Greek guitarist Kostas Karamitroudis, also known as Gus G., spoke in a recent interview with Canada’s ‘The Metal Voice’ and shared his thoughts about Black Sabbath legend Ozzy Osbourne.
As you may recall, Gus G. played with Ozzy’s band for eight years, recording 2010’s ‘Scream’ album with The Prince of Darkness.
When asked if he feels sick and tired of questions about Ozzy Osbourne and his solo band, Gus G. said that he is proud to be a part of the band.
On the other hand, we already know that he was disappointed that he wasn’t on Ozzy’s new album, ‘Ordinary Man,’ and never had the opportunity to record a new song or album with Ozzy.
Here’s what Gus G. wrote:
“No. I’m not, actually. If someone remembers me from that time, it’s good. This was the biggest gig I ever did, so how can I be sick of that? I’m proud that I was part of Ozzy‘s musical history, even though I have a small page there in the book.
But I’m very proud of that. I’m not sick of that. So I don’t care. I talk about it when people ask me about it. It’s something that I’m very proud that I got to do in my life.”
He also talked about Ozzy’s latest album, Ordinary Man, and said there are many good songs on the album. He continued:
“I checked it out when it came out, of course, and I checked out the singles as he was releasing them. I have to say that I like it. First of all, I wanna say that I’m happy that I see him kind of recovering and also being creative in his downtime.
This was very nice to see that. I thought the production was cool — it was very stripped down, I thought; kind of back-to-basics type of production, but still very big and clear. I think there are some really good songs on that record. ‘Under The Graveyard,’ I think that’s a really big song.”
