Ozzy Osbourne

In the late 1980s, Wylde replaced Jake E. Lee as the lead guitarist for singer Ozzy Osbourne. He soon became known for his signature black-and-white, bull's-eye-painted Gibson Les Paul Custom guitars. Wylde's first album with Osbourne was 1988's "No Rest for the Wicked." After that, he appeared on the 1990 live album "Just Say Ozzy," the 1991 studio album "No More Tears," and the 1993 live album "Live & Loud." Following 1995's "Ozzmosis," Wylde was replaced as Osbourne's lead guitarist by Joe Holmes. He returned in 2001 on the album "Down to Earth," and the year after that was on the live album "Live at Budokan." Since then, Wylde has appeared on Osbourne's albums "Black Rain" and "Patient Number 9." He also joined the Ozzy and Friends Tour in 2012, and joined Obsourne's band for select dates of Osbourne's 2017 summer tour.

Pride & Glory

During Ozzy Osbourne's 1991 tour, Wylde formed the side project Pride & Glory with White Lion members James LoMenzo and Greg D'Angelo. The band released a self-titled album in 1994 before disbanding.

Other Projects

Since 2014, Wylde has led a Black Sabbath cover band called Zakk Sabbath. Other members of the group include Rob Nicholson and Joey Castillo. Starting in the summer of 2022, Wylde joined the reunited heavy metal band Pantera as a fill-in guitarist for the late Dimebag Darrell.
