RONNIE JAMES DIO To Appear On 'Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny' Soundtrack

Bilboard.com reports that Ronnie James Dio is among the artists that are expected to appear on the soundtrack to the long-awaited TENACIOUS D feature film "Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny", due on November 14 via Epic Records. Other musicians slated to appear on the CD include Meat Loaf (who plays Jack Black's dad) and FOO FIGHTERS mastermind Dave Grohl.

Dio also appears in the movie, offering inspiration to the young Black. "I got to play myself, which was not much of a stretch," he told Billboard.com earlier this year. "It's a tried and true part of a young rebellious rock kid's life, in that his father hates the music that he likes."

"In the scene, [Black] is 10 or 12," he continued. "His father comes in and rails at him and slams the door. On the back of the door is a big poster of me. He starts singing to the poster: 'Dio, tell me what I should do?' And I come alive off the poster, sing a song and reply to him."

"Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny" will open in theaters on November 17.
