Zicky Dice has been called many things throughout his wrestling career, but one thing you can’t call him is unambitious.
Dice has been known to refer to himself as a Swiss Army knife of entertainment, and for good reason. Far from just a professional wrestler, the Outlandish One has been known to perform magic, host games shows, and, of course, for fronting his own band, Heart to Heart, for over a decade.
When I recently had the opportunity to chat with Dice, we dove into not only some of his ideal wrestling bandmates, but a few projects that the IMPACT star has been mulling about.
A Wrasslin’ Band
Though Dice is one of the most prominent musician/wrestler combinations, he’s far from alone. Jericho, The Blade, Mickie James, and R-Truth are perhaps a few of the more well-known out there, but again, they’re far from the only. For that reason, I was excited to pose my final question to Dice.
“If you were forming a band exclusively consisting of pro wrestlers who would be in it?”
I laughed before continuing.
“They made sure to specify by no means do they need to have musical talent. You don’t have to pick people in bands.”
After a few seconds, Dice chuckled and began to answer.
“Now there’s a few people that I know that jam,” commented the Outlandish One. “Rich Swann plays a nasty guitar. Chris Bey plays guitar. Brody King is in a hardcore band. Mandrews plays in a pop-punk band. Oh man, who would I have in this band though? Chris Dickinson plays drums! I’m trying to see – do I know any wrestling bass players? I feel like those are the first ones that come to mind.”
“Like anything else I do, I want it to be the best. So, although someone may look pretty and may think they can sing, I’d rather get someone that I know can. I don’t know. I know I’ve heard some people sing, too, and I’m drawing a blank now.”
“You’re not putting yourself in the slot?” I asked incredulously.
“Of course I’d be in the band!” he exclaimed. “Of course, yeah I’d be there! I’ve been talking about starting another band for a while, and I’d love to play an instrument and sing backup. I love to have like a female-fronted band [that] kind of sounds Cranberries-ish, you know? We’ll see what happens there. I’ve also talked about doing a solo project for a little bit and just releasing some Zicky Dice music. So we’ll see what happens there.”
