MTV To Publish Ronnie James Dio's Memoir (Top Story)

MTV To Publish Ronnie James Dio's Memoir was a top story in November. Here it is again as we recap 2010: Wendy Dio said this was coming and there is now a deal in place to publish Ronnie James Dio's memoir. The literary agency which brokered the deal sent us the following details:

Rainbow in the Dark: The Autobiography of Ronnie James Dio, the revealing memoir of the heavy metal master, was sold at auction to Jacob Hoye, Senior Director of Publishing at MTV Books, by Shawna Morey, in her first deal at Folio Literary Management, LLC. Renowned for his powerful, hard-driving vocals, Dio, lends that unique voice to recount his extraordinary journey from early pioneer in a burgeoning music movement to his undisputed reign atop the heavy metal landscape. He was born in a time and to a family so far removed from the hard-rocking world he would dominate for nearly five decades, but his unbounded passion and peerless talent broke barriers and legitimized heavy metal as an alternative art form. His creative genius made him a legend.

With nearly five decades of worldwide success and album sales in the tens of millions as the front man of Elf, Rainbow, Dio, Black Sabbath, and, most recently, Heaven & Hell, Ronnie James Dio grabbed the mic, took the stage, and led a movement whose influence resonates to this day. In Rainbow in the Dark, Dio himself will introduce the reader to this incredible life and the over 50 photographs included will provide readers with an unprecedented all-access pass to the rock concert of a lifetime. - more on this story
