Ugly Kid Joe frontman Whitfield Crane and Chris Jericho traded vocals on a song at Lemmy’s 70th birthday at the Whiskey on the Sunset Strip. And they are sharing a stage again starting May 4th when Ugly Kid Joe and Fozzy launch their co-headlining tour! Whit has fantastic stories about living (seriously, LIVING) on Motorhead’s tour bus and touring with Van Halen (including doing shots with bassist Michael Anthony in the middle of an EVH solo). He recounts the early days of Ugly Kid Joe, from their formation in Santa Barbara to releasing their monster EP, “Ugly As They Wanna Be,” to their near-instant success thanks to MTV to the making of their latest studio album, “Rad Wings Of Destiny.” Whit explains how they escaped the fate of other 80s metal bands when grunge arrived, why the band parted ways in 1997, and what finally brought them back together in 2010.
