Holy shit, what an exciting morning this is turning out to be.

So. As you may recall, Ozzy recently revealed that he was replacing Zakk Wylde, to which Wylde responded, in so many words: “Huh?”

Then, a few days later, Wylde upgraded his “Huh?” to a “It’s all good,” even though everything we’ve heard tells us that it is not all good.

And it isn’t. For the burly man from dirty Jerz is Zakk Denylde no more. He recently called in to a radio station in Eugene fucking Oregon, of all places, and when asked about the whole sitch with the Ozzman, responded thusly:

“I’ve gotta be honest with you. The boss [Ozzy] hasn’t even given me a phone call, so I mean… I’m just like… I don’t know what’s going on over there. Are we doing this thing or are we not doing it? When I keep getting asked these questions, I go, ‘Call the boss. When he tells you, then he can call me back.’ I mean, it’s just like… I love you, man. Whatever you want, that’s cool. But if we’re doing this, let’s do it, and let’s whoop some ass. But if you don’t wanna do it, then just give me a heads-up. Call me, man. Tell me what the hell’s going on. I don’t know what the hell’s going on over there. We’re working on the new record, we’ll be back in September, we’ll work on finishing the record. And then we’re supposed to do the tour. I mean, it’s like, dude, you don’t wanna play with me anymore? Fine. Play with whoever the hell you wanna play with. I couldn’t give a rat’s ass. Like I’m gonna get all jealous or whatever. But you know what?! Man up and give me a phone call and tell me what the hell’s going on. You finished with me? Cool. I mean, it’s just like… Everything’s sounding like Black Label? I guess everything sounded like Black Label when I first started with you, when I was 19. It was still the same guy; I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

If you go here, you can download an mp3 of Zakk’s whole rant, including a pretty funny/sad section, not included above, where he basically just starts cursing out Ozzy. Seriously, Zakk sounds like a scorned lover.

So what does this all mean? As we’ve been saying this whole time, it is the firm belief of MetalSucks that Zakk will no longer be Ozzy’s guitar player.

But beyond that, it just confirms what we already knew, and have known for a long time now: Ozzy is a dick and Sharon is a bitch. Seriously, man. Just break up with your guitar player like a real man. You’re the godfather of his child, fer Chrissakes. Don’t you think you’ve already done enough damage to your legacy?
