Watch Fozzy + Corey Taylor Cover KISS + The Kinks on a Cruise
Chris Jericho's Rock 'n' Wrestling Rager at Sea has returned to port. For those who weren't on the cruise, the fun is just beginning as performance videos are starting to surface, like these two clips of Corey Taylor joining Fozzy onstage for a pair of cover songs.
First up is "Cold Gin," the KISS favorite off the band's 1974 debut. Before the song starts, Jericho reminds Taylor of a conversation they had earlier where evidently the Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman vowed his button-up shirt wouldn't remain so closed off. With a drum roll from Frank Fontsere and some encouragement from Jericho, two buttons came undone and the song was soon underway. The two trade off lines in the song, as seen in the video below, singing together over the chorus
Next came the 1964 smash hit "You Really Got Me" from The Kinks off their eponymous debut record. It's the same deal with the KISS cover as Jericho and Taylor take turns singing the song. It's Taylor who takes control later in the song as the wrestler loses control, running across the stage, rolling around on top of speakers and grabbing a hold of the kid drum to anchor his jumping.
In addition to a wealth of wrestling royalty, the cruise featured musical guests like Taylor, who performed solo, Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons, Kyng, The Stir, Cherry Bombs, Shoot to Thrill, Blizzard of Ozzy, Dave Spivak Project and Papa Buck.
