SPIT­FIRE MAY 2004 It’s strange to think that man moun­tain Zakk Wylde quit the evil brew al­most a decade ago. ad­mit­tedly, be­ing told by a doc­tor that you’ll need a liver trans­plant by the age of 45 might in­cen­tivise such a de­ci­sion. Back in 2004, Ozzy Os­bourne’s gui­tarist side­kick was still knock­ing back the booze, but de­spite its ti­tle this laid­back re­lease pro­vided a win­dow into his mel­lower, more sen­si­tive side. “This is the most in­tro­spec­tive record of Wylde’s ca­reer to date,” wrote Mal­colm Dome in

Ham­mer’s eight out of 10 re­view. Per­haps its big­gest sur­prise was a haunt­ing, pi­ano-based cover of Pro­col harum’s clas­sic

A Whiter Shade Of Pale that Mal­colm called “more vin­tage wine than cheap rye”.
