Metallica’s tribute to Ronnie James Dio is streaming online.
The guys were invited to contribute to the forthcoming Dio covers album ‘This Is Your Life’ but, instead of picking one song to cover, selected four instead.
They did a megamix of ‘Stargazer’, ‘Tarot Woman,’ ‘Kill the King,’ and ‘A Light in the Black’.
The tribute album is being released on April 1 and also features tracks by Motörhead, Tenacious D and Anthrax plus one-off supergroups featuring members of Judas Priest, Slipknot and Dio’s band.
Proceeds from the record benefit the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout cancer fund.

Two Army vets called out a guy wearing fake military gear at San Joaquin College in California and it was all caught on video.
He was wearing an E-8 rank and Ranger, E.O.D. and 101st Airborne tabs.
They recognized the uniform as fake and called him out.
Cellphone video captured the anger from an Army vet and an ex-Army ranger.
The vets are asked to leave the man in military gear alone, and one of them responds: “I am a United States f***ing Ranger and this guy is not. I had four brothers who died with this goddamn tab on their arms.”
The man in the fake uniform eventually walked away and the video stopped, so there’s no word what happened next.
A woman in Tennessee crashed her car into a church and then stabbed her husband in the chest– telling him, “The devil is in me.”
After the woman drove her car through the front doors of the church, she called her husband to come get her. When he found her lying in front of the altar, she stabbed him with a large kitchen knife.
He pulled the knife from his chest, returned to his apartment and waited for police. Officers found his wife and arrested her.
The woman told police she had decided to live for God, and that God told her she should not smoke marijuana all day and night. God said that she only needed to smoke pot to relax at night. She also said she was mad because her husband was “worshipping the NASCAR race at Bristol.”
She then admitted that God wanted her to get in the church, so she drove her car through the front doors. She also said that the devil told her to bring the knife with her.
Zakk Wylde’s guitar has been stolen– it’s the distinctive black-and-white bull’s eye guitar that’s his signature instrument.
Wylde played a set as part of the Experience Hendrix tour in Chicago Friday and put the guitar on his bus, then went back inside to watch the rest of the show. His leather vest and his guitar were gone when he got back.
Surveillance footage shows three men entering the bus after Wylde’s tour manager forgot to lock the door.
Wylde says his tour manager feels “beyond horrendous beyond embarrassed.”
The guitar is one of two with the bull’s eye paint job and Wylde estimates it’s worth $10,000.
