Who is Rich Ward?

Richard Park Ward, also known by his stage name The Duke, is a guitarist with heavy metal band Fozzy. But he is best recognized as the founding member of Stuck Mojo, a rap metal band from the early 1990s.  



 

A Georgia native, Ward grew up listening to heavy metal and hard rock albums brought over by a college student, whom his divorced mother hired to look after him and his sister. His interest in this genre of music grew from there and he started learning guitar at the age of 12. In 1989, when he was 20 years old, he formed the band Stuck Mojo with Duane Fowler. They released their debut album 'Snappin' Necks' in 1995 and inspired later bands like Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit. 

Ward's involvement in the wrestling domain happened when he bonded with WWE superstar Chris Jericho and formed Fozzy together. Though it is not officially confirmed, it can be assumed that Ward met his future wife Daffney aka Shannon Spurrill around this time. The duo got married in 1999 but domestic bliss was short-lived for them. They finally separated in 2003. 

Rich Ward moved on and found marital happiness once again with his present wife Julie. Meanwhile, Daffney dated WWE star CM Punk briefly but their relationship also did not work out. CM Punk is now married to AJ Lee. Daffney Unger is not known to be notably involved with anyone since then. 

Her latest live video has now got everyone worried about the former star's well-being. No update has been found about her as per the latest reports.
