Ronnie James Dio in ‘The Pick of Destiny’ – Musician Movie Cameos
It comes as no surprise that Tenacious D‘s Jack Black and Kyle Gass worship the same musical legends as we do. In their 2006 feature film, ‘The Pick of Destiny,’ there are cameos from Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl as Satan behind the drums and Meat Loaf as a devoutly religious, rock ‘n’ roll hating father, but the most celebrated appearance is that of Ronnie James Dio.
The man who possessed one of metal’s biggest voices boasted his iconic pipes in ‘The Pick of Destiny,’ providing guidance to the young version of Jack Black’s character through a poster that comes to life. Do yourself a favor and listen to Dio’s vocal performance from ‘The Pick of Destiny.’ It’s just one more reason why we miss Ronnie so much.
