Best known for his legendary association with Ozzy Osbourne, Zakk Wylde is one of the most legendary names in the world of ‘heavy metal’. Starting his musical journey at a tender age, he created such music which has provided solace to listeners all around the globe. ‘Stone Henge’ was Zakk’s first band and only the beginning of what was to follow. Wylde had since associated himself with various local bands in New Jersey before landing his big break with Ozzy Osbourne. After a blazing debut and several record breaking hits, he left Ozzy to form his own band ‘Black Label Society’. However, he did return to Ozzy and has also appeared as a guest in several of his albums. He has also been a songwriter and producer. It has been a decade and ‘Black Label Society’ has inspired a number of rock bands and fans all over the world who are now popularly known as the ‘Berzekers’. The band spreads the mantra— ‘Strength, Determination, Merciless, Forever’, SDMF in short. Wylde has led the ‘Berzerkers’ to create a heavy metal band which has in every way stood firm to his beliefs and vision.
