LAZARUS A.D. – Issues Band Update

Lazarus AD

Bassist/vocalist Jeff Paulick of American thrashers LAZARUS A.D. has issued an update:

“What the fuck is up! Just issuing a little update here; we have been home for about a month now since our last tour with Bison and Woe of Tyrants. The tour was great, especially Canada, but it ended slightly short with Dan breaking his hand. But, we will have you know, the hand is fine and has about 2 weeks left to heal and things will be better than ever. He has still been playing guitar as much as possible and actually has been practicing his finger picking techniques as thats about all he can do with his right hand right now haha! Nonetheless, Alex and I have been hard at work writing new material as well and we will resume writing in a couple weeks as a band...

Zakk Wylde’s Wife: “We Go Back To The Doctors Today. He’s Hurting.”


Legendary guitar madman Zakk Wylde has had a rough past couple of months. First, he found out through the press that he no longer had a gig with OZZY. Next, he found himself in a literal life and death battle, being forced to cancel touring with his other band BLACK LABEL SOCIETY on “The Pedal To The Metal Tour”, due to a recent diagnosis of “blood clots in both lungs”.

He is currently listed in stable condition during what is expected to be a very slow recovery.

Today, Zakk’s wife Barbaranne has tweeted this new update:

“We Go Back To The Doctors Today. He’s Hurting.”

TMD will keep everyone updated on the continuing story of Zakk Wylde’s health crisis. We
ask that every Den Head reader keep him in their prayers. We’re rooting for you, bearded one!
