Jude Emcees Guitar Center "Sessions" with Ozzy Osborne Guitarist Gus G
Following in the footsteps of Zakk Wylde, Jake E. Lee, Brad Gillis, and the late, great Randy Rhoads, Greece's Gus G ("I'm metal to the core," he says) has big shoes to fill as the new lead guitarist for rock and roll's royal madman, Ozzy Osbourne. And fill the shoes well, he does.
In front of a packed house at Guitar Center Hollywood, and filmed for the Web, Jude had the honor of interviewing the "hottest pick" in metal for an hour in a clinic setting. Following on the heels of another Guitar Center Session Jude led with studio guitar legend Carl Verheyen a few weeks earlier, the Gus G interview was quite revealing, as Jude got the inspired, dedicated, and versatile young Greek guitar hero to share everything from his life story to his musical development to his experience leading his own band, Firewind, to surviving the "Blizzard of Ozz" each night onstage on Mr. Osbourne's current world tour.
