“We have a lot of [artists] who are working on [their contributions to the tribute album],” Wendy commented at this past weekend’s Icons & Idols-Rock ‘N’ Roll Auction. “Metallica has already finished theirs for us and Anthrax and Glenn Hughes [have completed theirs as well]. Rob Halford‘s working on it. I think Alice Cooper‘s working on it. Motörhead, [in] January we’ll get theirs. So we’ll have a whole classic CD ready next year, and so I’m hoping to then ask the younger bands to do a tribute to Ronnie as well, so we can do two CDs: a classic one and the younger bands.”
On which “young bands” she’d like to see get involved, she adds, “I haven’t approached anyone, but who I would pick would definitely be Korn, Avenged Sevenfold… Anyone that’s been influenced by Ronnie or Ronnie’s music, and I think it would be a great tribute and it would be great fun to do, too.”
This sounds like it could be absolutely amazing. Someone get Jonny D and M Shadows on the phone!
