible or this coffee table book I’m writing or the movie script I’m working on. I wouldn’t have my Black Label Bunker or my studio. I wouldn’t have any of that without him. So yeah, I really hate the guy [laughs].”
A fra vent'anni, dunque. E viva Ozzy!
