Chris Jericho (Fozzy) Releases Cover Of The Kinks’ “Father Christmas”

Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho & The Christmas Helves have released a cover of The Kinks’ “Father Christmas.” Jericho said the following about that:

“I’ve always wanted to do a Christmas song, as it’s guaranteed annual airplay (and if I hear ‘Wonderful Christmas Time’ one more time, I’m gonna stuff myself down a chimney), so I put together the musical assassins known as ‘The Christmas Helves’ and banged out this sugarplum version of my favorite Kinks tune! Best part is all proceeds will be donated to JDRF to fight Juvenile Diabetes! So, grab your eggnog and frankincense…whatever the hell that is…and rock out with your Santa sack out!”
