So I found this sort of transcript of the interview with Chris Jericho on Saturday. It isn't the easiest to read but it does what seems to be a decent recap. Those that actually heard the interview can attest to its accuracy.

One thing in particular, the author, who did a summary of the entire 2 hour Jericho program, seems to possibly not be a James fan, or at least ignorant and insensitive. He refers to James' condition as "ass burgers". Granted, he is not the most articulate so maybe that was the best he could figure out ermm.gif but I have seen that term used elsewhere. VFTW anyone? That said, he did refer to "Catalyst" as "Canlist" lol, so maybe it was just ignorance and I will give the benefit of the doubt for the sake of a summary.

QUOTE
After the break Jericho again says welcome back to the show & says on the phone is his close & personal friend who’s his American Idol & the singer on the great new record “Memories Of A Beautiful Disaster”:

James yells “woo hoo”, Jericho softly says “HAAAA” & James says thanks. Jericho asks James as to where he is, James says he’s in Santa Cruz where it’s a beautiful overcast in the great California weather & Jericho asks James as to what he was doing seconds ago. James says he was skateboarding on his Santa
Cruz long board skateboard in his driveway.

Jericho says James was actually skateboarding because when he called him James was like [while making strange noises on the phone] & James says you’ve got to stay in shape. Jericho calls James “so California”, says congradulations on the new record & knows that it’s been doing great. He asked James as to how stoke is he, James says words can’t describe on how awesome it feels to finally have this out, how the work went into it as well as working his ass off & says everyone that has had a hand on the record. He says he put a thank you in the liners to Jericho & “Jeans” & Jericho says that “Jeans” is Paul Gargano who was on last week .

Jericho says he’ll explain to fans now that he & James met about 6 or 8 months ago when both were hot, young upstars in the entertainment world & says they were on the same lot when James was doing “American Idol” & he was doing “Dancing With The Stars”. He says they kinda had the dancing guys on 1 side while the Idols on the other side, says it was kinda like “West Side Story” to where they were kinda told it’s not allowed to go on the other side at the studio & says he don’t know the reason why that was. He says he saw James on “American Idol” when Hulk Hogan came out from behind & surprised him, says he knew that James was a wrestling fan so he had to go over & say hi to him.

Jericho asks James to talk about being a huge wrestling fan, says the whole “American Idol” thing was about wrestling & says when Hulk came out, it was 1 of the best moments in the history of anything. James says he still don’t know what to think about it because he had no clue, says that he & Paul McDonald walked out to where Ryan Seacrest said “you guys aren’t safe, no you’re really not safe” & says then when “Eye Of The Tiger” started playing & says “old school, OK ‘Eye Of The Tiger’, OK Thunderlips”. He says he then turned around & at the corner of his eye, he thought someone was ribbing him to where he saw a string was holding onto his moustache.

James says he didn’t know what to think at that point, says that the door’s opened completely, then the light shined thru & as Hulk started walking out while doing his “can you hear me” as he puts his hand near his ear, he says he just crapped in his pants at that moment. Jericho says it was that point to where he thought James was cool, says that his point was that both started kinda Twittering back & forth & says both became friends. He says they started hanging out whenever neither 1 of them were doing anything, says the thing that was cool was that James was just starting & was kinda like dead broke when he started doing “Idol”.

James says that’s correct, says he was laid off 2 days before the audition & was a pizza delivery boy. He says the audition was in August, says he had to be on hold borrowing money for 3 months, then corrects himself by saying 4 months before the judges called back & Jericho says James now has a record that’s gonna be probably the top 20 or 30 on the charts. He asked James on how it affected him & what’s it been like to go from the guy who needed to borrow money because he got laid off from being a pizza delivery boy, to a guy signing a major label with a huge push behind him in less then 6 months. James says it’s an overwhelming feeling of gratitude.

James says Jericho knows how it is in the industry to where you’re so busy, that you don’t get that moment to really think about what you’ve done & where you’ve come from, until someone reminds you. He says it’s insane, says he literally can’t believe it & Jericho says that another thing’s that you’ll hear positives & negatives. He says James is very outspoken about his Tourettes, asks if it’s Tourettes or “ass burgers” & James says it’s both. He says when James is pausing is that he’s getting his speech down, then basically getting ready to talk & says another thing, it’s like James is not only a great singer with a great attitude & a total family guy, but also has this disease that he’s handled.

Jericho says that James is like a superhero for millions of others worldwide that has the same condition he’s got, says that’s a lot of responsibility for a 23 year old kid & James says it’s something that it was something tough to take on. He says his whole was that he never thought he’d be a voice to kids or anyone else that’s struggling, bullied or anything like that, says that his dream was to be a working musician while supporting himself for his family & doing what he loves to do, which’s something that he knows how to do & says it was gonna be either 2 things. He says it was to be either a singer or a pro wrestler & says that didn’t happen.

James says he’s got the Christian belt, Jericho says it’s possible while James was saying that he’s got a young Flair belt, to where he says it’s not very flattering. Jericho says it’s possible to be a wrestler & singer in a rock & roll band, says he knows, tells James that he can do it & tells James that maybe someday. He asks to hear something from James’ CD, says his favourite from it is called “Higher Than Heaven”, says it’s very heavy to where he loves the guitar solo & says he wants to talk about it. He says he wants to play it know with James’ permission, James says it’s OK & Jericho says from James’ 1st record by saying that it’s the 1st song from it.

12.Plays James Durbin’s “Higher Than Heaven”.

13.Jericho says that’s a great song, says what a way to kick off the record & says it’s different from anything that he’s heard from James before. He asks James if he sees it as a lower register to where it’s got a cool vibe on the vocal with an effect on it & feels it’s a great way to kick it off. James says it was a fun song to write, says that he had a writing session with Marty Fredrickson who’s written for countless artists such as Aerosmith & mentions Sixx: A.M.’s James Michael, Jericho says they’re huge guys to write with & asked if both of them wrote the song with James. James says yes to where it was a 3 way writing session & it was like the 3 way “ice cream session” that had him, Jericho & The Miz who had a boa.

Jericho says he remembers that, says they hung out quite a bit during those days & was at The Rainbow, which’s where he took James there for the 1st time. James felt that they abused that place’s priviledges, Jericho agrees & says the mozzarella sticks were amazing there. James asks as to who was that crazy Swedish guy that Jericho was trying to fix up with a transgender gal, Jericho says there’s a cast of characters there to where some regulars such as 1 guy that had a bad wig or hair with the UFO shirt, says those people are probably listening now & would probably kill him the next time he goes there. He says both he & James had a great time.

Jericho says he got to meet James’ friend Dylan who was a guitarist & asked if he played on the record. James says yes on “Higher Than Heaven”, Jericho says that’s another cool thing to where James is always talking about it & asks as to what is Dylan’s last name. James says that Dylan prefers Rose, Jericho says James & Dylan has played together at Santa Cruz & James says yes. Jericho says when James got his record to where Dylan was getting noticed to where he told Jericho that he wanted to do a record with Dylan. He says he wanted Dylan in his band & wanted to play with him, says that here he is playing a killer solo on the song & says that’s amazing.

Jericho says it’s for the fact that James brought Dylan in to where he’s assuming that he’ll be touring with James, to where it’s another feather in James’ cap by remembering his friends from the old days & didn’t leave them behind. James says yes, says that Dylan’s his lead guitarist & says another person named Tyler [Molinaro & was known as "Tyno Vincent"], was in a band called Dirty Penny & is now his bassist. Jericho says that’s great, James mentions a funny story to where the last gig he played before being put on hold & the possibility on going on “Idol”, was at the “Canulist” in Santa Cruz & says the card had his band, Hollywood Scars, Dirty Penny & Dylan’s band called Archer.

James says they were the only 3 bands that played there to where they played 1 after the other, Jericho says that now all of them are in a band together & James says that’s great. Jericho says that’s cool, says he wants to talk about the “Idol” experience to where it took James to a different level of life & went from nothing, to that everyone knew who he was. He asks James if he thought it was a great way to break into the business to where he’s at now, James says yes & says it took a while to get used to it to where he was automatically in it. He thinks that in the long run it really helps because it made him get his act together a lot quicker then he would had before.

James says by easing on into it, then slowly having to learn these things to where he needed to learn it right way, because he needed to learn on how not to act on TV. Jericho says that another thing he can see to where James had some stage experiences to where he sees it, says that from the very 1st song he did he owned the stage & says that made it a difference. He says that “Idol” is not really a rock show, says it’s not geared to rock & roll, James agrees & Jericho says it’s not focused on it. He says it’s for the fact that James went out, stuck to his guns, always did good choices & good tunes & again says he owned the stage like Bruce Dickinson, Steven Tyler or anyone else would.

Jericho says he thinks that kinda took James to another level, even though he was playing rock songs which’s kind of frowned upon in the “Idol” world. He says it was James’ poise & stage presence that helped him stay on the show for as long as he did, James says thanks & says he spent lots of time watching live footage on bands that he likes. He says by seeing on how they command the stage & the audience, says it’s not always about having the strongest vocal at a live show, but more about engaging with the audience & making them feel like they’re a part of the show & not just sitting there watching to where Jericho agrees.

Jericho says he has to connect with the crowd & make them part of the show, says that lots of rock guys who kinda look down on “Idol” as to “it’s just this or it’s just that” & says when James was on there playing with Zack Wylde & Judas Priest & sang heavy metal & other great tunes, he thinks that it put him in the rock world more than it had ever been on “Idol”. He thinks that it worked out great for James to where he’ll have lots of fans from “Idol” & more conventional Avenged Sevenfold, Judas Priest type fans also, because he put himself on the map from being the metal guy on “Idol”. He wants to hear another song from the record.
Jericho asks James as to what he’d like to hear as to what’s his favorite from it, which’s 1 that he loves his vocal performance on it. James says it’s “Outcast” that was written by him & Mick Mars who plays on it & says his favorite international band, Sweden’s Hardcore Superstar. Jericho says he wants to talk about them & Mick Mars after the song.

14.Plays James Durbin & Mick Mars’ “Outcast”.

15.Jericho says that’s a great tune with Mick’s great solo, asked James as to how did he hook up with Mick & how he got him involved in it. James says it was the night that him & Jericho was at the Cruz show at the Hollywood Bowl & Jericho says right. James says they went backstage to where he spoke with Mick, says that Jericho was talking his ear off & Jericho says Mick’s cool. James agrees, then says it’s where he met his attorney to where she works with Motley [Crue] & says Mick remembered him to where his attorney told him, that he was making an album. He says Mick offered to play on the record for free & Jericho says that’s cool.
James says “oh my God”, says that was intense & it’s awesome. He says that anything Mick gets his hands on, that lick, tab & cord progression or whatever it is on that solo, is Mick & nobody else. He says it’s often imitated & never duplicated, Jericho agrees & says only Mick has that tone & feel. He says his boss Nikki Sixx, has said many times that Mick’s his hero & says you can tell. He says Mick won’t play on his record for free, says that he’s talking Mick’s ears off & calls Mick a nice guy. He says the Motley Crue guys are cool, but Mick’s like every man to where he’s happy to be there & playing. He says Mick did a great job on that solo for James, to where it’s a huge deal.

Jericho says that he sees that it’s co-written with the Hardcore Superstar guys, says that James’ always talking about them & says not a lot of people in this country has heard of them. He asks James as to how did he get into them & how did he contacted them to write the tune with him. James says he was in a local Santa Cruz band, Hollywood Scars, which was his own 2 hair metal bands & says he was the voice named Jimmy Levox. He says thruout searching for his character & searching for the right sound for the band, he stumbled upon an incredible European bands like Crashdiet, Negative & Peepshow. He says thruout it all he discovered Hardcore Superstar.

James says they were just the best to where they had everthing, says they sounded great live & put on a great show. He says they’re frigging characters & says they’re great. He says when it came time to make the album he told his team that they have to reach out to Hardcore Superstar & get a song written by them on the record. He says he did reach out, says he was on the “Idol” tour at a mall somewhere & says they had a hot topic, by trying to find skinny jeans that would fit him for once. He says he got a call to where they told him they contacted Hardcore Superstar, says that they’re on the phone now & Jericho says that’s cool.

Jericho says that’s another indication that James never forget where he came from, much to the fact that he still has Dylan playing with all those guys & says James actually got Hardcore Superstar, to where they’re writting songs for him. He says when the album becomes multi-platinum ain’t gonna hurt them either, says that James should always remember his friends & others that’s influenced him & asks him as to what’s coming up. He asks James if he’ll be touring & what’re the plans after the record, James says he’s planning a big 2012 tour & talking to a huge name who’s a billion times larger then they’ll probably
ever be.

James says it’s been 3 weeks back & forth with them, says he can’t say who it is now but says that they still haven’t said no. Jericho says he don’t want James to say anything but guesses it could be Aerosmith & says if they tour next year, it’d be awesome. He says if it ain’t them, then it’d be cool for James to tour with someone like them & says no matter who it is, they’re gonna kill it. He says it’s a great record, says he just started to get into it, says he likes the songs on it & says he loves James’ voice. He says James stood out on “Idol”, says he stood up for what he believes in & says he still does. He says he’s proud to be James’ friend & wishes him nothing but the best.

Jericho hopes that soon they can return to The Rainbow with the Swedish transvestite & eat more mozzarella sticks. James says absolutely, Jericho says he’ll end it off with “Stand Up” that’s from the record, thanks James & says he’ll talk to him soon. James says thanks for having him on the show.

16.Plays James Durbin’s “Stand Up” & then takes a break.

17.After the break Jericho again says welcome back to the show, thanks James for hanging with him & calls him a great guy. He says he’s excited for James to where his record kicks ass, says you need to listen
to.
