Essentially Gus G is a cover musician.
During this tour anyway.... What did he play...ONE song from Scream?
Not that its a bad thing, he just hasnt had a canvas to show what he can do...
So far he can emulate Zakk...but he`s no Zakk.
He`s the next flavor of the day as far as great guitarists Ozzy snags in his long and winding road of a career.
Gus still has a long way to go to "prove" himself....he`s good. But he fucking should be.
That is the least he could do...he`s working for Ozzy. Lets see him kick it up a few notches.
My opinion is that he is towing the load as a guitar sideman during this tour so Zakk Wylde can do his own solo BLS tour.
It`s a job....it`s only a rock and roll job.
If he gets caught drinking a beer will he get fired?
Hopefully for Gus G and the rest of the fans who will pay to see him with Ozzy this winter....he will get to play more of his stuff so we can get a real read on his abilities.
Falling all over him and marveling at the peanuts in his shit are a bit premature I`d say.
Give the kid a chance to make or break....
