BIOGRAPHY

     Some fans figured that with the passing of Ronnie James Dio in 2010, one of metal's greatest voices of all-time had been silenced forever. But Dio's music continues to live on, and many of his friends and/or former band mates are making sure of it, as they have united as Dio Disciples – a concert celebration of the former singer of Black Sabbath/Heaven & Hell, Rainbow, Elf (and successful/respected solo artist). And over the past few years, Dio Disciples has been celebrating the amazing music of Ronnie James Dio throughout the world.

     Dio Disciples have issued the following statement: "We could NEVER replace Ronnie and that is not our intention - there will ever only be one RJD. Dio Disciples is a celebration of the music and legacy of the greatest singer in the world, Ronnie James Dio. The band just finished a European tour that was very well received. At times, there were tears, the crowd sang along and it was a great honoring and remembrance of the incredible music of Ronnie James Dio."

     In concert, the band (which is comprised of singers Tim "Ripper" Owens and Oni Logan, guitarist Craig Goldy, bassist Bjorn Englen, keyboardist Scott Warren, and drummer Simon Wright) touches upon almost every era of Dio's stellar career, as you can expect to hear faithful and heavy renditions of all the Ronnie James Dio classics.

     Long considered one of heavy metal's greatest all-time vocalists, Ronnie James Dio has sung and co-written some of the most classic compositions within the realm of hard rock/heavy metal - "Man on the Silver Mountain," "Stargazer," "Long Live Rock 'n' Roll," "Neon Knights," "Heaven and Hell," "The Mob Rules," "Holy Diver," "Rainbow in the Dark," and "The Last in Line," among countless others. Ronnie also co-founded the all-star Hear 'n Aid project in 1985 (spawning the hit song, "Stars"), which helped raise one million dollars for famine relief in Africa within a year.
     And there is no denying the impressive resumes of all of the Dio Disciples members. Tim "Ripper" Owens has fronted Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Hail!, and Yngwie Malmsteen's band, Oni Logan has fronted Lynch Mob, Bjorn Englen has been a member of Yngwie Malmsteen's band, while Craig Goldy, Simon Wright, and Scott Warren all played in various incarnations of Dio and/or Heaven & Hell. Additionally, Goldy was a member of Rough Cutt and Giuffria, Wright was a member of AC/DC and UFO, and Warren played with Type O Negative.
     The power and timeless quality of Ronnie James Dio's music continues to live on. Dio Disciples are helping keep the flame burning brightly, as they will continue to spread the word through sold out concerts the world over.
