G!: What are your fondest memories from touring with Ozzy?
GG: "It's been an amazing ride so far! The whole tour was just incredible. Playing around the world in the biggest venues and headlining the biggest festivals, being a part of such a big production and playing with Ozzy, it's just mind blowing. We had great times on this tour, we really worked all as a team and I think we did some great gigs. Of course every moment you spend with Ozzy is precious. The stories, the advices, the jokes and of course all the gigs, it was just fantastic. Ozzy's an amazing person, it's hard not to love this guy."
G!: What is your favorite RANDY RHOADS song or solo (to perform or listen to)?
GG: "I love most of all his stuff. Of course 'I Don't Know' and 'Crazy Train' and also 'Over The Mountain', 'S.A.T.O.' and 'Diary of a Madman' are all favourites."
