Zakk Wylde, "I Think It's Great That Avenged Sevenfold Is Having All This Success" & "[Synyster Gates] Is The Torchbearer For The Young Kids"

During an interview with Pop-Break, Zakk Wylde was asked his take on the state of modern guitar playing in rock and metal and this is what he had to say:

PB: What’s your take on the state of modern guitar playing in rock and metal? I know you’re a big fan of Synyster Gates from Avenged Sevenfold.
ZW: I think it’s great that Avenged Sevenfold is having all this success; it’s awesome for the whole rock community in general. He’s the torchbearer for the young kids now to play solos, learn the scales, and develop a feel. The same thing with Randy [Rhoads, Ozzy Osbourne/Quiet Riot], aside from the amazing songs and solos, he always made it cool to want to learn so you’re knowledgeable with the guitar. He made having wisdom with the instrument cool.
