    At what point that he decided he was going to pen the follow-up to “A Lion’s Tale” (in the form of “Undisputed”): “It’s quite obvious when you read ‘A Lion’s Tale’ that there would be a sequel. I ended off on a ‘cliffhanger’ if you were watching a movie. I had no guarantees that there would be a second book, but I wanted to write it, and I actually got the deal for the second book just as the first book was released.”

    His response to the rumors that his return to the WWE is imminent after his recent comments to Fanhouse.com, his reaction to those that may believe that he’s the mastermind behind WWE’s 2.21.11 videos, and why he will not spoil the surprise if/when he does return to the WWE: “What I said was misquoted. It’s not like I’m 90 percent ready to return to the WWE, or that it’s 90 perent done. There’s a contract that’s on the table and that has been on the table since September.

    “It’s not done because it’s not signed, but because there’s other things going on. I could be returning tomorrow, I could be returning two or three years from now. I don’t know. People are asking when I’m coming back, and like anything else, if I was coming back and if I was the 2.21.11 guy, I wouldn’t tell anybody. All these things that are talked about have been talked about and are in the works, but as far as when they are going to happen, only I know, and I won’t say it until it happens, because it ruins the surprise.”

    Why, despite the possibilities of a WWE return, he feels that he has no “unfinished business” left in the world of professional wrestling and sports-entertainment: “I have no unfinished business. That’s the difference between Jericho 2011 and Jericho 2005. When I left in 2005, I was kind of disenchanted with the wrestling business and wasn’t digging what was going on in, and had to find myself, and explore certain opportunities. I did that. This time, my contract expired, and I had a lot of other stuff in the works that I wanted to do, but I still love wrestling. I definitely left at the top of my game, and I think the last three years of my career was the best three years of my career.”

  • Fozzy Announces Australian Tour Dates in December

    Posted on September 20th, 2010 admin 1 comment

    WWE star Chris Jericho’s band Fozzy has announced the following:

    FOZZY — the band featuring WWE wrestling superstar Chris Jericho and STUCK MOJO mastermind Rich “The Duke” Ward — will return to Australia for the first time since 2005 in December.

    Comments Jericho: “Our fans in Australia are some of the best FOZZY fans in the world and we heard your demands, so we are coming back and we are looking forward to tearing the house down with each and every one of you crazy bastards this December!”

    The dates are as follows:

    Dec. 02 – The Hi Fi – Melbourne, AUS
    Dec. 03 – The Factory – Sydney, AUS
    Dec. 05 – The Hi Fi – Brisbane, AUS

    Tickets go on sale on Friday, September 24.

    “Let The Madness Begin”, the new video from FOZZY, can be viewed below. The clip was filmed during the group’s 2010 U.K. and U.S. dates.

    “Let The Madness Begin” comes off FOZZY’s new album, “Chasing The Grail”, which sold around 2,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 6 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

    In a recent interview with Ultimate-Guitar.com, Ward stated about “Let The Madness Begin”, “[That particular track] is all about the balance between a really good, classic melody and a great, classic rock riff. That was our focus for the whole record, but I think ‘Let The Madness Begin’ is probably the one song on the album where I think that balance is best.

    “Sometimes when you’re trying to write a heavy album, you find that sometimes you’ll end up compromising the melody for the riff, because obviously, the riff is so important for the drum part. On some rock albums, the vocals become the focus, and then the music takes a backseat. We tried to find that fine line where the music was important and the melody was important. We treated them as equals, and I think ‘Let The Madness Begin’ was that perfect balance between hard rock melodic vocals and a big metal riff.”

    “Chasing the Grail” was released on January 26 via Australia’s Riot! Entertainment.
