Biography

San Antonio TX, United States (1999 – present)

Fozzy is a heavy metal band, fronted by professional wrestler Chris Jericho , and also including musicians from Stuck Mojo and on their recent album, guests from other established metal bands.

Fozzy started out as Fozzy Osbourne, a cover band assembled by Rich Ward from whatever musicians he could find on a given week.

In 1999, Jericho met Ward in San Antonio after a wrestling show, and was invited to play with the band. Jericho sat in on a few sessions, but did not plan to play with them permanently.

In 2000, unable to wrestle for four months due to a severe ankle injury, Jericho re-joined the band and became its front man (under the persona of “Moongoose McQueen”), and the band went on tour. Later that year, the band shortened its name to Fozzy, and adopting the satirical back-story that the songs they covered were originally their own, but were stolen from them by other bands.

In 2002, Fozzy played on an edition of WWE Sunday Night Heat (filmed at WWE New York), and played “To Kill A Stranger” on WWE Raw is War (followed by an angle involving Ric Flair beating up Jericho). The video of “To Kill a Stranger” aired on WWE Confidential.

Fozzy’s first two albums, Fozzy and Happenstance, consisted mostly of cover songs. Their third album, All That Remains, consisted entirely of original tracks (though a few of the songs were recorded by Ward’s old side project Sick Speed).

    I tell anyone that has a doubt that Fozzy are a legimate band to listen to 'Wormwood'. They then shut up.

    I honestly think this is one of the worst bands I've ever had to listen to - had to bear their soppy performance twice, firstly when they were supporting SOiL last year and then last night before Drowning Pool - I just don't want to hear about fucking Fozzy anymore in my life.

    After 23 years in wrestling I'm glad for Chris he's able to pursue his love of music more "fulltime" than before. He's deserved it, as a wrestling fan of course I miss him on TV but he's a man just like anyone else and he has a dream, a talent, and a love for his music and to that I salute him and wish him nothing but success on stage and just like he had in the ring.

    Chris should dedicate himself to professional wrestling rather than metal.
