Ozzy Osbourne’s lead guitarist Zakk Wylde spoke in a recent interview with Musicians Institute and revealed his idea about the people selling his guitars – especially the first guitar they had.
Zakk also said that he strongly remembers the first guitar he ever owned.
As you all remember, In June, Mother Jones published a recent article about Pink Floyd legend David Gilmour and explained how David Gilmour spent the money he earned from the auction that he sold all of his guitars for $21.5 Million.
Here is what Zakk tells about his first guitar:
“Actually, I do have my very first Gibson. It was a Pelham Blue SG Firebrand, and it was, like, the first one I ever had. So pretty much the bulk of my countless hours of running scales were on that guitar – I have that one.
I always ask all my buddies that play guitar: ‘Oh my god, do you still have that piece of shit Fender copy or whatever you had back in the day because you were like a huge Robin Trower fan?’.
My buddy frank goes, like, ‘Dude, I ended up finding a guy who I sold it to, I ended up getting it back.’ Those are always great stories.”
“It doesn’t matter if the guitar is the biggest pile of garbage on the planet, it’s the fact that the connection that you have with that guitar… I’ve learned how to play ‘Smoke on the Water’ on this guitar. It has its life of its own.”
