Zakk Wylde was recently asked by Songfacts to single out his favorite young band these days, to which he replied:
“Them Evils. They’re just a bunch of young guys and it’s all riff-based music, so it was pretty cool.
“I was so glad, because when you listen to a lot of new music it’s not really riff-driven, you know, with riffs like Cream, like ‘Sunshine of Your Love,’ or Sabbath, where everything’s based around a riff, and Zeppelin and stuff like that.
“It’s weird, it’s kind of like a lost art or people are just not into that. So, when you hear a younger bunch of artists that are into blues or into riffs, it’s just kind of like, ‘Oh wow.’ Just like the old saying, ‘Everything that’s old is new again’ – it’s been gone for so long, it’s almost like, ‘Wow, what’s that?'”
