No, no; I'm not going there. It's super scary though.

Alright, well do you believe in Voodoo?
If the person doing it believes in it, then yeah, it probably works.

And how do you feel about Ozzy Osbourne?
I grew up listening to him, he rocked. It wasn't like, my first thing, but, ya know.

[Laughs] No.

Do you think it'll be the best thing this weekend?
I think it'll be the most memorable thing this weekend.

Zack:
First time.

Are you liking it so far?
Oh yeah. I'm here for Ozzy.

And what do you love about Ozzy?
One of the best of the '80s, if not ever. Top sellin', at least with Sabbath. And tonight, he's gonna be with Geezer and Tom Morello and Slash. It's gonna be dope.

People keep talking to me about him eating the head off of a bat again since it's Halloween.
He's not going to do that. That was a mistake.

What's the spookiest thing that's ever happened to you?
Dude. Sometimes just walking down the stairs, somebody might jump out at you and scare the shit out of you


Zombie football player and cheerleader, 46, New Orleans

What's the spookiest thing that's ever happened to you?
Keith:
When I was younger—I grew up in Niagara Falls, Buffalo—we had a haunted house near us that was part of the underground railroad, so there were guarded tunnels and caves in the area where you see some pretty crazy things.

Do you guys believe in Voodoo?
Kathy:
I believe in ghosts. I don't know if I believe in Voodoo, but I definitely believe in ghosts.

Are you guys going to see Ozzy Osbourne tonight?
Both: We are!

Why are you so excited?
Keith:
I was a Sabbath fan in the '80s, and it'll be great to see him again.
Kathy: I'd like to see if we can freakin' understand what he's saying!

When someone I knew who was close to me died, my entire room smelled like the smoke they used to smoke.


Pope, 17, New Orleans

Are you stoked for Ozzy?
Jason: He's like, the only reason I'm coming today.

What's the spookiest thing that's ever happened to you?
When I was five or six, my parents put an actual skeleton in my closet and told me to go pick out a shirt. I hate skeletons now.

Chicken, 20, New Orleans

What's the spookiest thing that's ever happened to you?

Probably so.

Vegeta, 29, Houston

How stoked are you for Ozzy Osbourne?
Mathew:
Oh, awesome. I'm super super super super excited. I love Ozzy Osbourne.

And why do you love him?
I got into him in the early 80s, and I just always loved his music. Him in Black Sabbath and him by himself and doing everything that he's done, creating a new genre of music and still being alive after all the drugs that he's done. He's doing what he does. He always puts 110% out to his fans. I love his music. I relate to a lot of things that he says. He's just an awesome person. I got to meet him once. He was doing his book signing for one of his latest books. It was one of my top things in terms of meeting artists.
