I left November 1st out in remembrance of my late grandfather Mark H. Whom died of terminal liver cancer in 2016. So I decided to leave yesterday out for him. May he rest in peace.
Within this month I will make a personal blog post on what’s going on within my life at the moment. But it’s been a long time since I had the spark or even the confidence to write on this blog. I have been bullied and there are things in my household that are causing a major drop in my mental health in terms of depression and anxiety.
2020 has been a real shithole for anyone right now. No pun intended. Since I don’t really want to overwhelm myself with a extensive review of Andy Blacks(Biersack) “Ghost of Ohio” and Black Veil Brides both “The Night” ep and “Re-Stitch” 10 year anniversary re-release.
Plus I am disabled and I don’t really like to overwhelm myself at all. It is not great mentally and emotional wise to do. It also affects me physically also. I don’t like to spike my migraine that’s already a shithole to deal with. Such a pain really.
So let’s get on with starting this new and exciting project. It’s going to be very fun(not overwhelming). I have a random picker on Microsoft excel so I will be reviewing random songs by the three albums I mentioned above.
Chronic Potato Queen Writer Song of The Day is: Ghost of Ohio.
Ghost of Ohio is featured on Andy Blacks sophomore solo album “The Ghost of Ohio”. Which is released on April 12, 2019 on Republic and Lava records. “The Ghost of Ohio” also has a featured graphic novel to go alongside with the album. To buy the album and graphic novel go here.
Ghost of Ohio is featured on any streaming service for your convenience like Apple music, spotify, and YouTube. Plus on physical vinyl and CDs as well. To watch the official music video filmed by Patrick Fogarty(Longtime BVB conosuier film producer). Watch here.
Ghost of Ohio can lyrically be interpreted into many different types of ways by the listener. This song has twins like vibe to it to Andy’s first solo record ” The Shadow Side” the song ” Homecoming King”. The ying yang mentality of each of the songs complimenting each other is something unique that Andy holds as a tried and true lyricist. The story making behind each lyric holds true of the background of his parental influence of music his parents raised him on. I praise Amy for bringing Bruce Springsteen into Andy’s life. I see a lot of it Bruce’s influence lyrically in “The Shadow Side” and “The Ghost of Ohio”. I also see other amazing influences as well such as Billy Idol, The Misfits, Alkaline Trio, and so forth in Andy’s solo and BVB as well.
Ghost of Ohio to me rings true that everyone is trying to find there way into life with the daily struggles and hardships we all go through. But in the end we find a silver lining or we over come our struggles. We find success in whatever we find we are good at whether it would be art, music, writing, science, medical, and so forth no matter where we base our roots in life. Andy’s lyrical story telling is very inspiring and cathartic to ones soul and mind. The music elitists and mass music critics that turn a blind eye on Andy’s writing abilities are truly dingbats. The dude has a beautiful way of pouring his heart out on paper. Such a wonderful musician of his time. Certainly Ghost of Ohio is one of his greatest songs from a lyrically standpoint.
Whatever way you interpret Ghost of Ohio in whatever regards you do. You definitely deserve to have it that way. Music is such a universal tool at our disposal to keep us sane through this panademic. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s song of the day. Thank you so much for reading. It means a lot. Each and every one of your guys support is very much appreciated.
