Guitarist Zakk Wylde confirmed that he will be joining Ozzy Osbourne in 2020 as part of the No More Tours 2 farewell tour.
Wylde has worked with Osbourne for the better part of two decades, though he did not contribute to Osbourne’s forthcoming album Ordinary Man. Instead, producer Andrew Watt handled the guitar work, along with some guest appearances with Slash, Duff McKagan from Guns N’ Roses, and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.
Wylde has also been focusing his attention on Zakk Sabbath, his group dedicated to the work of Black Sabbath. Originally conceived as a side project, the cover band has developed a strong following of its own. Earlier this year the group announced it will be recording its own version of Black Sabbath’s self-titled debut, in honor of the LP’s 50th anniversary.
