FOZZY's CHRIS JERICHO On The Definition Of Success

November 13, 2014

Wall Of Sound recently conducted an interview with FOZZY singer and WWE wrestling superstar Chris Jericho. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

Asked how he would personally define success, Jericho said: "I think the number one and most important rule of success is loving what you do." He continued: "You can listen to a critic tell you that something is great or listen to a critic tell you that something is bad, but the only person that really can tell me if it was good or bad is me. I know it inside my heart.

"When I walk out off a stage or out of the ring, what do I feel? Do I feel that elation of, like, 'Oh my God! That was so killer. That was great!' Or do you feel kind of that it could have been better? Or do you feel, 'It wasn't very good'?

"To me, the definition of success is enjoying what you're doing, loving what you're doing and still getting that thrill of putting on a great performance and knowing, like, 'Wow!'

"One time out of ten, or one time out of twenty, all of the fruit will line up and you hit the jackpot. And you hit that jackpot, it's the best feeling in the world. And that's what it's all about.

"Anything that I do, there's gonna be good shows, bad shows, shows that could have been better, and those elusive shows that are, like, the absolute best, [where you feel] 'That was exactly what I've been doing this for.' So when you get that response and you get that vibe, that makes it all worthwhile."

FOZZY will embark on "The Cinderblock Party Tour" in November in support of its new single and title track of its most recent album, "Do You Wanna Start A War". The trek, which will kick off on November 20 in Flint, Michigan, will feature special guests TEXAS HIPPIE COALITION and SHAMAN'S HARVEST.

FOZZY's latest album, "Do You Wanna Start A War", sold around 5,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 54 on the Billboard 200 chart.
