Stuck Mojo



When Stuck Mojo's first release, "Snappin' Necks," appeared in the mid-90's they were something of a phenomenon to some and a question mark to others. Daring to be different in a non-socially acceptable way, they challenged the system musically and broke down barriers. For years the band had been building a loyal fan base in rock clubs all across America, but their first big tour came in October of 95 when they were asked to join Machine Head as their opening act on a ten-week stint of North America. That was followed by the band's first European tour, an eleven week run hitting Germany, France, Italy, England, Austria, Denmark, Poland, Belgium and the Czech Republic. On the last show of the tour, STUCK MOJO performed on the main stage at the prestigious Dynamo Festival in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Having just been named the year's best live band by MTV Europe, many rock journalists covering the event noted that STUCK MOJO was the highlight of the show.The band would go on to tour with Pantera, Testament, Life Of Agony, Type O Negative, The 24/7 Spyz, Sevendust and Clutch. STUCK MOJO became Century Media's biggest selling act in America and would remain so until 2004.In 2000, after six albums, eight world tours, years of living out of suitcases and constant friction between the band's management and the band's record company, Century Media, Stuck Mojo drifted apart. Rich went on to release several records with other band projects (Fozzy, Sick Speed) as well as a solo record and, after a 4 year hiatus, decided to reform Stuck Mojo by testing the waters with a 17-date tour of Europe in February 2005. Not only were the gigs incredibly well attended but the live reviews in the press were ecstatic, leading to 4 more tours of Europe and a 6 week tour of the States over the next 16 months.
