Rocker Zakk Wylde has been given the OK to return to the road after battling a blood clot.
Ozzy Osbourne's former guitarist was forced to pull the plug on dates with his band Black Label Society last month (Aug09) after being diagnosed with a rare genetic clotting disorder.
He's still receiving treatment in California, but doctors insist he'll be well enough to make it to a Halloween show in New York on 31 October (09), where he'll promote his new limited-edition Epiphone Graveyard Disciple guitar.
In a recent message to fans, Wylde revealed he "was given a CT scan where they found three clots. I was then told each one of the clots passed through my heart.
"My left leg has a clot above the side and behind my knee, my calf and running into my heel. My right leg has a clot in between my calf and ankle."
He's unable to sing "because pushing can cause an embolism".
