Hi guys,

yesterday I went to see Ozzy Osbourne live in Oberhausen, and I gotta admit, he rocked the arena smile.gif The old man sure knows how to entertain a crowd, and he played all the songs the people wanted to hear. Pretty much old stuff from the Blizzard of Ozz album. And I gotta say, Gus G. is an amazing guitar player!
At first I thought the supporting band would be way better than Ozzy, given the fact that Zakk Wylde himself was the support with his band Black Label Society. Although they played really great, Zakk never even tried to make a connection with the audience...plus, when I compare his long guitar solo with the one that Gus G. did later, the youngster wins since his was way more melodic, he used more techniques and just seemed to know where he was going next, while Zakk seemed to play a ton of random licks.

Gus G is the real deal. Love his playing.

Can Ozzy still sing? last i checked he was loosing his voice as it was beocming really shaky .. very evident in live shows.

He sounded great when he was in Stockholm. Rumors says he uses one of these voice correctors to get the right notes. I don't mind, as song as it sounds as good as it does.

Well, I think his singing was really good, standing literally ten metres away from him. When I checked some youtube videos today, I thought "well, his singing sounded much better when I was in the Arena...". But I usually think the same when I go to other concerts and then check some videos afterwards...don't know why that is.

I keep seeing all these awesome gig topics being posted, and it.. it hurts. I'm counting down the days to Sonisphere laugh.gif

When I saw Gus with Ozzy, he didn't sound so great, but saying that, this is one of my fav songs from Gus:

I'm with MickeM on the voice-correction software, it's def. there, and it's a whole load better that way tongue.gif Heck, he even uses teleprompters for the lyrics! Still love the Ozzman, though \m/ \m/
