Doc welcomes Fozzy and Stuck Mojo guitarist, Rich “The Duke” Ward, to the show and they talk about guitar gear and the secret to Rich’s signature tone, his early diverse musical influences, how he met Bonz and formed Stuck Mojo, grinding it out in the early days of the band, what the experience was like working with Devin Townsend and Daniel Bergstrand, why he thinks the band struggled to get over the hump, how Fozzy came together, when he almost quit music and the turning point that brought him back, what it’s like being in a band with Chris Jericho, and how he has evolved as a writer and musician as Fozzy becomes more successful.
This episode features the song “Unforgiven” by New Saviors and “Raise the Dead Man” by Stuck Mojo.
