Metal God Zakk Wylde

My Stalker Left Me a 'Sacrifice'

9/17/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0916_zakk_wild_getty_EXHeavy metal legend Zakk Wylde -- one of the greatest thrasher guitarists EVER -- claims he's "terrified" of an obsessed fan who recently left a "sacrifice" at his home ... this according to court docs obtained by TMZ.

Wylde -- founder of the heavy metal band Black Label Society -- filed a request for a restraining order against his 20-year-old neighbor ... claiming the guy has been stalking and harassing him a while.

According to the docs, Wylde recently called police to respond to an incident at his home involving the neighbor -- which resulted in cops placing the neighbor in a 72 hour hold for mental evaluation.

Wylde claims the neighbor was "deemed mentally ill" -- and diagnosed with bipolar 1 disorder.

An L.A. County Superior Court judge approved a temporary restraining order against the neighbor -- requiring him to stay at least 100 yards away from the rocker and his family.

Both sides are scheduled to appear in court on the matter on Friday.

Well its pretty obvious TMZ knows absolutely nothing about this genre of music (not surprisingly) since all the claims they made in the article about Zakk Mylde are wrong.

Wylde is a giant beast of a man. It must have been bad if he got intimidated by the guy.

surprised Zakk didn't get one of his loser fans to go after this guy.... after all, all of Zakk's fans think they're part of some wannabee biker club. see Zakk is a little *****, and HE KNOWS where him and his little fake ass biker gang aren't welcome. we don't like you or your little gang. keep you're little SDMF BLS crew where you belong... in *****ville you ******* ******.

One of his moronic fans probably thought he'd 'get off' on the 'sacrificed axe' judging from the toonage he plays.

Restraining orders are not very rock-n-roll, but times have changed. If this was 1973 Zakk could just thrash this guy in the face with a hard fist. Today, he would be sued 3 ways to mars if that happened. But as a commenter stated below, it is better to be safe than sorry given what happened to Dimebag.

no matter how much Zakk's tough persona is out there, in the end it's all about his FAMILY and I have major respect for him. Zakk's doin the responsible thing by protecting them and that's it! Anyone should do the same and I have no clue why his music and his fans are getting ridiculed for his actions!
