Jeff Hardy On Being In A Band And Wrestling

Jeff Hardy spoke to WWE about topics surrounding his music career outside of pro wrestling. Here are some of the highlights:

Splitting time between his band (Peroxwhy?gen) and wrestling:

“It’s hard, man, [on] days like that Monday Night Raw in Nashville. We did that show after our latest CD – ‘Precession of the Equinoxes,’ which is available now at – came out. It was a tough day: We wrestled The Revival, got beat, and then I had to get ready and sing 14 songs. It’s tough, but I think moving forward, we’re gonna try to do a show at least once a month in towns near and around Nashville.”

If Matt Hardy ever contributes:

“I’ve tried my best! Matt has written so many cool raps back in the day. I’ve said, ‘Man, let’s just get in the studio and record a brotherly song! I’ll try to do my little alternative abstract rock and you come in with a bridge rap at the end.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, man,’ but he’s also said he’s gonna get ‘Hardy Boyz’ tattooed on his neck and it hasn’t happened yet, so I don’t know if we’ll ever write a song together. Still, for him to come out and support me that night meant the world. We’ve been through so much, and for us to be back in WWE doing what we’re doing now, and have my music going the way it is, it’s the best to have his support.”

Goals for his band:

“I actually had the opportunity to play the [Vans] Warped Tour this month, two Carolina dates. I was so scared to commit; I knew I was coming back to WWE, but it was before we made our return. I was like, ‘I can’t really commit to that; should I ask somebody?’ I kept putting it off and putting it off until finally, I said, ‘All right, there’s no more time.’ But, starting now, my goal is to play the Warped Tour next summer – a couple of days in the Carolinas or Tennessee. As far as wrestling, it’s to keep on rockin’ and maybe perform at one of the pay-per-views these days. Maybe write a song for one.”
