ROCK’N’ROLL CHILDREN born in 2010, by an idea of Shadows Of Steel’s vocalist Wild Steel. Originally, the band was called “Steel Light”, and with first line-up, they played some gigs around Ligurian area, in Italy.

Unfortunately on may 16th of the same year, R. J. DIO passed away, so they decided to stop recordings, as respect to his memory.
In 2014, Wild Steel restarted ROCK’N’ROLL CHILDREN with a renewed line-up, including Olaf Thorsen on guitars (Vision Divine, Labyrinth) and the band was ready for some new live gigs. At the same time, they entered again in studio, to complete recordings of DIO tribute tracks.
