In a new Interview with 93X Radio, Zakk Wylde talked about the first meeting with Ozzy Osbourne.
“Yeah. Obviously, being a huge fan, when he left Sabbath, and then when he started with Saint [Randy] Rhoads and when he was playing with Jake [E. Lee], we all loved Ozzy.
“When it came that he was auditioning guitar players, I was playing a club one night, it was, like, ‘Hey, Zakk, you ever think about auditioning for Ozzy?’. I was, like, ‘I don’t know, do you know the guys?’.
“The whole thing is I ended up making a cassette and taking some polaroids on my mom and dad’s porch in Jersey and then sending them to Ozzy.
“I remember Ms. Osbourne calling up from England; she was, like, ‘We’re going to fly you out to LA.’ All I remember is we got out there, Ozzy walked in a room, I was cr*pping my pants, and then Ozzy said, ‘Zakk, just play with your heart and change your pants. Go make me a ham sandwich and go light on the mustard.’
“So I was making ham sandwiches and going light on the mustard for over 30 years.”
