Biography

Jeffery Phillip Wiedlandt (Born January 14, 1967 in Bayonne, New Jersey), better known as Zakk Wylde, was the lead guitarist in Ozzy Osbourne’s band and has also found success playing lead guitar in his own band, Black Label Society, who have been a part of the Ozzfest tour many times, having guitarist Nick Catanese on the rhythm section.

Zakk has been voted “Most Valuable Player” for three successive years in the “Guitar World” (US) magazine polls. In 2005, he was also voted “Best Metal Guitarist”, “Number 1 Shredder” and received the “Metal Hammer” (UK magazine) “Riff Lord” and “Golden God” awards.

Wylde has done numerous “guest” appearances on many albums, such as the debut album for Damageplan as guest vocalist, as well as Derek Sherinian’s album “Black Utopia” alongside Yngwie Malmsteen, among others.

Zakk’s film credits include Rock Star (As “Ghode”, guitarist of the ficticious band Steel Dragon) and the concert DVD Boozed, Broozed, and Broken-Boned (Certified Platinum), recorded at Harpo’s in Detroit, MI. It was the first time in the concert hall’s history that all of the alcohol had been consumed on one night (Zakk’s favorite beer is Sierra Nevada Pale Ale). He has also done a comedy skit show alongside Jim Breuer, titled “Crapshoot”, which is now available on DVD.

Wylde has also appeared as a guest star on the TV show Aqua Teen Hunger Force. He is a New York Yankees and New York Giants fan. He also performed the National Anthem on the electric guitar during a New York Rangers game in October 2005.
