Hear ‘N Aid Single To Be Reissued
The Hear ‘N Aid single Stars is to be re-released.
Originally put out at the start of 1986, it was the heavy metal world’s contribution to raising money to help fight famine in Africa. Conceived by Ronnie James Dio, the single featured members of Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Twisted Sister, Quiet Riot, Blue Oyster Cult and Spinal Tap, plus the likes of Ted Nugent ad Yngwie Mamsteen.
Now Dio’s widow Wendy intends to put this out again. She told Rolling Stone: “I’m going to rerelease[Stars because it only ever came out on vinyl and cassette. So it’ll come out on DVD and CD, I have loads of outtakes for the video”.
