DIO DISCIPLES: New Audio Interview, Performance Footage Posted Online
- Nov. 22, 2012
Drummer Simon Wright (AC/DC, DIO, DIO DISCIPLES, UFO, RHINO BUCKET) was interviewed on the latest edition of "Rich Davenport's Rock Show". The program can be streamed using the Mixcloud player below. (Note: The Wright interview begins around the 18-minute mark.)
Fan-filmed video footage of DIO DISCIPLES — the project featuring former DIO members Wright, Craig Goldy (guitar) and Scott Warren (keyboards) — performing on November 21 at The Dead Horse Cantina & Music Hall in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania can be seen below.
The group, which pays tribute to legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio (BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW, DIO, HEAVEN & HELL) and is fully supported by Dio's widow/manager, Wendy, currently consists of the following musicians:
Commented Goldy: "After Ronnie's passing and a lengthy mourning period, Wendy Dio and the band that was left behind have decided it was time to honor and keep the memory and legacy of Ronnie James Dio alive in the most respectful way possible!
"There is something special that happens when a group of people gather together with the same heart, mind and spirit as one another... and that is what happens every night we (the DIO DISCIPLES) perform! I never know when... but I know that it will happen because it always does... some time during the concert, the audience and the band connect and become as one!
"And with the large speaker system, lights and special performances by past members of AC/DC, JUDAS PRIEST, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN and LYNCH MOB... you don't want to rely on all the crappy little cell phone recordings that look and sound like shit posted on YouTube!
"I've never lied about anything to any DIO fan and I'm not about to start now! Every time we perform there's always several very special moments that just can't be defined into words! You just have to trust me and come experience it for yourselves! And I hope you do!"
