Scorpions recording Rainbow classic for Ronnie James Dio tribute album

The Scorpions are recording a cover of the Rainbow classic, “Temple Of The King”, as part of the upcoming Ronnie James Dio tribute album.

“We are taking two days out of our tough schedule and recording that song,” guitarist Matthias Jabs tells Classic Rock Revisited.

The project will feature artists performing tracks from the singer’s extensive catalog, including material originally released by Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Dio.

Ronnie James Dio died of stomach cancer on May 16, 2010 at the age of 67.

The Scorpions recently released “MTV Unplugged - Scorpions Live In Athens”, a set compiled from three concerts in Athens, Greece at the city’s Lycabettus Theatre.

The German rockers begin their 2014 live dates on March 7 in Madrid, Spain.
