The rumors that Gus G. will play with Ozzy Osbourne at Blizzcon Festival… (recently revealed through Metalpaths.com) finally came true.
Ozzy Osbourne gave a show at Blizzcon Festival and the line up for the show consisted of guitarist Gus G. (FIREWIND, MYSTIC PROPHECY, NIGHTRAGE, ARCH ENEMY), drummer Tommy Clufetos (ROB ZOMBIE, ALICE COOPER, TED NUGENT), bassist Rob “Blasko” Nicholson (ROB ZOMBIE) and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.
The highlight of the show was a nine-year-old guitar prodigy Yuto Miyazawa that joined Ozzy and the rest of his group on stage to perform the Osbourne classic “Crazy Train”.
OZZY OSBOURNE issued a statement on Friday (August 21) confirming reports that longtime Osbourne musicians Zakk Wylde (guitar) and Mike Bordin (drums) would not be joining him for the BlizzCon performance due to their current touring commitments with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and FAITH NO MORE, respectively.
In addition to his current axe-slinging duties with FIREWIND, Gus (real name: Kostas Karamitroudis) has played in MYSTIC PROPHECY, NIGHTRAGE, ARCH ENEMY and DREAM EVIL.
