Best known for a memorable stint as one of the only guitar players extroverted enough to be a creative and visual foil for Ozzy Osbourne – while at the same time not being eaten alive (not even figuratively) by Ozzy's fans for having the temerity to fill Randy Rhoads' shoes – on metal classics like No Rest for the Wicked and No More Tears, Zakk Wylde further proved his mettle/metal as frontman for swampy thrash outfit Black Label Society. From there he laid down solos for everyone from the Rippingtons to Black Veil Brides and dabbled in designing custom guitars and amplifiers for the more metallically inclined. Wylde recently dropped solo album Book of Shadows II, which shows that the old road dog still has more than a few tricks left, looking inward far more than ever before. Wylde played Orlando earlier this year as part of the shred-errific Generation Axe package tour, but this is your chance to check him out when he's running the show.
