Brewtal Lesson: Be All You Can Be with Zakk Wylde's Guitar Boot Camp
In this classic lesson, Zakk Wylde leads you through his brewtal guitar boot camp!
11. BE TRUE TO YOUR MUSIC
“There are some people that only want to be famous,” says Zakk. “And then you’ve got the real musicians who love playing music. The ones who love their art will always last, while the pop stars that only care about being famous or getting a piece of ass will always fall by the wayside.
For me, it’s not about fame or money. I do what I do because I love making music—period. If I hadn’t been lucky enough to land the Ozzy gig, I wouldn’t be working a regular job; I’d be teaching guitar lessons and playing five nights a week in a cover band or something. If you commit yourself to music, it ain’t a hobby. When music chooses you, you do it.”
