Aside from being one of the most known sports entertainers and professional wrestlers of the modern era, Chris Jericho is also the lead singer of the ever-popular rock group Fozzy where his band’s most recent album, ‘Judas’, saw its title track spend 26 weeks on the Mainstream Rock chart and peaking at number nine
During a recent conversation on Grunge and Rock, Jericho, along with SiriusXM Radio personality Eddie Trunk discuss the future of the Foo Fighters following the death of the group’s drummer, Taylor Hawkins. This Foo Fighters member recently posted an emotional tribute photo. Hawkins assed away at the age of 50. He breathed his last at the Four Seasons Casa Medina hotel in Bogota, Colombia
Trunk: I don’t think for a minute that the Foo Fighters end, you think there is a chance that the group ends because Taylor [Hawkins] passed away?
Jericho: Hey, ask Robert Plant if he’s ever gonna do Led Zeppelin again? That’s all I gotta say about that.
Trunk: Yeah but the difference is, and I don’t mean this with any disrespect to Foo Fighters who all contribute greatly. But we all know Foo Fighters is Dave Grohl’s thing, Dave Grohl is still there and there was a drummer before Taylor [Hawkins] if you want to get technical.
Jericho: I don’t want to have a debate on the Foo Fighters but those guys were best buds, two peas in a pod, I’m not saying Dave Grohl is going to retire from music but I think he’s going to go into a Sammy Hagar territory and just be Dave Grohl, which could also headline festivals and stadiums. As I said, I haven’t spoken to Dave but it would seem that’s a pretty big loss just to bounce back from and get somebody else in on drums when that was your best friend and partner in so many different ways.
