Zakk Wylde Willing To Work With Ozzy Again

If Ozzy Osbourne wanted to record again with Zakk Wylde, it would be easy -- all he has to do is ask.

Wylde told the Chicago Tribune, "My relationship with Ozzy and Mrs. O (Sharon Osbourne) is if they call me up and say, ‘Bring eggs and milk over and clean the dog run,’ I do it. If Oz wants to do another record then we knock it out. We haven’t spoken yet about a record. Basically, right now it’s about the shows."

Those shows will keep Ozzy and Zakk together through the fall, so there will be plenty of time to talk about recording. Ozzy has been working on a solo album off and on for the past two years during breaks from the final Black Sabbath tour.
