Nope, Fozzy didn't do anything for me. It sounded like Bargin Bin 'metal' music. Maybe that stuff sells up in Canada, and I just don't get it. The song sounded like Jericho cutting a strange promo with generic rock in the background. Sorry Jericho your CD won't be in my collection.

I thought that the song itself was pretty good, but I think that they should have probably checked their levels better, and Jericho should have tuned up his voice a bit before they preformed.

I won't be getting the CD either, but then, I don't listen to anything that's remotely mainstream.

Hmmmm.... If we'e talking canadian rock bands, I'd rather listen to Nickelback. Chad Kroeger can sing Jericho under a table.

I think last night was just a bad night for Fozzy. When they were on Sunday Night Heat last year, they were a whole lot better.

Well, I'd probably take Fozzy over Nickelback, but that's more a reflection on Nickelback than anything else.

I agree about the bad night. Plus, I bet they weren't using their usual equipment (at least speakers, mics and monitors). They were using cheap stuff Flair could trash.

I own the CD and I like it. Don't care if they were bad (in my mind vocals were the only thing really off anyways). I never base my listening pleasures based on live performance, though, either. Many rock and rap acts simply sound better in the studio, all there is to it. I wouldn't own any punk rock cd's based on live performances (Ramones and Sex Pistols, not the new teen angst crybabies) or live performance cd. I own the cd. It rocks. I guess that's all that matters. Plus, you could own the cd off of Kazaa on your hardrive if you really don't wanna' shell out the fifteen bucks it takes to buy it.

That wasn't cheap equipment. I promise you that.

I dunno - I'm in a band and those monitors looked on the cheap side to me. Couldn't see the guitar enough before he smashed it (couldn't even see if it was one that anyone had used). Their speakers - some of them might even have been fake. I notice he didn't touch the drums, a natural target.

I still don't understand what they were trying to accomplish last night by having Fozzy play. There was this pig guy, and then Jericho couldn't sing, and the crowd booed because Jericho was lead vocalist, and he's a heel. So how does having Fozzy on as a heel band help sell records? Or did they just have Jericho ham it up because they knew the band would get booed regardless? The whole thing left me scratching my head, though some thoughts did come to mind:

1. I believe Flair went to pick up a giant light and then had to drop it because it was really hot. That made me laugh.

2. Flair wouldn't have done nearly as much damage if Fozzy had Test doing security detail.

3. Having Flair come out and destroy everything made me wonder if CRZ would say, "And out comes Flair to take care of those no good long-haireds and their communist devil music."

I don't think Fozzy is as much a reflection of the Canadian Music scene as it is a reflection of Jericho's musical tastes. I'd have to think that if any other uppercard talent had a *serious* music project, he'd get the opportunity to showcase it as well.

Plus Chad was killer in ECW and now in NWA. Sorry, once Nickelback was mentioned, I had to go with the cheap Jerry Lynn look alike comment.

I agree, what the heck was the point of Fozzy?

Here's an interesting fact, a year or so back, the last time Fozzy released something, Chris Jericho (Who was Face at the time) wasn't part of the group, it was Moongoose McQueen who was the Frontman (Remember they made a big deal out of talking about Jericho and McQueen as if they weren't the same guy).
Moongoose was a real piece of work. I don't know if he appeared in the US, but he did a few Appearances on Canadian Talk Shows, including TSNs Off the Record, where he traded insults with singer Pink (His final comment to her was "I loved you when you were with the Group "Dee-lite").
Of course now that Y2J is a heel, he appears as himself, so maybe they are trying to promote a bad boy image for the Band?
All I know for sure is Jericho better hope this wrestling gig is giving him some financial security.

But as wrestling goes, Flair and Chris had already gotten to it, so the final attack didn't require the band (Unless Flair wants to claim that Jericho interrupted Flair's big moment, so Flair interrupted Jericho's) and as for the band..I agree overall it didn't sound good (levels? TIming? I don't know, it blew) but I can recall watching a lot of other bands or singers I enjoy perform live and just sound horrible.

Up till now though, if I'm not mistaken, they've mostly been an 80's metal cover band. This is their first cd of original material (right?), and I'm wondering if Jericho *breaking kayfabe* has more to do with that than being a heel or a face or whatnot.
