Legendary guitar player Zakk Wylde performed at Rock on the Range with his band using the moniker Zakk Sabbath. Solely covering Black Sabbath songs, they should have been allotted a much longer time frame than the thirty-minute set that they were permitted to play.
Of course, that didn't stop them from going over. Wylde, one of the most well-respected guitar players in the metal industry, did absolute justice to Tony Iommi and his iconic riffs. Particularly, the bands' renditions of "War Pigs" and "N.I.B." were very well received by the crowd. Zakk Sabbath had the largest second stage crowd of the day, and paying homage to the founding band of heavy metal proved to be just what was needed.
