Zakk Wylde

Found on


Zakk Wylde is an American musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and occasional actor who is best known as the former guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, and founder of the heavy metal band Black Label Society.


Zakk Wylde is the best guitarist of all time nobody is even on the same level as him when it comes to rocking and the only two who were (Dimebag Darrel and Randy Rhodes) are dead so therefore Zakk is the best and should be number one.

Zakk Wylde is Randy Rhode's Prodigy, Jimmy is and will always be a great guitarist, but Dimebag and Zakk should both be higher ranked then they are, and to say otherwise, you need to re-listen to their music...

I remember watching Zakk Wylde playing acoustic guitar for the first time. I was impressed so much... I've never seen anyone playing like this... In my opinion he should certainly be on the top.

Dave Mustaine is NOT better then one of Ozzy's guitarist. He's not even better then the other guitarist in his band. This list is a joke. Jimi Hendrix is NOT the number one guitarist. Zakk is the king in my opinion - Sabbath

No more tears guys this guy should be #18 at least! Zakk wylde has been in 2 of the most biggest and baddest bands in rock/metal history which is ozzy osbourne and the black label society!

Zakk Wylde's fingers can dance swiftly on the guitar producing a thrilling music which no other players ever can. The effects that he plays are marvelous.

I seriously don't understand why, people think that kurt cobain is a better Guitarist than zakk wylde. I mean, I have never heard anything like that.

Zakk Wylde is the best..

Why is Dimebag Darrell, Zakk Wylde and Buckethead so low. If we're going by skill on the guitar alone those three are at the top. But when it comes to other instruments Zakk Wylde is miles ahead of Dimebag and Buckethead.

For one, this is one of the few best that are alive. He is a member of Ozzy Osbourne and the creator of Black Label Society. Also a friend of the late Dimebag Darrell. - gormanilius

Gets an awesome sound from his playing, no matter what the style. Very underrated due to his not being mainstream or fashionable. Pity, cause being so damn talented should be enough.

When Zakk Wylde picks up the guitar, he is a god... No doubt about it, his fingers just touch the frets like magic!

I'm my opinion Zakk is the best guitarist alive right now. He definitely deserves to be in the top 10.

It's a joke a man such as Zakk Wylde should be as low down the lost hands down better than bucket head who rated higher some times polls such as this got for easy options that people would know. Listen to Zakk educate yourselfs on all the people on this list and tell me he should be at number 29

Zakk created and revolutionized a whole other style of playing. The most versatile player out there! Being at #55 is a joke, should be in the top 10!

He's definitely a great guitarist. Out of his heavy stuff and his mellow stuff, I'm not sure which I like more, 'cause I love them both so much. - Feirceraven

Wow. Wylde is no doubt a top 10 guitarist. His killer solos and huge riffs are amazing, but he also kills it on acoustic guitar. He should be way higher on the list.

Wait a minute. Zakk Wylde is down at 25? He honestly deserves more credit and also, WHO THE HELL IS TOM KAULITZ!?

This guy is a metal god. Not even a single flaw when playing ultimate solos. Guitar is a like a toy to him.

Zakk is the best I've seen in the last ten years you guys should up date with guys that are still alive

Zakk Wylde is one of my favorite guitarists, Hands down. I think I'm more of a Zakk Wylde fan that Randy Rhoads actually... I remember watching Zakk in a video playing a solo and his hand started bleeding in the middle of the solo! I thought that was so cool, he kept playing too. m/

He's the best hands down nobody can play like him, he play any Hendrix song like it's nothing

Wylde rocks. Incredible talent, feeling, and its true he is a great singer. Listen to "the last goodbye". Crazy stage presence! Should be top 10!

Zakk can play anything, thus making him the best guitarist of all time in my book.

He is better than anyone on the list. He can rock out on electric but seeing him on acoustic is great. Lets see buckethead do that
