La primera banda de Zakk Wylde se llamaba Stone Henge, y en ella, curiosamente se hacían versiones de Ozzy y de Black Sabbath (como un presentimiento), además de Led Zeppelin y otros. A los 18 años pasó a formar parte de la banda Zyris, a la vez que trabajaba en un supermercado. Un tiempo más tarde, cuando Zakk trabajaba en una gasolinera y seguía en la misma banda, se decidió a ir a una audición para ser guitarrista de Ozzy. Zakk gusto a los Obournes y se convirtió inmediatamente en el relevo de Jake E. Lee, que a su vez sustituia al gran Randy Rhoads. Fueron años de éxito y giras, que terminaron cuando Ozzy decidió prescindir de sus servicios. Zakk tenia muchos proyectos y de hecho tocaba de vez en cuando con guns N’ Roses con los que incluso se planteo ser guitarrista lider. Con su banda Black Label Society tuvo éxito especialmente en Sudamérica. Zakk Wylde's first band was called Stone Henge, and they usually played Ozzy's, and Black Sabbath's covers (as a foreboding) among many other bands like Led Zeppelin. When he was 18 years old he started to play with the band Zyris, sharing time with his job at a mall. Not much later, when he stil played in the band Zyris and worked then on a gas station, Zakk decided to apply for being the next Ozzy's guitar player. The osbournes liked Zakk and he inmediatily became parte of the band replacing Jake E, Lee, the man who as well replaced the great Randy Rhoads. Those where years of succes and tours, and enden when Ozzy decided to dissmis Zakk. Zakk Wylde had a lot of projects, on fact he had allready played with Guns N' Roses and bethought about being their guitarist replacing Slash. With his band Black Label society he had succes especially in south America.
