FOZZY Singer CHRIS JERICHO Talks About Movie Projects; Video Available

September 29, 2007

Horror Junk recently conducted a short interview with Chris Jericho — lead vocalist for FOZZY and former WWE wrestling champion — about his roles in the horror movies "Android Apocalypse" and "Albino Farm". Watch the two-minute clip below.

In a July 2007 interview with The Baltimore Sun, Jericho had the following to say about FOZZY's current status: "We did a lot of touring last year in the UK. We've actually made a good name for ourselves in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. We toured there five times between February '05 and February '06. We also toured Australia, Germany, Canada and a little bit in the States. We did kind of a world tour. Once you do that, in order to tour again, you have to work on a new record. That's where we're at right now. I've already written all the lyrics for it and the guys in the band are starting to come up with some riffs. But they [some of the other members of FOZZY] have another band called STUCK MOJO that they've been touring with all summer, so it goes back and forth. It's kind of on hold just until we can get time together to start working on a new record. We're very fortunate. The last record did a lot for us and it was cool because we got to headline at a lot of big places, especially in England. We played at the London Astoria three times and sold it out all three times, and that's a famous venue. THE BEATLES played the Astoria. IRON MAIDEN played the Astoria. Some really big bands still play there to this day, so just to go to places like that and sell them out and tear the house down, it's like you put a little checkmark by that knowing that, 'Well, we did that.' It's cool to know that you've been vindicated and know that the band got big enough to do that basically on our own with not a lot of help from anybody."

Chris Jericho will release "A Lion's Tale: Around The World In Spandex" (Grand Central Publishing) on October 25, 2007. The autobiography (book cover) will focus on the early days of his wrestling and performing career.
