According to an interview with Dio guitarist Craig Goldy some unreleased material developed by the late Ronnie James Dio may be recorded with former Judas Priest and Iced Earth vocalist Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens.
Jeb: Is there any more music still in the vaults?
Craig: There is going to be some unreleased material come out. Wendy has given Rudy Sarzo and I permission to go through Ronnie’s computer and find music. We are going to get together with the Dio band and perform with Ripper Owens. I am really looking forward to that. It has been a long time since I have felt proud to be a part of something.
I think that Ripper is the heir apparent to Ronnie James Dio so you’ll excuse me if I have a metalgasm.
All hail his name m/
