PRIDE & GLORY / ZAKK WYLDE - Herzensangelegenheit

In 1994 the only album of the Southern Rock formation Pride & Glory was released. After Ozzy Osbourne announced his first departure from the rock business after the album "No More Tears" (1991), guitarist Zakk Wylde suddenly had no job. In 1992 he founded the band Lynyrd Skynhead with the White-Lion rhythm team consisting of bassist James LoMenzo and drummer Greg D'Angelo. Some songs of the trio appeared on the sampler "L.A. Blues Authority Vol. 1" (1992), but under the name Zakk Wylde. In 1994, before the self-titled debut album was recorded, the name changed with the addition of drummer Brian Tichy (Billy Idol, Whitesnake, Foreigner and Kenny Wayne Shepherd). One year later the chapter Pride & Glory was over after a worldwide tour and several festival appearances in Europe. Because Ozzy called to record his next album "Ozzmosis" (1995).

I can reach Zakk Wylde by phone at his house in California.
