We all know Chris Jericho as one of our most beloved long time WWE superstars. But few know him as rock and roll lead singer of a band called Fozzy. If you have ever wondered why Jericho takes frequent breaks from being on the road from the WWE, this is why. Fozzy has been around blessing our ears since 1999. Jericho once even defined the band as saying, “If Metallica and Journey had a bastard child, it would be Fozzy.”
Band members consist of Chris Jericho, Rich Ward, Frank Fontsere, Billy Gray, and Paul Di Leo. They recently just released a new single and music video for their some, Judas. That eventually became number 1 on the iTunes rock chart in 8 different countries including the United States. They have received over 3.4 million views on the music video. The most recent stop on the tour was Joliet, Illinois. They had everyone at The Forge on their feet. They had 3 opening bands that were must-see’s as well!
Never Say Die
Never Say Die is a rock band from Tronto, Canada. They opened the show with a number of great songs. Tons of people turned out to help welcome this great band. We all rocked out to their current single “Like a Nightmare”. Highly recommend you give this up and coming band a peak!
Sons of Texas
Sons of Texas was the second band on the card. They were a little more open about what they sang about. A few songs in they introduced their next one to all the guys wanting to get to business with their girls. These guys were totally cool. After their set, they even walked around and rocked out with the crowd. Give them a listen next time you pull up iTunes!
Kyng is a rock band based out of Los Angelos, California. Out of the few listed above, you may have heard this band on the radio. Kyng has toured before with the likes of Saliva, Seether, and Papa Roach. They were the last set before Fozzy came out. They set a great pace with a lighter-in-the-air type of ovation.
Fozzy opened their set with their new single Judas. The crowd absolutely loved it. They were very interactive with the crowd, including spraying water in the crowd in a very risque way. The Judas Rising Tour is just about over with just a hand full of shows left. Personally, this was my first concert ever and I am so happy I went to this one. 11/10 will go to any one of these guys shows!
Top Republicans break with Donald Trump after he said “3000 people did not die” in Puerto Rico
Nearly 3,000 people died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico but if you listen to President Donald Trump, that never happened.
Yes, he really is denying that 3,000 people died because of the hurricane.
“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000,” Trump said on Twitter on Thursday morning.

…..This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!

Trump said this despite the governor formally raising the death toll number from 64 to 2,976 after a study from The George Washington University.
Top Republicans broke from the President. “no reason to dispute those numbers,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan. “Those are just the facts of what happened.”
“I disagree with @POTUS– an independent study said thousands were lost and Gov. Rosselló agreed. I’ve been to Puerto Rico 7 times & saw devastation firsthand. The loss of any life is tragic; the extent of lives lost as a result of Maria is heart wrenching. I’ll continue to help PR,” Florida Senator Rick Scott said in a statement on Twitter.

Trump has continued to deny that his administration could have done more in the aftermath of the storm. Earlier this week, he praised his administration and said that his handling of the relief efforts were “an incredible, unsung success.”
Henry Cavill could still return for “Superman” role, despite rumors to the contrary
Hold your horses! The whole uproar over Henry Cavill no longer being associated with the “Superman” franchise is just an invented conflict, according to what sources told TMZ.
It is true that Cavill felt he was underpaid for the role but there has been no discussion about the future of his role because there is no active “Superman” project in the works right now.
Cavill will still be in consideration with others if and when the next movie is greenlit. Apparently, people assumed that he moved on from “Superman” after accepting a deal with Netflix for “The Witcher” but the fact is that there is no conflict so there’s a chance he will be back in the role.
Cavill posted this on Instagram:
