Zakk Wylde: There is nothing like the best musician
In a new interview with Music is winningof “Guitar Villains” Podcast, Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL COMPANY, OZZY OSBOURNE) dismissed the idea that some musicians can be better than all others, saying most of these polls are nothing more than popularity contests.
“When we say, ‘Who is the best guitarist? “or” Who’s the best drummer? “or” Who’s the best singer? “or” Who’s the best … “whatever, right? When that debate always comes up, [it] is kind of a strange thing, ”he said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). “Same King edward [Eddie Van Halen] always says, he says: “Music is not sport”. It’s not a powerlifting competition where you know who the strongest guy is because obviously his numbers are the highest. The one who has done the most benches, the one who has lifted the most, the one who has had the greatest number wins the competition. Or sport – a baseball game or a football game – there is a winner at the end of the game. But music isn’t who’s the best; that’s who your favorite is. It’s like pizza – what’s your favorite pizza? They are all good. They all slam. It’s just, like, ‘Do you just like it? Or do you like it with garlic and mushrooms? Do you like it with pepperoni? Do you like it with sausages? It’s just like saying, ‘What’s your favorite [LED] ZEPPELIN record?’ There is no favorite [record]; they are all good. They are all amazing, in fact. It’s like I’m running out “II” for a while so i listen ‘Presence’ now because I haven’t listened to this in a while. So, yeah, it’s really the truth – that’s what you prefer, or whatever your mood is for the day. “
Earlier this month, Wylde said in detroit WRIF radio station that BLACK LABEL COMPANY was recording the follow-up to “Grimmest Hits” album for a provisional release in November.
