Kurt Angle used to have dreams of being a rock 'n' roll star.
During a recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show, the WWE Hall of Famer was asked about his drumming ability and whether or not there was ever talk of working that skill into a storyline. Angle responded by saying that he used to dream about being in a band with Chris Jericho, but never asked the current AEW star because his band, Fozzy, already had a drummer.
"I had this dream. I knew Chris Jericho was the lead singer for his band. We were in WWE and every day I wanted to go up to him and just say, 'Hey, can I be part of your band? We can do an album, and WWE can record it, and we could be big rock stars.' I thought, 'You know what? I'm a drummer. I'm really good. So I think Chris would would take me in.' But the problem is he already had a drummer, so I never asked him. I wish I would have. There could have been two drummers in his band. You never know," Angle said.
Kurt continued on, sharing that his favorite song to play on the drums is RUSH's Tom Sawyer, noting that it took him five years to perfect the prog-rock classic.
"Tom Sawyer. Neil Peart is a badass. It took me five years to perfect that song. The drums in that song are the most difficult drumming I've ever seen. I can play it perfectly. The whole drum solo, everything. I learned that from a tee. I listened to that song every day, all day long, and I got it down," he said.
