I know I made a joke last week about Zakk Wylde playing the sad ex-girlfriend, but now I’m starting to feel bad. In an interview conducted last night with Carl Sundberg from Eugene, Oregon’s KFLY radio, Zakk just rambles for nearly three minutes and completely contradicts his “everything is cool with the boss” mantra:
I’ve gotta be honest with you. The boss hasn’t even given me a phone call, so I mean… I’m just like… I don’t know what’s going on over there. Are we doing this thing or are we not doing it? When I keep getting asked these questions, I go, ‘Call the boss. When he tells you, then he can call me back.’ I mean, it’s just like… I love you, man. Whatever you want, that’s cool.
But if we’re doing this, let’s do it, and let’s whoop some ass. But if you don’t wanna do it, then just give me a heads-up. Call me, man. Tell me what the hell’s going on. I don’t know what the hell’s going on over there. We’re working on the new record, we’ll be back in September, we’ll work on finishing the record. And then we’re supposed to do the tour.
I mean, it’s like, dude, you don’t wanna play with me anymore? Fine. Play with whoever the hell you wanna play with. I couldn’t give a rat’s ass. Like I’m gonna get all jealous or whatever.
I don’t even want to make a joke anymore. Poor guy. I’m sending him my tear-soaked copy of Sixteen Candles on DVD. I mean, my sister’s copy.
The full interview is set to air this Sunday at 8 PM PST on 101.5 FM KFLY and streaming here. Here’s the entire Ozzy-related audio clip, dripping with agony, bleeps and “not giving a rats ass”.
