Metallica and Anthrax are not only part of 'The Big 4,' but also came up through the metal ranks at the same time. Their shared history dates back to the '80s, and sadly Anthrax were there with Metallica during the most traumatic and tragic event of their early career -- the death of bassist Cliff Burton.
With the Beatles 50th anniversary celebration of their first U.S. performance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show' just passing, there's been a lot of focus on the band. Their influence is unquestioned in the world of music, and recently Anthrax's Charlie Benante and The Winery Dogs' Mike Portnoy spoke with Fozzy frontman and professional wrestler Chris Jericho on his 'Talk Is Jericho' podcast about their first meetings with members of the Beatles.
We recently caught up with Fozzy singer and WWE wrestling legend Chris Jericho before a recent taping of 'Monday Night Raw' in Brooklyn, N.Y. We spoke with Jericho about both wrestling and his plans for Fozzy in the near future, but we were also given a close-up look at Jericho's new tattoos which pay tribute to Iron Maiden, Metallica, Helloween and the Beatles.
Lord knows that many of the musicians taking part in this year's Revolver Golden Gods have done their fair share of interviews overs the years, but in the commercial for the 2013 ceremony, they get to experience life from the other side of the microphone in what amounts to the world's most metal press conference.
VH1 Classic is bringing back "National Metal Day" for its second year, as the network will deliver a daylong celebration of all things metal on Nov. 11 (aka 11-11, as in 'Turn It Up to 11").
Led by vocalist Chris Jericho, rock band Fozzy are currently shredding their way through the United States on the 2012 Uproar Festival tour. Having shared the stage with Shinedown, Godsmack + many more since the tour's kickoff on Aug. 17, Jericho paid us a visit on one of his very few days off for an exclusive interview.
Chris Jericho boasts a career that only he, and he alone, has been able to accomplish. Along with an incredibly decorated tenure with WWE, a job that comes with a notoriously grueling schedule, Jericho serves as the vocalist for hard rock band Fozzy. Balancing two of the most demanding jobs on the planet, on top of being a father, is a mixture that would quickly burn out the average person, but Jericho takes on the challenge full-force while keeping his fans strongly in tact.
Get lost, Billy Cosby, metal is invading your territory with the three-night event, 'Rockstars Say the Funniest Things.' Billed as 'a spoken word performance series,' 'Rockstars Say the Funniest Things' will feature musical heavyweights Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver), Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Chris Jericho (Fozzy, WWE Wrestler).
