Zakk Wylde Detained By Police Following Fight; Tonight's Black Label Society Show Cancelled

Patrick Orr of Boise's The Idaho Statesman has issued the following report:

Things got Wylde at The Big Easy this afternoon, and a concert scheduled for tonight got canceled soon after.

Boise Police were summoned to the concert club around 3 p.m. after getting a call about a possible fight. When they arrived, they found that considerable damage had been done inside The Big Easy. Witnesses said the damage was done by guitarist Zakk Wylde using a baseball bat, Boise police spokeswoman Lynn Hightower said.

Officers detained Wylde and another man, Charles Hurd, for about a half hour. Nobody involved wanted to press charges, so the case was dropped, police said.

Wylde, longtime guitarist for metal vocalist OZZY OSBOURNE, was scheduled to play at The Big Easy tonight with his band, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY. The gig was nixed shortly after the afternoon incident.

“The show was canceled due to illness,” Big Easy co-owner Paul Thornton said.

Thornton would not comment further.

Not really.....Wylde is known for his legendary tantrums and propensity for violence....not to mention booze. It's the "rockstar television out the windows, upside down hotel room" sh** is all.

Every picture i've seen of him has been holding one of three things.....

A. his guitar (75% of the time)
B. a beer or loaded shot glass (23% of the time)
C. a woman 'his wife or cristina scabbia of lacuna coil' (2% of the time)

Theres a fine line between truely brilliant people and insantty.....
Something very similar can be said for many of the artisticly gifted, if not the same thing......

OK He's a legendary Rock Star.So tantrums are part of the deal.I also agree with Remember metal.People who are genius level intelligence are crazy to varying degrees.Einstien would walk out of his house barefoot in the dead of winter.Asia Carrera is a member of mensa who happens to be a porn star who started in the buseness before Jenna and does not make 10% of what Jenna get's in a year.She has not even had the good sense to start a production or managemeant company yet and she started 5yrs before Jenna who's going on her 10th year as a high paide ho(15 million a year).The point I'm attempting to make is it's not surprising although if I were him I would cut this sh** out.Sooner or later he's gonna get started and somebody won't put up with it and sue the sh** out of him.Didn't Sharon and Ozzy try to force him into rehab at one point.

Aquateen Hunger force...I MAKE my friends watch it when I come over since I lack cable...The Mooninites are the best thing to EVER come out of that show. I don't tend to quote tv but I couldnt help quoting some of the things from those episodes. Classic sh**.

Thank God this forum isn't full of people just calling Zakk a poser. Yeah Zakk's great man.
One thing I would say or ask is RememberMetal? I am worried about you:
"very picture i've seen of him has been holding one of three things.....

A. his guitar (75% of the time)
B. a beer or loaded shot glass (23% of the time)
C. a woman 'his wife or cristina scabbia of lacuna coil' (2% of the time)"
Well.. errr. you didn't ACTUALLY work out all this... if you did... I think Zakk has a stalker on his case. LOL.

Heh. Nah, i suck at math and i only own two BLS albums. I'm no stalker, and only a so-so fan.

But he is unavoidable in music mags these days. Revolver, Rolling Stone, Terrorizer, etc....The closest I've come to stalking someone is sneaking up on my cat or dog when they know i'm trying to take them to the vet.

Nope, he's no stalker, he's right though, take all the magazines you got with a picture of Zakk in them and count. It really does look like this......

A. his guitar (75% of the time)
B. a beer or loaded shot glass (23% of the time)
C. a woman 'his wife or cristina scabbia of lacuna coil' (2% of the time)"

hehe just went through my magazines, it's pretty much dead on. though i would up the guitar % and knock down the alcohal one and then add a category for just him with nothing but a p***ed off face. Maybe obsessed is the word we're looking for, but he'd have to be living in California to be an effective stalker.

What does taking a baseball bat to the inside of a club have anything to do with having a temper or a propensity for violence. Look at the Pantera videos. They were just having fun destroying stuff. Whats wrong with that?
