Fan-filmed video footage of Greek guitar virtuoso Gus G., well known in rock and metal circles for his work as Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist and as leader of his own band FIREWIND, performing on September 25 at Trädgår’n in Gothenburg, Sweden can be seen below.
Gus G. is currently touring Europe as the support act for KAMELOT. Also appearing on the bill is KOBRA AND THE LOTUS.
Gus G.’s current backing band on tour includes Henning Basse on vocals, Strutter on bass and Gus’s FIREWIND bandmate Jo Nunez on drums.
Gus G.’s second solo album, “Brand New Revolution”, was released in Europe on July 24 via Century Media. The CD was made available through Century Media in Australia and South America, Dismanic/eOne in North America and King Records in Japan. The cover artwork was once again created by Gustavo Sazes, who previously worked with Gus on the guitarist’s debut album, “I Am The Fire”, and also took care of artwork duties by such bands as ARCH ENEMY, KAMELOT and FIREWIND.
“Brand New Revolution” features guest vocal appearances by Jeff Scott Soto (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JOURNEY, TALISMAN), Elize Ryd (AMARANTHE), Jacob Bunton (ADLER, LYNAM) and Mats Levén (CANDLEMASS, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, TREAT).
“Brand New Revolution” was recorded with Jay Ruston (STONE SOUR, ANTHRAX, STEEL PANTHER) and mixed by Mike Fraser (METALLICA, AC/DC, VAN HALEN, AEROSMITH). Just as on “I Am The Fire”, the core of Gus’s recording group consisted of Jo Nunez (FIREWIND) on drums and Marty O’Brien (LITA FORD) on bass.
