Zakk Wylde Cancels Iowa Show After Run In With Local Tall Boys

I hope to God that Sharon Osbourne wasn't right about Zakk Wylde. It's been hinted that she dismissed Zakk from Ozzy's band because he was too much in love with the bottle to be a very productive member.

Which is hilarious when you consider how unproductive Ozzy has been throughout his entire career.

Never mind the on-going bitterness that Ozzy has against Black Sabbath for suggesting that he was too loaded to continue fronting them.

And what did they do?

Fire him.

Zakk certainly hasn't delivered his Blizzard Of Oz yet and it doesn't look like he's those of us firmly entrenched with anti-Sharon feelings.

UPDATE! It has nothing to do with the drink, apparently, and everything to do with blood clots. So unless this ailment is code for "The Shakes," there doesn't seem to be any concern for Wylde's liver.

(New York, NY) - Black Label Society was forced to cancel a scheduled tour stop on the Black Label Berzerkus tour last night at the Anchor Inn in Omaha, Nebraska due to frontman Zakk Wylde's health. Tonight's appearance in Clive, Iowa at the 7 Flags Event Center has also been cancelled. Wylde was admitted to a hospital in Nebraska late yesterday afternoon and was diagnosed with a blood clotting condition in his leg. Wylde first suffered from blood clots in August, 2009. As of now, the Black Label Berzerkus is set to continue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the Eagles Ballroom this Saturday, October 2nd.BLS apologizes to ticket holders of last night's and tonight's shows. Every effort will be made to reschedule the missed tour dates. Ticket holders can hold on to their tickets or tickets can be refunded at the place of purchase. Meet & greet package refunds will be processed promptly. Further updates on Wylde's medical condition will be made available as they become known. For more information, please visit: and
