Hello My name is Damien Reaper | The Official Ozzy Osbourne Site

Hello My name is Damien Reaper

I'm 24 Years old Metal Fan, Ozzy Fan
My Blind Mother raises me on Metal at the age 8
But 1st time I saw Ozzy's album Bark at the Moon
and the Oz-werewolf scared the s*** out of me
But I liked the songs and a headbanger

In 4th grade My school pointed the finger at me
For liking Metal and put in my file that I was Evil aswell as my mother.
Some kid lit a match in the bathroom and I was the 1st one that all
ganged up on me and blamed me but they found out afterwards
It was gas leaking though an air vent.

And also from some teachers put down for having a learning disable

Jr High and High School I was the Heavy Metal man
my Classmates stayed a dissance away but Never picked on me
Respected me all from Jocks to Cheerleaders and Our Kind.

And Tried to form many bands over 9 or ten years
Now in the band To be Afraid we are trying to make something of myself
plus I work for Dungeons of Delhi in cincinnati, Ohio
I've been with them for 7 years and now formed with other haunted houses
called (CincyHaunts.com)

"Ozzy Thanks for being Ozzy" and like other fans showed me a stong path
of being true to yourself.

God Bless ,
Damien Addams Reaper

You sound very interesting. I think most Ozzy fans are considered evil by the mainstreamers.

Did you come to stare or wash away the blood?

As for one being in school & being a head-banger, life was anything but easy to say the least. When I was in high school in the early 80’s, it was almost unbearable the chastising one would get for listening to lets say a artist such as Ozzy, Metallica, & especially the infamous unholy of the unholiest, “Slayer”! Some people either out of fear, or as I like to think pure stupidity didn’t even begin to understand the early hard-rock/thrash metal movement back in what I like to call “The prehistoric 80’s”, or never dared to factor the thought of the effect it may have had on ones own individuality, hell even their spiritually for that matter.

I was habitually called a freak, a dork, and was repeatedly threatened with violence on more than a few occasions for my taste in music, but now it being 20 plus years after the fact, I feel it is I who has been vindicated, it is I who is having the satisfaction of getting the last laugh. Why? Because most of the bands that were popular in my teenage days are nothing but a mere blur, a blip on the big radar screen known as music. Almost all the bands I took a beating for liking have gone on to be legendary bands, like Metallica, Slayer, & Mr. Osbourne to name a few.

So it is I who say to you all, never fear to be yourself, find your own individuality & run with it. Don’t ever fall victim of what is the popular stance in music, art, or the media. I have to admit I am at times almost like a proud poppa, its great to look back and to realize that I was right about so many bands, so many times, its only in retrospect that I regret not going to school to be a producer, or a manager in the music biz. I now know all these years later that maybe I had that spark, or the eye to pick out greatness in a band or artist. So I guess I have only but one great regret in my life. And with that said folks let me tell you it’s been nothing short of an endless void of darkness in my life, that I have only been able to fill with the help of all the great musical artists that I have loved, & followed all these fine years.

With Ozzy filling in the most of course!

Thanks Ozz!

Peace…

As for one being in school & being a head-banger, life was anything but easy to say the least. When I was in high school in the early 80’s, it was almost unbearable the chastising one would get for listening to lets say a artist such as Ozzy, Metallica, & especially the infamous unholy of the unholiest, “Slayer”! I suspect some people either out of fear, or as I like to think pure stupidity didn’t even begin to understand the early hard-rock/thrash metal movement back in what I refer to as “The prehistoric 80’s”. I think its also fair to say they never dared to consider the after effect of their excessive chastising, & how it may have permanently effected that persons search for their own individuality, hell even their spirituality!

As for my prison sentence called high school, I was habitually called a freak, a dork, and was repeatedly threatened with violence on more than a few occasions strictly because of my taste in music. But with it now almost being 20 plus years after the fact, I feel it is I who has finally been vindicated, it is I who is having the satisfaction of getting the last laugh. Why? Because most of the bands that were popular within my peer group are now nothing more than a mere blur, a blip on the big radar screen known as music. In fact almost all the bands I took a beating for liking back in my school days have gone on to be legendary bands, like Metallica, Slayer, & Mr. Osbourne to name just a few.

So it is I who say to you all, never fear to be yourself, find your own individuality & run with it. Don’t ever fall victim of what is the popular stance in music, art, or the media.

f*** the norm I say!

Before I close this string out, I only have to admit that I am at times almost like a proud poppa, its great to look back and to realize that I was right about so many bands, so many times, its only now in retrospect that I regret not going to school to be a producer, or a manager in the music biz. I now know all these years later that maybe I did actually have that spark, or the keen eye to pick out greatness in a band or artist. So with that said, I guess I have only but one regret in my life, & thats not believing enough in myself. It’s been nothing short of an endless void of absolute darkness, thus resulting in me only trying to fill that great chasm with the music that I have loved, & followed all these years of my life!

With Ozzy's music filling in the biggest portion of that chasm of course!

Thanks Ozz!

Peace…
