Yeah I saw that a long time ago (duh, it's me), it's amazing how good he was at such a young age.
You have to remember that he started playing guitar at the age of 15, which means that when this was recorded he had been playing for about 2-3 years. I really think he sold his soul.

Most of his career he was beardless, look up anything before 2002!

And I noticed that his live and loud solo sounded just like this, anyone else think he just gave up learning after the 2nd year or something?

Zakk was beardless and pretty clean cut until he adopted the fake biker image.

Actually, when Ozzy first picked him up, he was the average, skinny, fruity-looking dude with the huge 80s hairspray do that rivalled any hair band out there. He looked better suited to having a large dick in his hands (someone else's) than a guitar. I guess he had to overcompensate once he got 'big'. IMO, his gutiar skills aside, the guy is as much of a poseur as he ever was. The whole BLS mantra, biker image, etc is just a big act.

First of all, Zakk was never a skinny dude. He was always muscular. You're right that now he's a total poseur, but he used to be awesome and very stylish in the early 90's when he was in his "southern rock" phase. Even though I consider myself a hardcore Zakk fan, his current image pisses the hell out of me (Not to mention some of his music). When I compare his work now to his earlier work, I just don't see where things went wrong.

Well, skinny is relative to his beer-gut biker look of today. He was slim and fit back in the day. As for the look, he was adopting that whole hair metal look in the late 80s as it was going out of style... At least he looked 'normal' in the early 90s.

But I stand by my poseur thing. You either live the lifestyle, or you don't. And he doesn't. The fake biker thing may make him look badass on stage and so many fans think it's all geniune (man, the fights that went down on the BLS boards about that lol). But it's fake. He doesn't ride, and doesn't live the biker lifestyle. Shit, even in his video (damn, the song name eludes me now), he didn't even ride the bike. That was the dude who owned 357 Customs that got made up to lok like Zakk....

And I too am a big fan of his playing, but it ends there. I don't care much for BLS, and don't care for anything Ozzy did since the early 90s.

Let's put it this way: No More Tears, Book Of Shadows and Pride & Glory are the only albums that I can say I love from beginning to end.

Well from your gear I can see your a fanboy so just ignore any opinions you don't like. If dull extended wankery with no purpose or actual song to link it together is your thing, then good for you.
#21
First of all, I'm not a fanboy, just a regular fan.
Second of all, I just find it pointless to enter threads, leave some small opinion that nobody really asked for and leave. If you've got nothing constructive to say, keep it to yourself.
Now, please, stop talking about this cause it's not going to lead anywhere.

Well, I'd hardly consider Pleiadian a 'fan-boy' just by what he's written in this thread so far. I mean, what fan boy do you know rags on his "god's" appearance, fake image, his main band, and anything he's done with Ozzy in the last decade? That would be enough to get him disowned and labelled 'unworthy' over on the BLS boards.

There's nothing wrong with getting particular gear if you like someone's sound. It doesn't make one a fan boy. Now, if Pleiadian were to come out on stage with all Zakk's signature gear (including one of those "Slammin'" Marshall MGs), and all dressed up in BLS colors, then I could probably agree....

Am i the only one who isn't really fond about ...Zakk's playing? Sure it's fast and nice technique ... but it's not guitar work i really enjoy listening... also alot of dime's shredding isn't exactly always music to my ears ( though i like quite a number of Pantera/Damage plan songs) but just ....when i see videos of him shred , i don't know ... it doesn't really sound very neatto me ...bit boring after some videos. (man this is gonna get me flamed hard....)

But anyways back on topic , ghehe , the dude does look totally different. btw... (zakk still hasn't purchased a motorbike with the money he's earned by now? :P) Good playing though..... I can't do that , neither can I shred like dime :p
#25
I can appreciate someone's skill on guitar without necessarily liking the music they write. And that's how I feel about pretty much everything Zakk Wylde has done in the past 13 years or so. I can't stand listening to 98% of BLS songs, and can't stomach the dog puke excuse for music that Ozzy's been flogging for about that long too...

I don't think many people honestly enjoy a solo like that all the time, I mean to see it is cool but you can't just hear it on MP3 and really enjoy it. Like I've said several times in this forum, if you want to judge Zakk's playing and musical abilities listen to some of his older stuff, some of the real songs that he's written (Book Of Shadows & Pride & Glory albums), not the crap that he puts out with BLS today.

It was actually closer to 16 hours. Amazing stuff, to be playing guitar for 3-4 years and get picked up by one of the biggest metal people. Lucky bastard.

zakk wylde looks better with a beard... he looked g@y without one (yes, i know thats while he was in high school, im also talking about up until he grew a beard).
#35
while watching the video, youll also notice to the right of the page, there are other videos of zakk wylde. theres a 9 minute instructional video on "pentatonic speedballer". i think its funny how after every cut away during the video, u then see zakk wylde grabbing his beer. it cuts away id say maybe 15-20 times and he is grabbing for his beer each time. thats pretty sad, ha.

He plays pentatonics fast, great? Check out the early Shawn Lane vids when he was playing with Black Oak Arkansas from the age of 15. Now that's pure talent.

come on now, u cant discount zakk wylde's playing abilities. hes a bada$$. i dont like his music at all, but i respect his talent. also, u should watch the whole video, he starts playing with his teeth. thats insane for a high school kid thats only been playing for 2-3 years.

Um, I'm pretty sure Zakk is just about as much of a biker as a biker can get, and doesn't everyone at some point decide that they're going to be a biker, you arent born riding a damn motorcycle. Zakk has a bike, rides it, and drinks lots of booze. Thats what bikers do, ride and drink. Hes also big about his family, and is generally kind hearted, all the bikers ive ever met(and played lots of shows for) are the exact same way. Tough appearance, kind hearted, nice, caring individuals backed by great family and friends. Bikers arent just tough, mean dudes, theyre exactly the opposite of that. But dont get me wrong, these people kick ass when its nessesary. And drink booze. Lots of booze. Fun people.

As for his playing, I'm personally a big fan. Hes got one of the most distinctive vibratos in music, he's got his own thing going with the pinch harmonics, he's fast as hell, his tone's raunchy but great at the same time. He writes some seriously thunderous catchy riffs, I'm telling you people, before you make any opinions of Zakk, watch the dvds that he's in. Amazing playing. And he wrote No More Tears, honestly that may be the single best guitar solo I've ever hear.

Playing more paintball and reading more books than playing guitar lately.
