Corey Taylor is one of many rockers paying tribute to the one and only Ronnie James Dio.

Rob Halford, Metallica and Halestorm, along with Corey and a bunch more, all take on their favorite Dio songs.  The disc, “Ronnie James Dio - This Is Your Life“, covers various phases in Ronnie’s career including material from Rainbow, Black Sabbath (later renamed Heaven and Hell) and his solo work.

Corey on why he chose “Rainbow In The Dark”:

“Ronnie was the most natural singer I have ever witnessed.” “He could do anything, hit any note, make any audience lose their minds. He was one of the greatest and I’m so happy I got to see him live. ‘Rainbow in the Dark’ was the first Dio song I really loved to death – just a powerful, high-energy hard rock song that was so good I wished I’d written it. When I was asked to be a part of this album, I knew there was only one track I wanted to record and luckily I got it. I only hope I did it justice. Having had the privilege of meeting Ronnie before he passed, I hope he knows how much I loved him for who and what he was: One of the greatest.”

I met Ronnie myself and Corey is right, it was a privilege.

Proceeds from the cd, which will be released Tuesday, go to the “Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund”.  Ronnie lost his own battle with cancer in 2010.
