Motorhead - Heavy Metal Stars Pay Tribute To Ronnie James Dio On New Album

Motorhead, Anthrax and Metallica are among the heavy metal heavyweights paying tribute to late rock icon Ronnie James Dio on a new album.

The three acts have joined the likes of Killswitch Engage, Scorpions and Tenacious D to rework Dio's classic tracks for the upcoming release, This is Your Life, which will help raise funds for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund.

Produced by Dio's longtime manager and wife Wendy, the album's highlights include Metallica's nine-minute Ronnie Rising Medley, which features snippets from the late rocker's Rainbow recordings, and a new version of Starstruck recorded by Motorhead and Saxon frontman Biff Byford.

The album will be released in April (14).

Dio lost his battle with stomach cancer in 2010.
