DIO DISCIPLES to tour
 
Tim "Ripper" Owens - vocals
Toby Jepson - vocals :confused:
Craig Goldy - guitar
Rudy Sarzo - bass
Simon Wright - drums
Scott Warren - keyboards

Wendy Dio: "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 post the UK/European tour dates as they are confirmed, and we are planning some US dates also. Hope to see you at one of the shows."

Is there a more pathetic human being on the planet than Ripper?

Also, I'm shocked he was available to tour and capitalize off of someone else's work.

Coulda been a cool idea with a decent singer.

Man fuck all yall. Ripper is perfect for this.

I agree. And seeing as the UK will be included in the tour, I expect I'll probably go.

However, "this" isn't a good idea to be honest. Especially as the plan is to then record an album using left-over ideas salvaged from RJD's computer.

I don't get all the Ripper hate, either. He's just doing what any of us with his talent would do. Is it his fault Judas Priest, Iced Earth and Yngwie hired him to sing for them? He's tried doing solo material and no one gave it the time of day. I don't blame him for going where the money is.

"Sorry, I can't sing for your band. Some guy on the internet might think it shows a lack of integrity."

That idea can drink a glass of cancer.

I get all the reissues, live albums, books and whatever else they plan on releaseing posthumosly with Dio. But the fans will forever keep Dio's music alive, we don't need to have this at all.

I never had a problem with him joining bands like Iced Earth and Yngwie. Plenty of singers join bands who need a singer. The problem is he's never been in anything that's lasted, so it looks like he just hops around taking pay cheques.

But other things are different. Like joining a money-making tribute band on top of starting a covers band and playing several covers in solo shows.

Should've been this guy...
