RUMOUR: Ripper and the Dio band?

According to Joe Siegler from Black-Sabbath.com, TIM "RIPPER" OWENS (HAIL!, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, BEYOND FEAR, ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH) will be singing in place of RONNIE JAMES DIO (BLACK SABBATH, DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, RAINBOW, ELF) on some unreleased Dio material the Dio band is going to be recording. Apparently bassist Rudy Sarzo and guitarist Craig Goldy were given permission by Wendy Dio to go through Ronnie's computer looking for music they can record.

That's strange...Ripper piggybacking on someone else's name/success. Guess there's a first time for everything.

Used to be a fan of his voice but not really anymore. I'd rather them not release Dio music without Dio.

Post of the week!!

They should've gotten Jorn to record the songs. Ripper's a good singer but if the songs were meant to be recorded with Ronnie they should at least get someone who can sing simliar to him.

Completely unnecessary and disrespectful. This is just another reason why I've lost a shit-ton of respect for Wendy Dio since RJD's passing.

Also, if they insist on doing this, why Ripper?

Ripper will always be one of my favourite singers, but he's the wrong guy for this.

And yeah, this is nearly as bad as Vinnie mashing fragments of unreleased Dime solos together for that Nickelback song.

I think they should release any nearly-completed songs Ronnie had recorded on a compilation with the various Japanese bonus tracks and b-sides that remain unreleased everywhere else then stick to releasing any of the top-drawer live recordings they have that we don't.

When did that happen?

I could understand if the rest of the band wants to continue to do music, but they should start a new band and write new songs with the ripper.

Aren't there any unreleased songs with Dio that were recorded for the new album, they can release that.
