Kehidupan Pribadi

Zacky adalah anak sulung, mempunyai saudara perempuan yang bernama Zina, dan saudara laki-laki bernama Matt. Orangtuanya bernama James dan Maria. Zacky mempunyai pacar bernama Gena Paulhus.

Zacky memelihara anjing yang diberi nama Ichabod Crane Vengeance.


Pada DVD Avenged Sevenfold yang berjudul All Excess, Zacky mengatakan bahwa sebelum dia memasuki Avenged Sevenfold, dia sempat menjadi anggota dari grup musik beraliran punk rock bernama MPA atau Mad Porno Action yang gagal mencapai sukses. Maka itu Zacky dan M. Shadows membentuk Avenged Sevenfold.

Zacky mempelajari cara bermain gitar ketika dia berumur tiga belas tahun. Dia belajar secara otodidak. Gitar yang pertama kali ia gunakan adalah gitar ayahnya.
