Metallica, Motorhead, Anthrax and More Join Forces for Dio Tribute Album
Paying respect to late metal god Ronnie James Dio, some of his fellow guitar-driven greats and prominent metal artists have joined forces on a tribute album titled "This Is Your Life."

Produced by Dio's longtime manager and life companion Wendy Dio, the record features such class acts as Metallica, Motorhead, Rob Halford, Anthrax, Corey Taylor, Tenacious D, Scorpions and more.
