The New York Times bestselling author, wrestler, metalhead, and over-the-top media personality, FOZZY singer Chris Jericho shares his latest wild and hilarious adventures in "The Best In The World: At What I Have No Idea", out via Gotham on October 14.
World Wrestling Entertainment has named Chris Jericho as one of the top ten wrestlers — and one of the top five talkers — of all time. Certainly, the past six years have been spectacular for Jericho. After a sluggish return from his 2005 sabbatical, Jericho found new inspiration in watching "No Country For Old Men" and completely reinvented his character — ultimately going on to capture three world WWE titles.
"The Best In The World" chronicles some of the incredible and often preposterous highlights of Jericho's recent career, including:
* How Mickey Rourke challenged Jericho to a match, then backed out
* Jericho's award-winning feud with Shawn Michaels, which culminated in Jericho knocking out Michael's wife in the ring…. for real
* His escape from the 2010 Icelandic volcanoes in a broken-down, European rental-car shuttle
* His encounters with Bob Barker, Ozzy Osbourne, METALLICA, Al Sharpton, and Mike Tyson; and his on-again-off-again relationship with WWE chief Vince McMahon
Jericho has a one-of-a-kind comedic voice and a knack for getting himself into screwball situations — both in and out of the ring. See for yourself why he is the best in the world.
FOZZY, the band featuring Chris Jericho alongside members of STUCK MOJO, will release a new single, "Lights Go Out", on April 29 across all digital platforms. The release will coincide with the track's impact at Active Rock radio, and will be the first single from the band's upcoming sixth studio album, set to hit stores this summer.
