I first heard of the rock band Fozzy years ago when I was a music buyer at the Virgin Megastore here in Orlando. I was already a fan of Chris Jericho from his day job as a WWE wrestler, but now he was fronting a hard rock band? Always open-minded, I popped in their debut cd and loved what I heard.
Fast forward more than a decade, and I was invited to check out Fozzy live when they played the House of Blues Orlando on December 11. Of course, I said “Yes!”
Heavy rock band Fozzy returns to Orlando with a show at the House of Blues on Thursday, December 11.
Fozzy is led by vocalist Chris Jericho, a former WWE champion wrestler, and guitarist Rich Ward, formerly of the band Stuck Mojo, along with band members Jeff Rouse, Frank Fontsere, and Billy Grey. The group has six albums to their credit.
The most recent release, Do You Wanna Start a War, made its debut on the Billboard charts at #54, the band’s highest charting debut ever. The album also charted #20 Rock Albums, #10 Independent Albums, #9 Hard Rock Albums and #1 on the iTunes rock charts in 5 different countries.
