The Fall of arthur oberman,
Born Arthur Q oberman in Hollywood, CA in April of 1984, to Mr. and Mrs. Oberman, their 2nd child.
Even in his early years arthur showed tremendous musical talent. Learning guitar basics at age five the bass at 6 and even the drums at age 8. Though it was age 14 that his light truly turned on for after his voice broke that the star was born.
Discovering his inner voice Arthur went and easily dominated local talent shows and contests.
As his trophy case grew so did pride and reputation. Always being the charitable type any free time was spent in soup kitchens and volunteering at fund raiser performances.
Time was good but like many talented artist tragedy would soon strike.
In the summer of 2004, Arthur`s aunt and muse for all his talent died in a bizarre car crash.
Devastated by the incident it seemed that all light and soul of this young man faded into darkness, and was laid to rest with his dear aunt.
Becoming increasingly troubled and erratic in behavior, Arthur dabbled in drugs and gang activity unable to find solace and acceptance in the incident his behavior worsened starting fights smoking multiple packs of cigarets a day and abusing pain killers among other things.
this lead to a few over doses and and hospitalizations, arthur`s parents forces him into rehab and there he stays recovering and waiting for his musical return to the stage.
LOAD OF RUBBISH I SAY CONSIDERING THIS SHOW WAS SUPPOSE TO BE ABOUT ME AND SUCH.
SO YEAH MOST OF IT IS TRUE BUT WHAT REALLY HAPPENED IS THAT I BROKE OUT OF REHAB LOOKING FOR A FIX A PARTY AND A QUICK LAY. BUT LIFE ISN’T ALL FUN AND GAMES WHEN YA SUPPOSE FRIENDS THINK U CAN SNORT A TRUCK LOAD OF COCAINE JUST BECAUSE YOU USE TO BE FAMOUS.
SO THERE I WAS DOING ALL KINDS OF UPPERS AND DOWNERS AND FOLLOWING SUIT WITH VODKA AND WHAT MIGHT A BEEN ACTUAL GASOLINE AND SLAMMING EVER GIRL THAT SPREAD EAGLE FOR A SECOND FUN LAST COUPLE OF HOURS IF YOU ASK ME. BUT IN THE END I WAS LAYING IN THE GUTTER VOMITING BLOOD AND GOD KNOWS WHAT ELSE THINKING I WAS GONNA DIE NOT BOTHER TO BEG GOD LIKE REST OF FOLKS I KNEW IT WAS MY FAULT AND I WANST CHANGING.
THATS WHEN THIS BEYOND BEAUTIFUL LADY THAT I THOUGHT WAS LOST GROUPIE AT FIRST SAID THAT SHE CAME TO MAKE IT ALL BETTER. SHE SAID SHE WOULD SAVE ME AND PRESERVE MY VOICE FOR ALL ETERNITY AND SUCH, ALL I WOULD HAVE TO DO IS BE IN HERE SERVICE FOR COUPLE OF YEARS. AND I REPLIED SURE IF IM NOT DEAD BY MORNING AND PARTYING WITH THE DEVIL WE HAS A DEAL.
SO LONG STORY SHORT SHE WAS A VAMPIRE WITH LOVE OF MUSIC SAVED MY VOICE AND I BECAME HER AID SHE WAS BIG IN THE SOUND BIZ AND TOOK GOOD NOTES ABOUT EVERY THING UNTIL SHE GOT BORED WITH ME AND SUCH AND LET ME LOOSE UPON THE WORLD.
NOT WANTING THE FOLKS TO KNOW THAT I BECAME PARTIAL TO BLOODY MARYS AND DEVELOPED AN ALLERGY TO THE SUN, I CHANGED MY WARDROBE AND MY NAME, CALLED MY SELF CLETUS VAN DAMN AND STARTED A BAND
AND THE REST IS HISTORY. AND TO COME TO THE REALIZATION THAT MY VOICE WILL CARRY ON FOR ALL ETERNITY. BUT I HAVE TO WATCH WHAT I EAT I KILLED MY SELF ONCE NOT AGAIN.
