The National Anthem is a staple to the start of any sporting event in this great country. The legendary song has been performed numerous times by many high profile figures in various ways. The National Anthem on the guitar was first perfected by the likes of Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock nearly 50 years ago. Today, more shredders are taking the stage to honor our country the only way they can.
Black Label Society and Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde took to the court on Wednesday night (January 3rd) to perform the National Anthem prior to a Chicago Bulls game, in what would be a slam dunk performance.
In typical Zakk Wylde fashion, the National Anthem was turned up to 11 as the bustling, roaring, heavy tone of his guitar blasted through the United Center in Chicago, with a long line of face melting notes that kept the patriotic spirit of the song.
