I think we have our answer...and thank god they have given the band a "name"

Former DIO members Rudy Sarzo (bass), Simon Wright (drums), Craig Goldy (guitar) and Scott Warren (keyboards) will join forces with singers Tim "Ripper" Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, BEYOND FEAR, JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH) and Toby Jepson (LITTLE ANGELS, GUN) to play a number of shows in Europe under the name DIO DISCIPLES.

Commented Ronnie James Dio's widow and manager Wendy: "There will never be another Ronnie, but we want to keep his music alive and hope you will support the band and become one of the DIO DISCIPLES.

"We will [announce] the U.K./European tour dates as they are confirmed, and we are planning some U.S. dates also.

"Hope to see you at one of the shows."

There are times he sounds spot-on like Coverdale!! Covers Dio well, too.

Finally heard the Vocalist Nils Patrick Johansson when web cruising some weeks back and found him to be simply amazing: he has a power Vocalize range in the key of DIO & plus his own uniqueness, too. Your right Mr. Metal...'Goldy & Sarzo need to broaden their search and check out Johansson & Lande. It's only fair!
mrmetal wrote:Ripper is a great singer, but there are others out there that can sing Dio much better. Nils Patrik Johansson and Jorn Lande come to mind.

Why did they pick Tim Owens?

I don't dislike the idea and I am very much in favor of what Goldy and Sarzo are doing. I want to hear the music that was being written before Ronnie passed away. But they could have selected a better fit for the music.

Nils Patrik Johansson sounds so much like Dio, it is uncanny.

HEAR RONNIE JAMES DIO'S ROCK ROOTS ON 'AND BEFORE ELF...THERE WERE ELVES' RELEASE:
Over the years, legendary singer Ronnie James Dio fronted some of the most popular/enduring hard rock/heavy metal bands of all-time, including Rainbow, Black Sabbath/Heaven & Hell, and Dio. But before all of these bands, there was Elf. Described as a "Rock/Honky Tonk/Blues band" a forthcoming release, 'And Before Elf…There Were Elves' will prove that Ronnie could easily handle other rock-related styles. Released on October 11th via the Niji Entertainment Group, 'And Before Elf' will feature twelve previously unreleased tracks (all from 1971), comprised of both live in the studio and live on stage tracks. The album will feature a striking Lenticular/3D/Hologram cover, that when you turn it, you will see two alternating images ­ Ronnie from the first Elf LP, as well as a vintage group shot from 1971. And although these recordings are 40 years old, the sonic quality still passes the test, as longtime Dio engineer Wyn Davis remastered the original tapes.
Formed in 1967 in Cortland, New York, The Elves also featured other members that would carve a niche for themselves in the hard rock world! Guitarist David "Rock" Feinstein (Dio's cousin) would go on to front the Rods. Elf would last for a trio of albums, before Ronnie exited the group in 1975, to co-form Rainbow with ex-Deep Purple guitarist Ritchie Blackmore.
Ronnie James Dio always had the golden touch as a masterful singer and frontman. And upon hearing 'And Before Elf…There Were Elves,' you'll discover he possessed his one-of-a-kind voice from the very beginning of his career.

"And Before Elf…There Were Elves" Track Listing: 1. You Shook Me 2. Stay With Me 3. Four Day Creep 4. Buckingham Blues 5. Wakeup Sunshine 6. Driftin' 7. Smile For Me Lady 8. You Felt The Same Way 9. Simple Man 10. Drown Me In The River 11. Cold Ramona 12.. Little Queenie.

WHOA, this is NOT cool.

They should remaster the old catalog. Come up with some extras for the remasters.

Release the Spectrum video on DVD, Hear N Aid The Sessions on DVD, Time Machine on DVD, etc.

PLUS there are tons of live pro audio of shows they recorded over the years. There are plenty of things they could put out that would thrill the whole Dio community without doing something weak like this.

Wendy is starting to deviate from the plans that her and Ronnie made before he died.

Cool. I can't wait to hear that remastered stuff. Elf and the pre-Elf days had some very groovin' riffs for that time.
