Chris Jericho is a man of many talents. He’s a
three-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion. He’s the author of four
autobiographies. He’s a regular on American reality TV, having appeared in such
programmes as Dancing with the Stars
and Celebrity Duets. He hosts the
successful podcast Talk Is Jericho. He’s
even currently preparing his first-ever cruise – the Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Rager
at Sea – which is due to set sail in October.
However, for the purposes of this interview, we are going to
focus on Chris Jericho the musician. Since 1999, the multitasking maverick has
been the frontman of the hard-rockin’ quintet Fozzy, who have spent the last
twenty years evolving from a small-time cover band to a tour-de-force that’s made several dents in the US charts.
In 2018, the group – self-described as sounding like a
bastard child between Metallica and Journey – is riding the momentum of their
seventh album, Judas. By boasting such
hugely popular singles as “Painless”, “Burn Me Out” and “Judas”, the disc is
the next chapter in Fozzy’s continuing climb to rock ‘n’ roll heroism.
