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.
The 2012 Rock Vegas fest already boasts a massive lineup that includes headliners Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Shinedown and Godsmack. Now, the two-day event, which takes place Sept. 28 and 29 at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, just got a little more rockin' as a few more big names have been added to the bill.
With a ridiculously jam-packed day that featured 14 bands on three different stages spread out over 10 nonstop hours of music, the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival offers up one heck of a music equation resulting in only one thing - an overdose of rock.

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.
Fozzy fans proved their loyalty as they fought tooth and nail to lift the band’s latest single, ‘Sandpaper’ featuring M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, to five consecutive Cage Match victories. With this accomplishment, Fozzy and their tune ‘Sandpaper’ enter the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame.
