A special and limited expanded edition of the solo debut album “I Am The Fire” by OZZY OSBOURNE / FIREWIND guitarist GUS G. is out now via Century Media Records.
Watch the video here:
GUS G. has checked in to comment about the video’s background and storyline as follows:
“I worked on this track with producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy, 5FDP, etc.), his son Kane and Alexia Rodriguez from ESTK. Once we finished it, we knew we had a special song in our hands.
The “Long Way Down” lyrics were inspired by a scene I witnessed many years ago, when I briefly lived in Sweden. What I saw, is the exact storyline with the girl in this video.
We hear about suicides all the time in the news, it’s always shocking. Hundreds of thousands of people deal with depression everyday. They’re brave.
If there is one message we’d like to pass out with this song & video, is that suicide can be prevented. If you need help, or know someone who does, reach out to any organization of the following: http://www.suicide.org/international-suicide-hotlines.html
Many thanks to Patric Ullaeus for your belief, your dedication and always awesome videos!”
Additionally, an instructional clip by GUS G: for the instrumental track “Vengeance” has now being launched by the Guitar Pro blog. Check it out here: http://blog.guitar-pro.com/2014/11/gus-g-vengeance-guitar-riff/
The special new CD + DVD Digipak version of “I Am The Fire” features 4 bonus tracks and a 62-minutes bonus DVD (Including 4 video clips, 3 live tracks, 6 guitar tutorials as well as an EPK and Track-By-Track Commentary).
