Zakk Wylde quotes

Another Black Label motto. That's what I think life is. It's just another bridge to cross. You ask no questions. Whatever work it is you gotta do, you gotta go over it, under it, through it, around it, to do it.

Had an awesome time. You tell me to show up and all I have to do is drink beer, play guitar all day and I can lift weights and you're going to pay me for this!

Any guy that's not working with the same amount of intensity and passion that I do, I don't want to know.

You're never going to learn everything.

The way I look at it you can always get better.

You never toot your own horn.

You've got certain guys that just want to be famous and then you've got the real musicians that just love playing music.

We were sitting on the bus one day and there were 5 of us hanging out. There was only one beer left in the cooler and we actually all took a little cup and split it. It was a pathetic day in a rock and roll when five grown men have to be sitting there sharing a beer.

Another time I cracked two of the vertebrae in my back and broke a rib.

As much as I love heavy riffs, I like The Eagles, Neil Young, Elton John, Crowded House.

Because with Black Label and all the fans it's just one big family.

I screwed my knee up once because I fell off the stage.

I'm a good Catholic boy.

I'm just worried that there's enough beer on the bus. That's the top priority at all times.

I've messed myself up more playing music than when I played football.
