Jeffrey Phillip Wielandt (born January 14, 1967), better known by his stage name Zakk Wylde, is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and occasional actor, best known as Ozzy Osbourne’s lead guitarist and as the founder of the heavy metal band Black Label Society. His signature bulls-eye design appears on many of his guitars and is widely recognized. He was the lead guitarist and vocalist in Pride & Glory, who released one self-titled album in 1994 before disbanding. As a solo artist he released Book of Shadows and Book of Shadows II.

Wylde played locally with his first band Stone Henge, then later with local Jersey band Zyris. Later, he auditioned for lead guitarist and co-writer for Ozzy Osbourne. Wylde was hired to replace Jake E. Lee, who replaced Brad Gillis, who had himself replaced the deceased Randy Rhoads. Rhoads remains Wylde’s foremost guitar-playing and stagecraft influence.[1]

Wylde gravitated toward a particular Les Paul guitar, which has become known as “The Grail”; his famous bullseye-painted Gibson Les Paul custom.
