NME Godlike Genius joined by Alice Cooper and Lemmy on album
Dio, who died in May 2010, had spells singing in Black Sabbath and ’80s metallers Rainbow as well as a lengthy solo career.
His widow, Wendy Galaxiola, confirmed that the album is unlikely to be released this year but that all the artists were in place, reports Noisecreep.com.
Galaxiola said: “We have a tribute record, which probably won’t come out this year, but everybody signed up.”
Halford will add vocals to a new recording of Rainbow’s ‘Long Live Rock ‘n’ Roll’. Motorhead’s Lemmy and Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach are also confirmed to take part.
