Next month’s Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund’s global virtual fundraiser has just gotten even bigger.
Joining the charity all-star event on July 10 are the following new names: Rob Halford (Judas Priest); Sammy Hagar (Van Halen, Chickenfoot, Montrose); Tenacious D’s Jack Black and Kyle Gass; Lzzy Hale (Halestorm); Sebastian Bach, John Bush (Armored Saint); Mikkey Dee (Scorpions, Motörhead); Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses); Brian Tichy (Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne); Lena Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch); Richie Kotzen (Poison, Smith/Kotzen); Derek St. Holmes (Vanilla Fudge, Michael Schenker Group); Scott Travis (Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy); Ricky Warwick (Black Star Riders) and The Warning.
The artists will be honouring “Dio’s undeniable impact both on and off the stage”, with the aforementioned names either joining in conversations, or performing. This very special fundraiser “will also feature exclusive archival footage from Dio’s life and long-spanning career and never-before-seen footage from Dio Cancer Fund events”, so basically, if you’re a fan of heavy metal in any way, shape or form, it’s really not to be missed.
Guns N’ Roses fan claims Axl Rose played it to them and said it was being released “soon”…
One version of the Behemoth’s epic In Absentia Dei live album will come with a cardboard church you can burn down, because of course it does.
