While at a press Feb. 23 conference to announce the nominees for Revolver magazine's third annual Revolver Golden Golds Awards, Wendy Dio -- who was on hand to celebrate the unveiling of the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award -- told Noisecreep there is a tribute album in the works, among other things.
"Then we have a tribute record, which probably won't come out this year, but everybody signed up. Even today they were picking songs for which songs they're gonna do," she says.
Who´s up so far? "Rob Halford, Glenn Hughes, Dave Grohl, Lemmy, she said, adding "Grohl will do the hit 'Mob Rules,' and Halford will be taking on 'Long Live Rock 'n' Roll.' "
