One of my friends let me borrow the Zakk Wylde DVD and I was watching it... and he kept saying "**** Limp Bizkit"... which I sort of was annoying, not that I really care for Limp Bizkit, but still, a show where you constantly curse another band for no reason, sort of annoying, but whatever.....

Then he starts this whole rant about Iraq, saying "This goes out to the troops, get those mother****ers for what they did to this country".... Okay.... then he comes out with "**** Iraq".... Yeah, I just lost all respect for this person as a person. I never liked his music, but his skill is respectable on guitar.... still.. thought I'd share his ignorance with you guys.... see what you guys think.

To be honest, just listening to him rant about most things gives this impression.
#3
Its not stupidity, its opinion. He probobly thinks your stupid too.

No, seriously. It's stupidity. You can offer your opinion without coming off as a complete asshole. He failed.
#5
He bores me to tears. Got a vid of him and he keeps on saying "Now I'm moving between the 5 blues minor scales" over and over again, when he should be saying Modes instead, and playing something a bit less obvious/boring.

Not a fan, very good guitarist but totally overrated and a hick in my opinion.

So his tact may be questionable. But he's different and is willing to speak out(even though he probably forgot to think before he said it). I think that's what draws people in. Difference.

When someone says "**** Iraq" it has nothing to do with tact, its simply pure ignorance.
#8
If he wants to speak out, that's fine (not that it makes him unique, I'm sick of hearing people bitch about Iraq)...but he should really save it for something besides an instructional video, don't you think?

A lot of pros do that: if they play a wrong note, they'll hit it again to make it look as if it's intentional. It's called "jazz", aparently.

He's actually a very down to earth person, if you meet him 1 on 1. He's one of the nicest celebrities and a very, very good guitarist. Not just his metal but at the BLS concert he did about 30 mins of just him and his acoustic. It was great.

I'm not saying he doesn't have the right to say it, I'm just saying he's ignorant.
#11
Exactly. If John Petrucci (who is apparently a devout catholic) went on saying "Jesus loves you, and I really think you should all become Catholic" on a damn instructional video then everyone will be flaming him and throwing bricks for trying to brainwash ppl.

It's the same thing here with Zakk Wyle. IT has nothing to do with Iraq or the Middle east or war, a kid is sitting on his bed watching you in hopes of learning something on the GUITAR , not to be given a sermon.

yeah, blaming Iraq for 'what they did' to the US may be an opinion but it is also just incorrect.

Go read the interview from GW this August. Seriously, he comes of as much more of a good guy. Remember that this show was during the period when nu-metal was extremley popular, and "normal" metal was almost looked down at by them. Looking back at it now, sure it was idiotic but still.

I'm sure he's genuine, but apparently also completely uninformed and ignorant about anything outside the US borders

To say f*ck a whole country for doing nothing.... yeah.. and on top of that blaiming them for doing anything to us when they didn't.. that's ignorance to me.

Either way, I have no problem with it, I have just lost all respect for the guy. Besides all that, constanltly saying f*ck Limp Bizkit.... that's also pretty annoying after a while.

Fine, he may not like Nu-Metal, but a lot of people do and some people like Limp Bizkit... why talk bad on a person for liking what a person likes and band minding their own business and making their own money? Just doesn't make sense to me...

I like metal, not a lot of people around me like it, but I don't care, I just like it for myself, for me to enjoy and they can like whatever they want.

well, if Eminem doesn't like Limp Bizkit, then i don't like Limp Bizkit. And if Zakk Wylde doesn't like Limp Bizkit, that means he rolls with me

You just summed up about 50 % of Americans I've encountered. Sorry to say it, but he's generally more of a down to earth guy than most American celebrities anyways.

I know

**** Lim Bizkit, I mean **** those little pussy bitches *Pinch harmonic* They aren't ****ing **** *Pinch harmonic*



But seriously, he is a very funny person, I'd recommend to read the GW interview.

Never liked him anyway, he's a complete moron.


And I'd rather listen to Limp Bizkit than Black Label Society. Limp Bizkit at least made people laugh.

Umm..

I'm pretty sure Zakk knows that anyone who is listening to his music agrees with him about Limp Bizkit. I see nothing wrong with what he said about them. If I had an instructional video, I'd make fun of everyone.

As for what he said about Iraq..

You know.. You don't have to watch the DVD..

That's like going to a KKK rally and getting pissed off because they're saying the N word.

Or maybe it's more like buying an instructional DVD and getting a bigoted sermon If he wants to talk crap, fine, but on an instructional DVD?

Actually, I don't care.

First, he was probably drunk. Second, that means he came off as an asshole. Where does that make him stupid? It's his opinion and he has a major ego problem- not to mention drinking problem.

It's Zakk Wylde. I wouldn't buy a Zakk Wylde dvd simply because I know how the man acts.

Secondly, I wouldn't hear you complaining if you got the new John 5 dvd, where he's got naked women randomly.

I'm not even sure who John 5 is If I want naked women I'd go for different DVDs.

And I was just looking for an argument, any argument. That's what the internet's for

John 5 is a guitar player. He's got a new instructional DVD in which he has naked women randomly because he wants to give the guitarist something different, so it's not just so and so amount of guitar playing without a mental break.

All I'm saying is, the TS is just pissed off because Zakk said something that he doesn't agree with, it has nothing to do with the fact that he went to learn about guitars and a few seconds out of the thing, something else was brought up.

And I'm also saying, it's Zakk Wylde. You'd have to be a moron to not expect something like that. I know, let's all complain because he took a few minutes out of a concert to drink a beer, too.. Because that's wrong. I paid to see him play, not drink.. And who ever heard of Zakk drinking on stage?

Yeah, I guess you're right. I probably shouldn't have tried to argue without ever having seen the DVD

Nah, it's possible. I'm doing it. I've never seen it. I'm just saying, it's a stupid thing to bitch about it.

And the John 5 dvd isn't out yet. But it's going to be rated R.

Maybe someone took his beer away.


I can't really stand his music now after 2 tracks. I'm sure alot of people talk rubbish on stage especially a person of his type who has to keep his image because people see him as a really strong, heavy guitarist.

That's how my mom says it. That woman is so blatantly racist for a woman who ****s a Mexican man on a regular basis.. I don't think she knows Sanchez is a non-white name..

She's always going on about Farners. It cracks me up.

As for Zakk.. You'd think he'd want to distance himself from that kind of attitude. Wasn't the dude who killed Dime a former marine or some such ****?
