Tenacious D Streaming Cover of Dio's Last In Line

(hennemusic) Tenacious D recorded "The Last In Line" for the new Ronnie James Dio tribute album, "This Is Your Life" (due April 1), and the song is now available for streaming.

Tenacious D's Jack Black and Kyle Gass are longtime fans of the legendary singer: the pair recorded the track, "Dio", on their 2001 self-titled debut - Ronnie countered by including the guys to the video for his 2002 single, "Push." Dio himself also appeared in the D's 2006 film, "The Pick Of Destiny", and guested on the song, "Kickapoo", from the companion soundtrack album.

"Dio was the master," says Black. "The Pavarotti of heavy metal vocalists. Soaring melodies and a lion's roar to match. He was also one of the coolest guys I've ever had the honor of meeting. No one could touch his brilliance, on or off the stage."

"It's hard not to pick a great Dio track, but this one appealed to us," adds Gass. "Recording the track was a blast. Our electric guitarist John Konesky shredded a solo. I said, 'That's pretty good, but let's try out my recorder.' Lo and behold it shredded even more and added a unique element to the track. Dio obviously has been a major influence and inspiration for the D. His performance in The Pick of Destiny was a magical moment for us, and we'll always miss him. Rock on, Dio."
