Some ideas to blog:
1. What's your thoughts on heavy metal music, and how have your perceptions and interest changed over time?
2. When was the first time you were exposed to music of this nature and how did that impact you?
3. Ozzy Osbourne, the vocalist for Black Sabbath, has had quite a career spanning far beyond his Black Sabbath roots. What connotations do you have with Ozzy and would you consider him a hero, icon, cultural detriment, or something else?
