(Rock Radio) Ronnie James Dio's wife and manager, Wendy, has hit out at bands releasing "tribute" albums to her late husband 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."

Manowar and Magic Circle Entertainment are releasing a compilation CD this week - Magic A Tribute To Ronnie James Dio featuring various artists. - Wendy is not the only one who is upset
