Chris Jericho to Host Classic Rock Roll Of Honour

WWE Wrestler and Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho is to host this year’s Classic Rock Roll Of Honour awards ceremony, which will take place at London’s Roundhouse venue on November 11.

“What a great 12 months it’s been for high-voltage rock’n’roll,” says Classic Rock Editor Siân Llewellyn. ”And what a year for us to return to the Roll Of Honour’s spiritual home at London’s Roundhouse after celebrating its tenth anniversary in Hollywood. With fantastic new bands to celebrate and brilliant albums to consider it was trickier than ever to nail down our nomination shortlist. Put simply, it means that the Classic Rock Awards will be another brilliant evening of rock’n’roll celebration!”
