Rob Halford, Alice Cooper, Lemmy and Glenn Hughes To Appear On Ronnie James Dio Tribute Album

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 Black Sabbath hit 'Mob Rules,' and Halford will be taking on 'Long Live Rock 'n' Roll.' "

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.
