News: Metal Legends Perform Cover of “Please Come Home For Christmas!

King Kobra’s vocalist, Paul Shortino; King’s X’s guitarist, Ty Tabor; drummer Carmine Appice; and Dio’s bassist, Phil Soussan performed a 1960’s R&B holiday rendition of “Please Come Home For Christmas!”

The original was written and performed by the great blues singer and pianist Charles Brown. “Please Come Home For Christmas!” is a perennial favorite around the holidays with multiple covers done by artists like The Eagles and Bon Jovi.

Along with this single, this group with many others are also releasing a two-volume set: A Very Metal Christmas and A Very Metal Christmas II. It’ll feature brand-new recordings from a vast array of supremely talented metal artists including Megadeth’s Chris Poland, Rainbow’s Graham Bonnet, and Great White’s Jack Russell, amongst others.
