Post DIO Tribute Album Reply with quote
Your thoughts please..... Very Happy

Wendy Niji, has revealed more information about the upcoming Dio tribute album, which is due next year. The collection, which will be released via Niji Entertainment Group, the label that was created by Ronnie and Wendy, will tentatively include contributions from METALLICA, JUDAS PRIEST's Rob Halford, MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister, DEEP PURPLE's Ian Gillan, Alice Cooper, Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH), Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW) and Dave Grohl (NIRVANA, FOO FIGHTERS). The CD will reportedly see Grohl covering BLACK SABBATH's "The Mob Rules", Halford contributing a version of RAINBOW's "Long Live Rock 'N' Roll" and Hughes offering up his rendition of RAINBOW's "Catch The Rainbow".

Speaking to Eric Blair of "The Blairing Out With Eric Blair Show" at this past Saturday's (December 1) Icons & Idols-Rock 'N' Roll Auction at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills, California, Wendy said, "We have a lot of [artists] who are working on [their contributions to the tribute album]. METALLICA has already finished theirs for us and ANTHRAX and Glenn Hughes [have completed theirs as well]. Rob Halford's working on it. I think Alice Cooper's working on it. MOTÖRHEAD, [in] January we'll get theirs. So we'll have a whole classic CD ready next year, and so I'm hoping to then ask the younger bands to do a tribute to Ronnie as well, so we can do two CDs: a classic one and the younger bands."

Asked if she had any younger bands in mind for the tribute album, Wendy said, "I haven't approached anyone, but who I would pick would definitely be KORN, AVENGED SEVENFOLD… Anyone that's been influenced by Ronnie or Ronnie's music, and I think it would be a great tribute and it would be great fun to do, too."

According to Wendy, she left it up to each artist to choose which song to cover and didn't get involved in the creative process. "They could pick anything from ELF, DIO, RAINBOW, SABBATH… whichever songs they wanted to do," she said. "With Ronnie and I, we worked together as a team; he always was the creative one and I was at the business side. I never interfered with his music and he never interfered with my business, and I think if you give the person the creativity, that's what they are — they create. Let them create which song they'd like to create."

Wendy also spoke to some of the tracks that have already been completed for the Dio tribute album, calling Glenn's version of "Catch The Rainbow" "amazing," saying that "it absolutely brought so many tears to my eyes." She also described ANTHRAX's rendition of "Neon Knights" as "fantastic," but remained mum on METALLICA's contribution, saying, "I'm not gonna tell you what that is. It's gonna be surprise. It's a medley, and it's gonna be a surprise."

I will buy it but only if all the profits go towards cancer fund Exclamation
As I can't see this happening ...I am not interested Mad
When are the fans gonna get product quality, look at Instituto Ayrton Senna, with over 250 licensed products by 23 companies, nothing with Senna's name gets his name on it unless its the very best.From Ducati to a simple t-shirt its always about quality.
Thats how to look after legends Exclamation

Nevermet, isnt big enough to be on this album, but I did try, and got the usual Niji response, which was none at all.

I'm not a huge fan of covers, especially when it comes to Ronnie's songs, so I doubt I would have bought this. I'm all for proper tributes but I'd rather have people create something new in Ronnie's honour -- there are very few covers I've been able to listen without cringing.

When it comes to helping cancer research, this is something I'm very interested in but for some reason, I don't trust her (partly because of the way she's been fooling people -- fans and musicians alike -- for all that time) so I'd rather get involved with another organisation, to be honest. I can still donate or take part in events in Ronnie's name, even with a charity that does not carry His name.

That is my humble opinion on this matter.

I dont think this is the Greatest rendition of a Ronnie Song, but I would like to say that it is an honest one, It has a small production, with a performance that comes from the heart, and that to me was all I was looking for. Yeah the big bands will have wonderful productions, and big budget sound to go along with it, but in the end they really will just be promoting themselves in disguise by being on this album. Also I have heard some of these bands sing Dio songs before, and it wasnt that great. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jJapMYsb5g&feature=youtu.be

Hamalane...I agree with you, Jorn tribute song to RJD is the kind of thing, I want to hear, do you remember it...''Song For Ronnie James''
I don't want artists covering DIO songs....why would any one buy them when they can listen to the Master sing them himself.
I never touched the last one...Holy Dio Confused
Sorry about calling Wendy Niji....I forgot her new name is Wendy Gimenez or is it Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Do you folks remember Wendy saying this....
Wendy Gimenez has hit out at bands releasing "tribute" albums to late husband Ronnie without donating proceeds to the Stand Up And Shout cancer fund set up in his name.
In a new statement, Wendy says: "I have seen lately a lot of bands releasing “so-called” Dio tribute CDs. Please do not be fooled by thinking that they are doing this for the Fund, the money is going into their pockets and not to the Fund. I find this totally disgraceful and upsetting that they are trying to make money off Ronnie’s death."

Rolling Eyes Wink

''Why would you want to buy a reproduction when you can buy the original?'' said Wendy Gimenez.

*coughs delicately*
she should have added "unless I can profit from it, in which case decency, morality and quality have absolutely no importance whatsoever."

Ronnie also mentioned several times that, although He was flattered by tribute albums, He felt awkward about them and didn't really like them (apart from the intention of paying tribute, which is nice)
