Fozzy - Happenstance (2002) Retail CD
Fozzy originally formed in 1981, with a strange format of music (Metal) they were shunned by the US Music Companies. Their manager a slightly dodgy character landed them a record deal with a Japanese Company. Only after they hand signed on the dotted line did Fozzy realise the consequences. They had a 20 year contract and had to inhabit Japan for it's duration. Fozzy were stranded. They decided they had to try to make it work and began releasing music. Back in the US and Europe Music Companies got wind of this and began to releasing Fozzy songs covered by different groups for their own finacialmore… gain. Eventually the music scene changed, Metal faded off and Fozzy were forgotten about. Then in 2001 the 20 year contract expired and Fozzy were free to return to the World to reclaim their music and let people know who the true creators of metal were!Okay so that's the backstory created by Wrestling Genius Chris (Irvine) Jericho and the band Stuck Mojo. In actual fact Fozzy were are just a bunch of guys who in their spare time when they aren't wrestling in front of thousands of people or playing in a 'Real' band get together and jam. It started off as a bit of a joke for all concerned then someone close to them suggested putting out an album. Chris Jericho ever being the larger then life character that he is jumped at this suggestion and with some time and carefully thinking the band released 'Fozzy' their self-titled album of mostly cover songs. It was very successful and this part-time band were now being treated as a serious outfit by the music world, much to the surprise of the band itself. Soon screams came for a second album.So Fozzy got together and produced this album. 'Happenstance' much the same format as their first huge selling album. This album contains 11 tracks most of which are covers but the surprise being that Fozzy or should that be Jericho penned four tracks of his own for the album. This album was going to be a bit professional so Jericho wanted something original. Needless to say the album is just as big and just as successful as the first. Maybe more so because of the original tracks which actually allow us to see the real Fozzy. Jericho is a really talented entertainer wrestler Saturday-Monday, Hockey Player Tuesday & Wednesdays, Rockstar the rest of the week. His vocals are very surprising and his ability to write is also very good.The top tracks for me on this album are:To Kill A Stranger (A Song based on WWE's destruction of WCW)Crucify YourselfHappenstanceWith the Fire (A song about the wrestling superstar that is Chris Jericho)Big City NightsThe album is one I listen to time and time again. As a Fozzy fan I also look forward to Spring 2004 when the 3rd Fozzy album is released with 100% Original & Fresh Chris Jericho written tracks. This will be the first Real Fozzy album, no more covers and the band will be launching as a full on real act so expect to see some live shows offered up as well. Geat on board the Fozzy train now and don't be the last to fall for music of the talented Moongoose McQueen (Jericho).
