Ex-Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde has named his newborn son after the band Black Sabbath.
The Black Label Society frontman revealed today that his fourth child is to be called Sabbath Page Wielandt Wylde. This isn’t Wylde’s first child to be named after a musical legend, as one of Sabbath’s siblings is named Hendrix.
Wylde sent Ozzy Osbourne a demo tape in 1987 and became his guitarist after that, performing with the band up until 2009. He then left and was replaced by Gus G.
An acoustic Black Label Society DVD named ‘Unblackened’ is due to be released later this year.
