What a damn shame. All the blabbermouth people are finding this very cool, and to some degree I share that excitement, but Ozzy has done nothing but suck this past decade, arguably longer. I love Firewind, and I would much rather have Gus stay in Firewind and keep his ideologies in there than try and fix a "band" that has long gone given out crap, for lack of better terms. Ah...it was bound to come anyway. To look on the bright side, Gus plays circles over Wylde, and his input into Ozzy will be interesting to say the least.

What a fucking waste. This is terrible news. I swear to god if this somehow leads to Firewind breaking up or anything like that, I will be absolutely irate.

I doubt this will affect Firewind's stance as band, but it's just the fact that it's so much wasted talent. Gus is a beast of a player, one of my favorites in the power metal genre, and he stands out a lot. And for him to be in Ozzy Osbourne? Really? A guy who hasn't put out anything even close to par? It's saddening to say the least. I share your massive dissapoint.

The reality of this is just slowly sinking in. God I can't even imagine what the eventual effects of this might be. God damn I don't want trendy metal hipsters listening to Firewind. I don't want trendy metal hipsters listening to Firewind. I don't want trendy metal hipsters listening to Firewind...

So, the consensus is that Gus G is too good for Ozzy? I agree.

Better than the BLS crowd showing up at your shows.

I'm not gonna act like this guy going to Ozzy is a triumph or a huge loss.
Oh what will metal do without Firewind...

The guy has quite a bit of technical prowess but it's nothing more than a bad match.
If you look at Ozzy's career, very little of his success and failure has to do with his own work. He's got a unique voice, he's good at being in the right place at the right time and yelling "I can't hear you".

Man, I like the guy, but Gus G is such a fucking mercenary. Constantly bailing out of bands to do something else.

I'm disappointed. I saw very little wrong with both 'Down To Earth' and 'Black Rain', and I've always loved Zakk, so if this is true, I won't be seeing Ozzy live on the next tour.

Trendy metal hipsters haven't taken Ozzy seriously since 2001. In fact, most of them jumped ship and became Dio/Dio Sabbath fans.

Personally, I'm more pissed about how Zakk got fucked out of the band than some power metal guitarist who means nothing to me.

Pretty lame, but I mean from Gus's point of view this is probably a huge opportunity for him and like someone above me said, the dude's gotta pay his rent. I also hope this doesn't like to the breaking up of Firewind.
