I'm a fan (and you should be too) because...

I was almost a teenager when I purchased with my money I made from odd jobs Blizzard Of Ozz/Diary Of A Madman. Unfortunately I was not allowed to go see you in concert. I was living in a foster home and was being abused. It was a nightmare but, your music saved me. From the moment I put your record on, heard the lyrics and guitar playing (which from then on Randy Rhoads has always been my favourite guitar player) I was hooked. I remember how your music was blamed for people committing suicide which I know is far from the truth. I know that besides me, god knows the amount of people your music saved and helped during the years. I would listen to your music for hours on end and disappear into my little world just to escape the life I was living at the time. I have watched footage of these two concerts (not official one's unfortunately) but, it will never be the same as actually seeing you on stage with Randy, Tommy Aldridge and Rudy Sarzo.

If I ever get the chance to meet you in person (have seen you in concert when you came to Ottawa, Ontario Canada) will be my ultimate dream come true. I am 41yrs old now and have met members of Blue Oyster Cult, Lighthouse etc. but, won't even come close to what an experience it would be meeting you.

Thank you for the years of music and for doing it for your fans.
