High Voltage Exclusive: Zakk Wylde Goes To AA
Zakk Wylde has told Classic Rock that he actually went to one Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, after being told to give up booze.
The Black Label Society mainman had to stop drinking after being put on medication to get rid of three blood clots in his leg.
“Someone suggested that I could benefit from going to AA, so I thought I’d give it a try.
“I went along to a meeting, didn’t say a word and listened to all of these fuckers bitching, moaning and whining. There was this one guy who went on and on about how God hadn’t helped him. As someone brought up a Catholic, I wanted to get up and tell him, ‘God’s got a lot more to sort that your shit’, then smack him in the jaw!
“I didn’t go back a second time, because I have far too much to do to waste my time like that.”
Black Label Society headline the Metal Hammer stage at High Voltage on July 24.
