“You recognise my fandom and you value it in the way that I recognise you as people who have personally influenced me”
Asya Draganova is a Bulgarian Lecturer working in Birmingham. As a life long Sabbath fan who gained her music taste from her Father and a researcher specialising in music cultures, Asya regards her music fandom as an important part of her identity.
In Part 1 of Asya’s Oral History we listen to the roots of her story. How she saw Sabbath in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2005, the camaraderie in the ticket queues, and one special moment she shared with the band.
