Fozzy’s Chris Jericho Goes Off the Record: Library Firecrackers + More
'Off the Record' is a video series where we ask artists questions about anything with one exception: No questions about music. This is your chance to peer behind the music and into the daily lives these artists lead outside of their profession. Topics range from good eats (last meals, ice cream) to mischief (dumbest thing done in the name of fun, getting sent to the principal's office) to getting real (biggest fear, worst injury).
For the launch of the new Loudwire video series Off the Record, we doubled dipped at the 2019 Inkcarceration festival in Mansfield, Ohio and landed a rock singer and world-renowned wrestling superstar — Fozzy and AEW's Chris Jericho.
Jericho is a hero to so many around the globe, and when we asked him to name his favorite hero, we demanded that he pick a fictional hero. It was adventurer Indiana Jones who caught his attention as a kid, inspiring him to pursue archaeology. That idea didn't last long though as he learned the field of study was not as glamorous as it appeared and was, instead, "super boring."
Tables, ladders nor chairs strike fear into the heart of the hulking wrestler. Nope, it's spiders that get him, just like everyone else. Classic elephant and mouse situation.
As you watch through the rest of the video at the top of the page, you'll hear a college tale of getting sent to the dean's office, learn what his favorite Disney movie is and discover what the dumbest thing Chris Jericho has done for fun. Hint: It involves a quiet reading place and celebratory explosives.
Fozzy have set their sights on a 2020 album and you can hear the new song "Nowhere to Hide" here.
