Interview with Gus G of Firewind

Alison “MetalBabe” Cohen Interviews Gus G. of Firewind

It was great talking to Gus G about The NAMM Show, the new Firewind CD, and what it was like working with the “Prince of Darkness.” The Greek-based power metal band Firewind just released their 8th CD entitled ‘Immortals’ on January 20th, which is a concept album based on Greek history and the 480 BC Battles of Thermopylae and Salamis. The band is currently discussing options of touring Europe, and will hopefully make it to Russia and South America for the first time. They would love to perform at some U.S. festivals if possible, so fingers crossed that Firewind makes it to the States.

“Playing guitar for Ozzy is a once in ten lifetimes opportunity.”

When asked if he was in shock when he found out in 2009 that he would be replacing Zakk Wylde in Ozzy Osbourne and joining him on tour he said, “Of course I was in shock, it came from out of nowhere. I had no idea.”
