Fan-filmed video footage of 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 the OZZY OSBOURNE classic “Crazy Train” on March 5 at Kulturbolaget in Malmö, Sweden can be seen below. Joining Gus at the show on vocals was Jeff Scott Soto, who has previously sung for TALISMAN, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, JOURNEY and YNGWIE MALMSTEEN.
A special expanded edition of Gus‘ solo album, “I Am The Fire”, was released in Europe on November 3, 2014 (digitally in North America on November 4). This limited CD + DVD digipak features four bonus tracks and a 62-minute bonus DVD (including the album’s four official video clips so far, plus three live tracks, six guitar tutorials, as well as an EPK and track-by-track commentary).
“I Am The Fire” entered the official chart in Greece at position No. 27. The CD sold around 700 copies in the United States in its first week of release.
“I Am The Fire” was mixed by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR, STEEL PANTHER) and was recorded between Los Angeles and Gus‘ home country of Greece through the latter half of 2013. The album showcases a well-balanced mix of active rock, classic hard rock, traditional metal and guitar-driven instrumentals, taking listeners on a diverse journey and opening doors to Gus G.‘s soulful playing.
