Rock afficiando Chris Jericho & Fozzy comes to Houston on March 1


There is no argument that Chris Jericho is a bona fide star. In fact, he has probably become a household name at this point. Jericho has been on top of the professional wrestling world for years and now his band Fozzy is making a legitimate run as a major player in the rock world.

Jericho alongside bandmates Rich Ward (guitar/vocals), Billy Grey (guitars), Paul DiLeo (bass) and Frank Fonstere (drums) are back in North America this week for their “Judas Rising Tour” that stops in Houston for an all ages show on Thursday, March 1 at Scout Bar, which is one of the best places around to see a rock show.

Fozzy will be supporting the release of their critically acclaimed record Judas. The debut track, also titled "Judas," has given the band a true identity. It became a Top 5 hit on active radio and spent five weeks at No. 1 on the "Big Uns Countdown" on SiriusXM's Octane channel. The video for "Judas" is nearing 16 million view on YouTube.

I spent 15 minutes or so on the telephone with Jericho talking all things Fozzy. Check out the audio interview below.
