Childhood Hero – Oz Fox
There is nothing in the world like meeting one of your childhood heroes! I had that privilege this weekend to spend several days with OZ FOX (guitarist for Stryper). I remember growing up listening to all kinds of heavy music – from Motley Crew to Black Sabbath to yes even Ozzie – but then I was introduced to this Christian Metal Band called Stryper. They sang about Jesus and had a positive message in their music. They helped shaped me in those early years of life. How? They lived outside the box – and that’s where I call home too.
But meeting Oz this weekend and spending time with his beautiful bride – Annie Lobert (found of Hookers for Jesus) – I discovered a man of great love for God, humility, respect, passion for family, lover of music, and a belief in the church of Jesus! Oz and Annie are the real deal!
So today I am privileged to call Oz something more than a distant hero, but a new friend!
