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.

"Wylde claims the neighbor was "deemed mentally ill"

Change the word mentally ill to diabetic and you will see the bias. Criminiality and mental illness do not go hand in hand.
Zakk Wylde is implying that his neighbour must be dangerous because he may have bipolor disorder. Stick to the facts Zakk.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

What does he expect. Him & the other satan worshippers walk around embracing the darkness, singing about the devil, & writing music that only sees the crappy side of living. Did he think he was going to be visited by a little old lady with a basket of flowers?

Good call on Zakk's part. The day that nutjob shot up Dimebag changed the world. Still remember it like yesterday. Saw them here in NY on my birthday the week before and even got to drink with Dime and Vinny. A week later, dead, and these were nice guys who were approachable, the invited me to hang with them because they heard it was my b-day. SDMF, Queens, NY Chapter.

Zakk is a badass but he's no thrash guitarist. What's up with these trendy Lady Gaga loving TMZ people and their lack of musical knowledge? I guess Google was broke when they did their research.

When you guys say Zakk should kick the guys ass you mean the guy who back in the day wore lots of spandex with teased hair and played guitar with Janet Jackson?? That ass-kicking Zakk Wylde from the past??? LOL come on now.. I don't blame the aging rocker for calling the cops, he's too old and unkempt to protect himself after all those hamburgers and years he's forgotten to shave.
