I was showing my nine-year-old son some stuff about music history tonight (mainly using You Tube for examples). I retired from the Marine Corps 4 1/2 years ago and am in the midst of a very successful second career with Lockheed Martin in Fort Worth. I educated him on some pretty cool artists starting with Bob Marley, The Beatles, Ozzy, and then of course I pointed out you and explained that we went to High School together at Jackson Memorial. You were a year or two ahead of me (I’m class of 1988 but graduated in Toms River), but I did participate in some Ozzy between period joint breaks behind the school. To my amazement, as I was showing my son some BLS videos, he told me he had the “fire and skulls” video on his IPad and you are his “favorite singer”. I was very good friends with Lori Destephano throughout High School, and I met her through Jon (remember Red Wings battle of the bands keyboard?). I saw Lori and her parents once after I left Jersey, and unfortunately we lost touch after that.
I have two questions. Is it appropriate to take a 9YO to a BLS concert, and is there any way my son can meet you and get your autograph when you’re in Grapevine,TX?
I would think it would be great if you took you kid to a show. I took my daughter to her first BLS concert and M&G when she was 9 at the SODO in Seattle. She had a great time. M&Gs are the only way to go and in fact we have M&Gs for the concert on the 16th of April right at the same venue when she first met Zakk. Bleed Black
