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).

    biggest a..hole(s) I've ever seen on stage. I've seen them live in Melbourne/Australia. I`ve rarely seen a crowd this active then there, but he did not give an extra song. The only 'mistake' of the crowd was not shouting "one more song" (because aussies just don't do that). I'm sorry, fozzy, that was sure not your brightest moment on stage... (And yes, they have been the head show of that evening, and they seem to have quite a strong base in melb. That makes it a lot more un-understandable why they did not give an encore...)

    Whatever... I'm writing a BOOK about my DECADE of traveling, concert & touring experiences. (My time around these guys will be one chapter in it) What do you do, exactly? What do you need to meet your "credibility credentials"?

    how can the worst song on the album be the most heard? :( The song is not really bad but sure the worst on a pretty good album.

    Solid would've been a 7.5 out of 10... not a perfect 10... the album deserves a ZERO... 0/10! The last 3 albums are abysmal... Jericho's a nice-guy but he CANNOT SING (I worked for the band briefly and listened to them rehearse for hours...) Rich Ward has completely LOST whatever it was that once made him a BAD-MAN with the guitar.
