Chris Jericho claims he was quite close to Lemmy Kilmister

Chris Jericho, the lead singer of Fozzy, participated in an interview with Classic Rock and discussed his idol, the late Motorhead legend Lemmy Kilmister. Jericho discussed his relationship with Kilmister while revealing some of their diverse conversations. Motorhead’s legacy was cemented as the defining band of the new wave of British heavy metal, a musical movement that reached its zenith in the 1980s alongside Saxon, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, and numerous others. Metallica, Slipknot, and Napalm Death, among others, were influenced by the group’s heavy and obnoxious sound. According to certain critics, they owed Motorhead and its members a great deal.

Kilmister’s riffs in particular became genre-defining works for the music industry and other artists. Jericho, who has always admired Kilmister’s style and praised his contributions to rock and metal, stated that he was very close with the guitarist. According to the frontman of Fozzy, he and the deceased guitarist shared similar tastes and frequently discussed them. Jericho disclosed that they frequently engaged in amusing conversations about John Cleese and Connie Booth’s British television sitcom ‘Fawlty Towers,’ rock and roll pioneer Chuck Berry, and the Cavern Club, as well as other prominent and obscure rock music industry figures. His words demonstrate that Jericho and Kilmister had a long-lasting friendship until Kilmister’s death on December 28, 2015.

The Jericho declaration read: “Mick Jagger is still an inspiration; at nearly eighty years old, he’s an incredible performer. I’d love to do some shows with AC/DC to observe their performance up close. I was reasonably close with Lemmy. We would have entertaining discussions about “Fawlty Towers,” the Cavern Club, Chuck Berry, and lesser-known rock and roll artists.” Chris Jericho of Fozzy added that in addition to Kilmister, one of the musicians who influenced him was Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones, who was still performing nonstop during their concerts despite his advanced age. Later in the conversation, Jericho also mentioned AC/decades-long DC’s reign over rock music.
