To celebrate one of heavy metal’s most powerful voices, an all-star group of Ronnie James Dio’s friends recorded 13 tracks for a tribute album coming out next week called “This is Your Life”.  The album features renditions of Ronnie's songs from Metallica, Anthrax, Rob Halford, Corey Taylor, Scorpions, members of Dio Disciples and more!! 

Proceeds from sales of the album will benefit the Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, a non-profit charity formed in honor of the legend who lost his life to stomach cancer on May 16, 2010. 

Check out these clips from the “This Is Your Life” pre-release listening party which took place on Monday, March 17, 2014 at The Avalon in Hollywood, CA.
