Zakk Wylde and Dimebad Darrell were drinking buddies. In a recent Interview with Jamey Jasta, Zakk shared few moments:
“There were very few that could hang with St. Dime. Pepper [Keenan, of Corrosion of Conformity and Down] was just telling me some severe comedy the other day about Dime coming in at like 8 o’clock in the morning when we were touring Australia or something. At 8 in the morning with just a tray full of Crown [Royal], Black Tooths… Like 50 Black Tooths.
“And he was like, ‘We’re doing a drinking contest, last man standing’ or whatever. And it got down to the point where we drank all day until Pepper said, ‘Zacky, we drank the hotel out of booze and the only thing that was left was those little bottle of Kahlua.’
“And we actually went down on those things. Then it got to a point where we just called it a truce. [Laughs] Probably both their livers were throbbing out of their bodies along with their pancreas and kidneys. It was beyond silly.”
