Former DIO Guitarist TRACY G Schedules California Appearances

Former DIO guitarist Tracy "G" Grijalva will take part in a performance and clinic on November 21 at D.O.B. Sound Recording A& Rehearsals in Santa Fe Springs, California. The show is scheduled for 2 p.m. Admission is free. He will also perform on December 11 at T. Phillip's Alehouse And Grill in La Verne, California.

Flyers for both events can be viewed below.

Tracy left DIO in 1999 after he claimed he was "asked to play in a dual-guitar situation" in Ronnie's band. According to a posting on Tracy's web site, DIO was "looking for more of a Ritchie Blackmore style . . . and wanted [Tracy] to step back and just play rhythm guitar. That's when [Tracy] knew it was time to leave, freeing him to more diligently pursue his home studio projects."
