I would LOVE to see Zack on this tour! I have seen a couple You Tube videos of him playing Sabbath songs with these guys, and they are AWESOME! Zack is such a gifted player, and he plays these songs with respect to Tony Iommi’s playing, but also throwing in his own style. Just Killer!
When I was young, a friend from high school in NJ was taking guitar lessons, and said that his teacher had another student who was extremely advanced and could play Al Di Meola note for note as a teen. He told me the students name was Jeff Wielandt. I never expected this.
Great story, T! I loved reading it. Thanks for sharing. :o)
Me too. I ❤️ Zakk.
The album cover is awesome!
I saw Zakk Sabbath last November open for Clutch. Should have been the other way around. Clutch is good but never got into them. I was completely drenched when Zakk’s set was finished.
Going to see Zakk Sabbath at the Hawthorne here in Portland. Small venue, so it should be loud and heavy. \mm/
