Zakk Wylde And Scott Ian Battle For The ‘Best Beard In Metal’

Revolver TV

When it comes to rock, it means long hair…well it used to at least. But two Metal Gods are bringing back what makes metal look damn good, BEARDS! But who has the best one? Thrash Metal guitarist Scott Ian of Anthrax? Or Guitar God Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society?

From Revolver Magazine/Loudwire:

The was the question posed by Wylde to a distinguished rock panel including Slayer‘s King Kerry and members of Anthrax during a special Revolver TV interview.

Ian set the tone before any so-called experts weighed in. “I’m giving it up for you for sure,” said the Anthrax star. “You and [Slayer’s] Kerry have me crushed, it’s not even close. I’ve got a Chihuahua and you’ve got a Rottweiler.”

Wylde jokingly described his own beard as “Jewish” and Ian’s goatee as “Irish Catholic” despite the fact that it is the Anthrax guitarist who is actually Jewish.

With even Ian admitting Wylde was the favorite, in came a string of rockers to weigh in. Wylde got off to a fast start, winning votes from Kerry (who was wearing a T-shirt from Brooklyn’s fine Duff’s Alcohol Abuse Center), the members of Anthrax and even rock scribe Eddie Trunk. It wasn’t until performance artists/DJ Lady Starlight offered her opinion that Ian even tallied a single vote.

Who has the ultimate METAL BEARD? Zakk Wylde? Scott Ian? Kerry King? Dimebag Darrell? Comment below!
