FOZZY
Fozzy
(Rykopalm / Outside)

'I meant to do that.' It's what you said when you fell on your face as a kid, and it's the story ex-Winnipeg rassler Chris Jericho sticks to on the awful debut of his heavy metal band Fozzy. Rather than 'fess up to the truth about this CD -- a set of hamfisted, pointless covers of classics like Stay Hungry, Live Wire and Blackout, along with two forgettable originals -- Jericho (calling himself, heaven help us, Moongoose McQueen, and backed by Stuck Mojo) spins a Spinal Tap-ish tale about how Fozzy are a metal outfit that got stuck for decades in Japan and actually wrote all these songs that others made famous. Oh sure, that's just like Spinal Tap. Except that Spinal Tap a) wrote all their songs; b) could actually sing (unlike Jericho -- oops, Moongoose -- who couldn't carry a tune in his trunks); and c) were funny. If you buy Fozzy, the only joke's on you.
