Re: ozzy's new guitarist (gus g)
Here are my thoughts on the subject:
Gus G is no doubt a phenomenal guitar player. He is technically proficient on the instrument, dare I say more so than any previous ozzy guitarist? The problem for me is: Gus G doesn't strike me as totally original. His stuff with fire-wind was cool.. but nothing groundbreaking to say the least. Also, he doesn't seem to bring anything new to the ozzy tunes. Zakk Wylde put his stamp on the ozzy songs randy did and made them his own, I have yet to see that with Gus G. Quite frankly, I'm not sure if its even possible for him to add anything new. His style is incredibly generic to me. Even when hes playing songs like crazy train or no more tears, he sounds more like hes just up there doing a karaoke performance.. No wow factor for me.
I guess only time will tell.. I don't think its possible for Gus to destroy ozzy's career any further.
