In Revolver's video series "Rise Above," artists open up about the personal and creative adversity they've faced and reveal how they turn such struggles into art. In episode three, Black Label Society leader Zakk Wylde discusses how hard drinking almost took his life and how he found sobriety. See him recount the "animal house" years touring with Ozzy Osbourne and the pivotal moment when his health went downhill and his doctor told him he would die if he didn't make a radical change in his lifestyle — an experience that led the singer/guitarist to abide by a key piece of Ozzy wisdom and find the inner strength to stop drinking.
