RONNIE JAMES DIO: 'A Photographic Memoir' Due In November

Rufus Stone Limited Editions has set a November 30 release date for "Ronnie James Dio - A Photographic Memoir".

Ronnie James Dio was one of rock's most respected and talented frontmen, renowned for his instantly recognizable vocals, lyrics and stagecraft. On May 16, 2010, Ronnie succumbed to cancer and the world of hard rock lost one of its greatest talents.

Renowned music photographer PG Brunelli traveled the world with Ronnie from 1983, photographing him onstage, backstage, at home and in the recording studio. This special, large-format hardback book takes the best of PG's photography and weaves a memoir of Ronnie's life starting onstage at Donington Monsters of Rock in 1983. Featuring unique written contributions from Bruce Dickinson (IRON MAIDEN), Rob Halford (JUDAS PRIEST), Doug Aldrich (DIO, WHITESNAKE) and many of Ronnie's peers, colleagues and fellow professionals, this book has been compiled with the knowledge and approval of Dio's wife/manager, Wendy.

Available in two limited-edition versions, starting at just £40 (plus postage and handling), "Ronnie James Dio - A Photographic Memoir" is released at the end of November 2010. To secure your standard or hardkase version (£150 plus postage and handling) early ordering is essential. £10 from the sale of the standard version and £30 from the sale of the hardkase edition will be donated to the Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund, in honor of Ronnie James Dio.
