You know, a lot of people think Danny’s a bad guy, but to be honest, I don’t think he is. This is why he’s my hero.
I know he hasn’t had the best past. He’s tangoed with drugs and alcohol. He’s admitted it. It takes a big person to admit the past, and bring it back up. Well, technically, his past isn’t buried yet because certain people like to remind us all the time. He’s better now, and he’s dedicated to his music. Danny has so many people to support him, and let’s not forget that we, the fans, are supporting him too. He has his solo project, his new band, his photography, and he’s got Asking Alexandria. Hell, he has enough talent for all four of those projects.
The drunk Danny was quite scary from what I’ve seen. Seattle wasn’t the best of days for him. That was scary. I don’t know how he was even able to walk, let alone preform a show. I’m just glad he’s better. Because the drunk in that video isn’t, and never will be, my hero. When the crowd started chanting “Drunk piece of shit” my heart literally fell into a million pieces. I can’t even watch that video, because, in all honesty.. I cry.
The sober Danny is my hero. He has his head on straight, and he’s going in the right direction. He’s my inspiration because he over came his past and the obstacles in his way. Only a fighter, a strong person, can do that.
PS. if the past fans stopped supporting Asking Alexandria because of Danny’s choices, they weren’t fans to begin with. Because let’s face it, that’s when the band needed their support.
Danny probably doesn’t need a teenager to defend him let’s face it, he’s 21. But I will, because I know he is a good person. I don’t know exactly what he thinks, but I’m thinking from my perspective, my point of view. These are my opinions and thoughts.
“I’ve relied on drugs and drinking to feel alive. I can’t do that anymore. Tonight was evidence it’s not me. I can’t do it anymore. I love you all and I’m so sorry I’ve let you all down. Hopefully I grow to have some sort of compassion to myself. I live for self-destruction and that’s wrong. Nothing changes when you’re killing yourself with poison. I love you all and I hope you can forgive me.
I am officially quitting drugs and drinking, here and now. I want to clean up and sort my fucking life out. I’ll never stop hating myself until I stop killing myself.”
