Gus G & Jeff Scott Soto @Vampd 10/17/14
Gus G is a guitar virtuoso from Greece that started out with his own band Firewind back in the late 90’s. I have always loved Gus and his stylish metal shred and melodic hooks since I first heard Firewind on Allgience. (In 2006) He gained a lot of fame when Ozzy picked him to replace Zakk Wylde in 2009. If anyone deserves a gig like that it’s Gus, who is always a humble and kind man to his fans while being an immensely ferocious player onstage.
His new solo CD, that was released last March on CM, called “I Am the Fire” is just that. On fire!! Every song could or should be a hit. Very melodic rock/metal with catchy hooks and fierce guitar playing with powerful vocals by some fantastic guests that sang on this CD. Gus recruited some amazing vocal talent for his vision: Mats Leven (ex-YNGWIE MALMSTEEN/THERION), Blake Allison (DEVOUR THE DAY), Michael Starr (STEEL PANTHER), Alexia Rodriguez (EYES SET TO KILL), Tom S. Englund (EVERGREY), Jacob Bunton (ADLER) and Jeff Scott Soto (TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, ex-JOURNEY)….
