Zakk Wylde Has Strong Reaction to Tim Lambesis Murder For Hire Arrest
Wylde was asked about the arrest and if he has ever played with Lambesis in a recent interview with Under the Gun Review and had this to say, "Yeah, we did gigs with those guys out on Ozzfest.
"That's just a massive, massive mess over there. It's just like any of our friends, if any of our buddies were gonna do something like that, we'd be like, 'What are you talking about man?!' I get it if he's pissed off saying, 'I swear to God I want to rip her f**king head off,' but that's okay, you can dump your feelings out, go to the bar and get tanked and spill your guts, but you're not f**king killing anyone dude. Let's just chock it up as a loss.
''See what happened to OJ, so why would you want to go there? She's gonna get the f**king house, she's gonna take half the money. Now, me and Derek, as your managers [Nice, now I'm working with Zakk!], we're gonna be booking As I Lay Dying till the f**king cow comes home. The band is doing great, you're gonna be fine and you just keep moving forward. Think about it, one f**king dumb decision like that, and his life is over dude.
"And the band was doing really well; he had everything to be thankful for. Everything was kicking ass. Yeah this was a hiccup, it's a road bump, I get it. I understand him being pissed, but you're not killing anyone. You can't go there. Just like a manager says, 'you can't be knocking people out in bars.' That's why you have security guards. It's dumb, dumb, stupid sh*t. What a waste.
"Even if he wasn't in a band, if he just worked at a construction job, I understand him talking about it. It's fine and dandy — you can say that all day long but you're not getting a f**king gun and blowing her brains out. I understand him getting it out of his system, but like I said, once we get back out of that bar, we move forward. That's the only way to do it, you've got to move forward."
