    CELEBRATING THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF RONNIE JAMES DIO

    This Is Your Life Pays Tribute To The Late Singer With Covers Of
    His Greatest Songs From Rainbow, Black Sabbath, And Dio

    Features Newly Recorded Tracks From Anthrax, Halestorm, Rob Halford, Metallica, Motörhead, Scorpions, Corey Taylor, And Tenacious D, Among Others
    To Benefit The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund

    Available On April 1 From Rhino

    LOS ANGELES – Ronnie James Dio is one of the most beloved figures in rock history. His gifts, both as a singer and songwriter, are instantly recognizable, whether he was with Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, or leading Dio. Sadly, Dio lost his battle with stomach cancer in 2010 but his towering voice and legacy live on.

    To celebrate one of rock’s most powerful voices, an all-star group of his friends and fans recorded 13 of their favorite tracks for a tribute album that will raise funds for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund (diocancerfund.org). Produced by his longtime manager and wife Wendy Dio, the album includes contributions by such metal heavyweights as Metallica, Motörhead, Scorpions, Anthrax, and Rob Halford, as well as appearances by many of the musicians who performed with Dio over the years.

    THIS IS YOUR LIFE will be available from Rhino on April 1 for a suggested list price of $18.98. A digital version will also be available.

    Although the songs featured on the album touch on the different eras of Dio’s career, several spotlight his time with Rainbow, including Metallica’s epic, nine-minute “Ronnie Rising Medley,” which combines the Rainbow songs “A Light In The Black,” “Tarot Woman,” “Stargazer,” and “Kill The King.” Scorpions add a scorching take on “The Temple Of The King” while Motörhead is joined by Biff Byford from Saxon on “Starstruck.” Rob Halford teams with frequent Dio collaborators Vinny Appice, Doug Aldrich, Jeff Pilson, and Scott Warren for “The Man On The Silver Mountain.” The final line-up of Dio’s solo band – Simon Wright, Craig Goldy, Rudy Sarzo and Scott Warren – are joined by Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath) for “Catch The Rainbow,” a track from Rainbow’s 1975 debut.

    Anthrax and Adrenaline Mob honor Dio’s memorable stint with Black Sabbath with their takes on “Neon Knights” and “The Mob Rules” respectively, as does a group, led by Oni Logan on vocals along with Jimmy Bain, Rowan Robertson, and Brian Tichy, which performs “I” from Dehumanizer.

    THIS IS YOUR LIFE also includes songs from Dio’s back-to-back platinum albums Holy Diver (1983) and The Last In Line (1984), with Doro’s take on “Egypt (The Chains Are On)”, Halestorm tackling “Straight Through The Heart,” Corey Taylor (Stone Sour, Slipknot) covering the classic “Rainbow In The Dark” and Tenacious D (Jack Black and Kyle Glass) putting their signature spin on “The Last In Line.” Killswitch Engage’s cover of “Holy Diver,” a hit in its own right when released in 2006, is also included here.

    Fittingly, Ronnie James Dio provides the finale (and the album’s title) with his moving
    performance of “This Is Your Life.” Originally released on Angry Machines (1996), the song’s
    lyrics explore mortality and are backed by a stark and beautiful arrangement that features Dio
    accompanied only by his longtime keyboardist Scott Warren on piano. The song serves as
    a poignant reminder that we will never hear a voice like Dio’s again.

    The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, co-founded by Wendy Dio, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable fund dedicated to supporting cancer-prevention research, raising awareness and educating the public about the vital importance of early detection and prevention when dealing with this deadly disease.

    Si no incluyen ésta, no mola:

    A ver si acerca alguno a esta maravilla. O a esta otra que debería estar incluida. Ya que meten alguna publicadas en este tributo, o en otros discos, que metan las mejores:

    En el artículo pone que son temas inéditos pero me parece que algunas de esas versiones ya se ha editado ¿O son regrabaciones?

    Así a bote pronto, me suenan que se habían editado la de Killswitch Engage y Doro.

    A mí me parece interesante y tiene buena pinta. Pero me molaría más que se juntaran todos estos músicos y hicieran un concierto tributo como el de Freddie Mercury.
    A lo mejor con lo del disco se animan y lo hacen.

    Joder, pues yo soy un romántico de estas cosas y como me parece entrañable me lo voy a comprar. El último tributo que me pillê fue hace años ya de Maiden con gente como Scott Soto, Lemmy, Dee Snider, George Lynch… Estas cosa, bien hechas, molan.

    La versiôn antitrue de Killswitch Engage en este tributo me parece gloria bendita.
