Zakk Wylde Still Considered A Son By The Osbournes

(Gibson) It comes without saying that guitar icon Zakk Wylde is very tight with the Osbourne clan. In fact, Ozzy Osbourne's wife and manager, Sharon Osbourne, says the Osbournes are so fond of Wylde that he's "like our oldest son."

"When we first met Zakk, he was 18 years old," Sharon told Revolver TV at the debut Rock & Roll Roast earlier this year. "He was the most beautiful 18-year-old you've ever seen. He was just a fantastic kid. He is like our oldest son. That's what Zakk will always be. He's family."

Later, Sharon was asked why the Les Paul Bullseye player deserved to be honored as a "guitar god" by friendly contemporaries, such as Ozzy Osbourne, Chris Jericho, Anthrax's Scott Ian, Slipknot's Corey Taylor and more at the ceremony. "He's just got it," Sharon said. "He has that 'it' factor that makes you a star. You know, you can't define it, but he has this presence and he has this sound, as soon as he gets on that guitar, one note, you know who it is. And that's what makes guitar heroes you know, that distinctive sound. And he has this strength that so few players today have, and that presence. And he's nuts. [Laughs]" more on this story
