Fozzy vocalist Chris Jericho is not too involved about what the GRAMMYs or Rock And Roll Corridor Of Fame take into consideration rock. In an interview with Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk, Jericho stated that the rock style has “at all times been type of the red-headed stepchild of the music world” apart from just a few notable bands like Metallica and Weapons N’ Roses.
Jericho then elaborated on his level, including that rock possible will not be dropped at the forefront till the trade finds band to get behind.
“Nicely, now you are going into the enterprise standpoint of issues. Is there bands that might do it? In fact there may be. In case you take a look at the Struts, or in the event you take a look at Greta, otherwise you take a look at a few of these kinds of bands — Soiled Honey and Halestorm — otherwise you talked about Fozzy, a good-time rock and roll band. However it’s a must to have the trade behind you. And that is what I imply by Weapons N’ Roses or Metallica in ’91. These bands had been at all times nice, nevertheless it was the trade getting behind them, the choice makers getting behind them. And you understand how that works. And till the subsequent rock band is type of deemed that, I do not assume you are gonna see rock within the forefront.
“I do not assume it is value getting offended about as a result of we all know that the arenas are nonetheless full, rock and roll is alive and nicely, and we should not fear what the GRAMMYs assume or what the Rock And Roll Corridor Of Fame [thinks]. Who offers a shit in any case? It is like Chuck D. stated: ‘Who cares if I received a freakin’ Grammy?’ I believe that a lot of the bands really feel that means.”
