RONNIE JAMES DIO: 'A Life In Vision: 1975 - 2009' Photo Book Due In December

"A Life In Vision" is a photographic journey of one of the most admired and respected rock vocalists of all time — Ronnie James Dio.

Due on December 7, this beautiful collection of photos was taken by New Jersey photographer Frank White. They capture Dio from his first-ever U.S. show with RAINBOW in 1975 through to 2009, just a few months before he lost his fight with cancer in May 2010. This collection covers Dio's career with BLACK SABBATH, his own band DIO and HEAVEN & HELL.

Throughout the decades, Frank White captured Ronnie on stage in both the USA and Europe. Frank also took many shots of Ronnie relaxing off stage; at TV studios as well as dedicated shoots with his band.

"A Life In Vision" also includes White's recollections of working with Dio as he recalls the many times shared in his company from the other side of the lens.
