Heavy Metal Blogs:
I Like Ozzy!
June 30, 2009
Unlike other bloggers on this site, I have no technical reasons as to why I like music. I like it if it makes me smile, makes me sing, makes me cry, or makes me dance. I don't like researching the music. I just like to listen to music.
One singer who makes me smile, sing and dance is Ozzy Osburne. I absolutely love him! I went to his concert in Halifax, and I fell in love. Sure, his music is classic - and for good reason. But I love Ozzy himself. I know he's done a lot and seen a lot in his years on tour, but he is not jaded by it. He is genuine in his attempt to entertain his audiences. He is, well, endearing. At the concert, when he clapped, I clapped. When he did his leapfrog, I cheered. I wanted with all my heart to let him know I appreciated him.
I have always been an animal lover, so I admit I never listened to Ozzy until the last few years. I wanted nothing to do with anyone who would bite the heads of bats (real or fake, that's just gross). But before the concert in Halifax, Ozzy and Sharon came down into the lobby of the hotel and Ozzy was carrying a little dog in a snuggly on his chest. I'm sure it was a crushing image blow to some fans, but it made me love him that much more.
Rock on, Ozzy. You're an inspiration to us all!
