Wylde Cancels Rest Of Tour To Concentrate On Blood Clot

Guitarist ZAKK WYLDE has become the latest rocker to scrap dates because of ill health - he has been diagnosed with blood clots in his lungs.
The longtime Ozzy Osbourne sideman was hospitalised after a concert in Montana on 19 August (09) and now he has ditched his remaining Black Label Society dates after taking a turn for the worse.
According to Blabbermouth.net, Wylde was admitted to a Eugene, Oregon hospital on Tuesday afternoon (25Aug09).
The singer/guitarist joins Steven Tyler, Slipknot's Joey Jordison, Rod Stewart, Tommy Lee and Liam Gallagher on rock's summer (09) sick list.
Aerosmith's Tyler is nursing a broken collarbone after falling from the stage at a South Dakota show, Jordison is in hospital for a "severe medical emergency", Lee has been forced to sit out of Motley Crue's tour after burning his left hand and Stewart and Gallagher have both scrapped recent gigs due to throat problems.
