Check out this new video of Zakk Wylde, the ultimate guitar teacher!

When Zakk’s guitar student, “Father Phil,” just can’t get the hang of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven,” Zakk clocks him.

Who can blame him? It’s frustrating!

The best part of this video is when Zakk says, “Play it right!” at the very end.

We’ll check back with Father Phil to see if he eventually gets the hang of it!

P.S.: In case you can’t take a joke (so many people can’t take a joke), Zakk is kidding, folks. He normally punches much harder.

For Everybody out There wondering if FATHER PHIL Is Improving w/His STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN Guitar Lesson…tBLSt SDMF

    I’m cracking up at this and can’t get it out of my head … I’ve been there trying to teach a friend who’s shown some interest in wanting to learn and they could grasp the ease of Louie, Louie!

    I saw Zakk at a small club in Highland,Indiana. The drummer had a bit too much to drink before they went on stage. About four or five songs into the first set, Zakk spun around and smashed a Heineken bottle on the bass drum and screamed,”Did you forget my song mother f—er?” He stopped in the middle of the next song and ordered him off his stage, then proceeded to beat the crap out of the guy,in full view of the entire crowd. Zakk’s a big boy, it was quite the spectacle. Zakk finished the show with the drummer from the local,warm-up band. They played an awesome set of covers, and I’ve loved him ever since. So in my eyes, this video is nothing.
