Dear Ozzy please read
As for Ozzfest I am happy Ozzy that you & Sharon started this whole experience, but at the same time I kind of grieve to see you just headline a normal show one last time, just you the Ozzman & an opening band like in the olden days. This request is not for myself I must admit, I have had that experience more than on one occasion, but my kids have not. Ozzfest is great for the older kids, but mine are still little guys. So I dare not take them for several reasons, one being that not even all adults, let alone kids can stand the strain of the summertime heat, & large crowds that are a fact of any normal Ozzfest show, let alone the time range that it spans throughout the day, no little guys are going to sit & have the patience enough to wait for you to finally take the stage. I think Ozzy you need to drop doing Ozzfest for a while, & do a round of touring like you did when you did your so-called out of retirement tour. I was fortunate enough to have caught that tour in St. Louis at the American theater. It is probably the most intimate, & rememborable show of yours I have ever seen. Again its not for me that I ask this of you, its purely for my kids, I don’t want them to miss seeing you & having to say they never got the chance to see the Madman himself, kind of like it is for me & John Lennon. It still breaks my heart I missed out on all that, I hate that I was young & wasn’t able to go to one of Johns shows, mostly due to the fact that my parents didn’t want to fight all those huge crowds. So it is for these reasons I wish for you Ozzy to take a break from this whole festival thing, & come back to us via a few select club shows, of course one of them being a stop at St Louis of course.
Also if anybody else that has kids & feels the same as I do, please drop a line and let Ozzy know that maybe this could be a awesome event in itself...
Until it actually happens, one can always dream I guess????
