A RONNIE JAMES DIO (BLACK SABBATH, DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, RAINBOW, ELF) tribute album is in the works by Dio's widow Wendy according to a new interview by Noisecreep's Steve Baltin.
"It probably won't come out this year, but everybody signed up," Dio told Noisecreep.
So, who's signed on thus far? "Rob Halford (JUDAS PRIEST), Glenn Hughes, Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS), Lemmy (MOTÖRHEAD)," she said, adding Grohl will do the Black Sabbath hit 'Mob Rules,' and Halford will be taking on 'Long Live Rock 'N' Roll.' And artists keep coming on. "I just talked to ALICE (COOPER), roped Alice in and SEBASTIAN (BACH) and Chris (Jericho)," she said, referring to fellow attendees at the Golden Gods press conference. And Cooper already has a song in mind, going back to the Elf days, according to Wendy.
