My Role Model Essay

1145 words - 5 pages

My role model is Andy Biersack {Age 22}, lead singer of Black Veil Brides. The meaning behind the names is based on a religious term, Catholics use. The term is when a nun marries into a church, she wears a black veil, and Andy liked the fact that giving everything you have, up for something you love. So the name Black Veil Brides is mainly about him giving everything up for what he loved to do no matter how hard it was.
Biography:
Early life:
Andrew Dennis Biersack or {Andy Biersack} was born to Chris and Amy Biersack on December 26, 1990, in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was naturally born with Blonde hair and blue eyes but later dyed his hair black in Middle School.
Andy was raised in a Catholic home, and that was his religion. He went to a Catholic Elementary school as a child. His parents new when he got older that is style was different.
He was severely bullied in School for the way he looked and the music he was into. He had been called things such as “Faggot” and “Emo”. This life experience is re-enacted in the song and video “Knives and Pens.” The song was about how when you are depressed or going through bullying, you can either choose to harm yourself { knives} or you can choose to pick up a pen and draw, write stories or emotions, write music, or etc.. To escape all the pain and hate. Andy’s songs have helped millions of people with the messages portrayed through his songs.

Religion:
Like I said before, he was raised as a Catholic, but he is now an atheist. In an interview he quoted
"I’m not a religious person but I grew up in a religious family. I went to the funeral for my grandfather, a person that I love very much, and everyone is speaking about how he went to Heaven and how he’s in Heaven. I always fight with that, because I would love nothing more to believe that my grandfather is in the clouds playing Xbox 460 or whatever awesome stuff they have up in Heaven, but I can’t."-Andy Biersack
He still uses a lot of biblical/ religious references in his songs. I don’t know what the other members of the band believe in, but they are not categorized as a religious/ Christian band.
Middle and High School:
At age 14, Andy and a few of his friends started a band called “Biersack”, and they only played one gig. The band does no longer exist, but it did grow into Black Veil Brides.
Andy went to Cincinnati’s school for creative and performing arts, {in high school}. He majored in subjects like drama and vocal music.
Andy later dropped out of high school at age 17, and moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue and get a start on his music career.
His stage name {at the time} was “Andy Sixx”. In 2011 he had decided that he would go by his real name, and his stage name, became “Andy Biersack”, but still accepts the nickname.
BVB Currently:
Andy has been in BVB since 2004, but is the only founding member left. The members of the band are Ashley Purdy- Bass guitar and Background vocals ...
