Kuarantine (Fozzy, Etc.) Team Up With Bruce Kulick For Cover Of KISS’ “Heart Of Chrome”

Kuarantine, the KISS tribute band featuring Chris Jericho (Fozzy), P.J. Farley (Trixter), Joe McGinness (Klassik ’78), and Kent Slucher (Luke Bryan), have teamed up with Bruce Kulick for a cover of KISS’ “Heart Of Chrome.” You can check that out below:

Jericho told Revolver the following:

“We were pleasantly surprised and stoked to hear the huge reaction to our first single ‘No, No, No’! So what can a band that specializes in non-make-up KISS songs do to top that reaction with their second single? How about tap the guitar player from that era to join the band? That’s exactly what we did when we asked former KISS axeman Bruce Kulick to join us on ‘Heart of Chrome’ — and he crushed it!

‘Chrome,’ from the 1992 album Revenge, is one of the most underrated songs in the KISS Katalog and one of the hardest to sing! Even Paul Stanley himself said to me, ‘If you can sing that song in the original key, with the original melody, then you have completed quite the task.’ So that’s what the band and I did! Plus, having Kulick onboard to lend his signature tone and soloing style, made the tune even more rifftastic! See kids, there’s always a positive in every negative: Only in a pandemic can you form a KISS cover band with the ex-guitar player from KISS and end up with a kickass song!”

Kuarantine (Fozzy, Etc.) Share Video For Cover Of KISS’ “No, No, No”

Kuarantine, the KISS tribute band featuring Chris Jericho (Fozzy), P.J. Farley (Trixter), Joe McGinness, and Kent Slucher, have premiered a new video for their cover of KISS’ “No, No, No.” You can check that out below. Jericho told Spin the following about the project:

“This is how you can form a band in the COVID era. You have four badasses singing and playing this era of rock and roll from one of the biggest bands in the world that no one ever focuses on this part of their career. It’s cool and organic. Had there been no COVID, this never would have taken place. And gives a little shot in the arm to a scene that’s a little bit stagnant because of what’s going on worldwide.”

Chris Jericho (Fozzy) Releases Cover Of The Kinks’ “Father Christmas”

Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho & The Christmas Helves have released a cover of The Kinks’ “Father Christmas.” Jericho said the following about that:

“I’ve always wanted to do a Christmas song, as it’s guaranteed annual airplay (and if I hear ‘Wonderful Christmas Time’ one more time, I’m gonna stuff myself down a chimney), so I put together the musical assassins known as ‘The Christmas Helves’ and banged out this sugarplum version of my favorite Kinks tune! Best part is all proceeds will be donated to JDRF to fight Juvenile Diabetes! So, grab your eggnog and frankincense…whatever the hell that is…and rock out with your Santa sack out!”

Man Barges Onto Fozzy’s Tour Bus & Injures Drum Tech, Gets Pummeled By Chris Jericho

Following Fozzy’s recent show in Regina, Saskatchewan, a man barged onto the band’s tour bus and ended up pulling their drum tech, Jack Slade, off the vehicle, breaking his collarbone in the process. After the incident, frontman and pro-wrestler Chris Jericho chased the intruder down to pummel him.

The story was reported by Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer, who had the following to say:

“There was apparently a kid helped play or did some drum work on the show and the kid wanted to get onto the tour bus or get autographs or something. I guess they don’t want him on and he ends up somehow sneaking on and one of the guys on the crew saw him and they got into a fight and the guy actually ended up with a broken collarbone because of the fight and then he gets kicked out.”

“So Jericho gives him a spear and he’s pounding on him from the mounted position. The people who were there watching this tried to hold the guy until the police arrived and then he got away. The police ended up catching him.”

An eyewitness also discussed things further with Loudwire:

“The guy was on meth and barged on the bus for an autograph. He was told he couldn’t just come onto the bus and to wait outside as Chris’ family was on the bus. He wouldn’t leave and took a swing at Jack Slade. He pulled Jack off the bus and Jack landed hard and broke his collarbone.”

“Chris chased the guy and tackled him. Then security came and called the cops. The guy ran away and jumped a fence and got caught on some barbed wire. Then got in his car and hit a security guard. Cops got him and charged him. He will be going to jail for sure.”
