I Am Ozzy

I felt kind of reluctant to read Ozzy’s autobiography since I did not want to get a story about drug abuse and ridiculous shenanigans presented in a way that is supposedly cool to do. You see, Rock ‘n’ Roll abuse has become the latest trend in autobiographies and I think has lost its point of existence. In other words, I do not want to read how an artist went to the extremes and how he survived because his way of thinking/living; this does not compute with my mind. Plus, I am sure many stories get revised, revamped and recharged to make them look meaner, more extreme adding some sci-fi to this. Anyway, this is Ozzy we are talking about, so my defenses were defeated and there I was, reading a most entertaining that sounded like a genuine product of Ozzy's chaotic thinking.

Tales From The Stage - Volume 1

Sometimes metalheads think they know an artist to a level that they get frustrated when one of their idols decides to change direction in music or even choose political sides. One way to avoid hitting icebergs like those is to read interviews and see how your favorite artist responds to questions that you’d like to do if you had the chance. Unfortunately, the quality and the level of details one can get from published interviews strongly depends on the interviewer who most of the times is not a fan like you and, in the worst cases, has absolutely no idea who is talking to. That means you have to be careful what you are reading and always apply your personal thinking filters to keep what you like and discard the rest.
