Dio's All Star Metal Project 'Stars' Being Reissued
As Rolling Stone reports, the result was the song "Stars," featuring members of Mötley Crüe, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Blue Öyster Cult, and even Spinal Tap. The group – which called itself Hear N' Aid – also enlisted Ted Nugent and Yngwie Malmsteen to record the track and put out an album, "Stars," featuring live cuts by Kiss, Rush, Dio and more.
Due to contract differences with the labels, the song and album weren't released until New Year's Day, 1986, well after the success of its predecessors and it has since been largely forgotten.
But Ronnie's widow/manager Wendy Dio wants to fix that. Read about that here.
