METAL SHREDDER GUS G OF THE BAND FIREWIND WAS recently anointed by the Prince of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne, to take over the much-coveted guitar chair in Oz���s band. For more Q&A, plus a chops-busting lesson, check out the GP/Rock House issue of Ultimate Metal Guitar, on newsstands now.
“If there’s one player I’d love to trade licks with,” says Gus G, “it’s probably Al Di Meola. He is one of my favorites and a very versatile player. Obviously this wouldn’t be about heavy metal, but I would love to work with him. I’m not really a fusion guy, but I would learn a lot and be challenged by him, which is very exciting for a guy like me.”
