On April 1, Rhino will release ‘This Is Your Life,’ a tribute album to Ronnie James Dio that will raise funds for his Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund. As of today (Feb. 24), the first single from the record, a cover of ‘Starstruck’ by Motorhead with Biff Byford of Saxon, is now streaming.

You can find the track over at Yahoo! Music, which also has this quote from Byford about the song. “The ‘Lady Starstruck’ harks back to a time of groupies and rock ‘n’ roll excess of the ’70s and ’80s. This song has great riffs, and great vocals to go along with it, so it was really cool to sing the song and be a part of the compilation.”

‘This Is Your Life’ features 13 covers of songs from throughout Ronnie James Dio’s career, from his time in Rainbow and Black Sabbath to his eponymous band, Dio. In addition to Motorhead, the Scorpions, Metallica and Rob Halford of Judas Priest are featured.

Dio’s widow, Wendy, will throw a pre-release listening party on March 17 at the Avalon in Hollywood. The party will coincide with the fund’s 3rd Annual Awards Gala. Visit the fund’s website for details.
