Dio Disciples Guitarist Explains Money Isn't Motivation For Project

(Classic Rock) Craig Goldy insists the Dio Disciples project isn't all about money and says he can prove it. The guitarist is part of the tribute act to the late Ronnie James Dio after having been a member of the Dio band for three stints starting with 1987′s Dream Evil era.

Dio Disciples, also featuring Tim 'Ripper' Owens, Scott Warren, Simon Wright, Bjorn Englen and Oni Logan, were formed in 2011 with the blessing of the ex Black Sabbath singer's widow Wendy.

Asked what he thinks of fans who disapprove of the project, Goldy tells GuitarWorld: "I understand it. Ronnie was so revered that there are going to be people who are apprehensive of what we're doing."

He continues: "It's really not a for-profit thing. If people think it's a for-profit thing, I have no problem with them checking my bank account balance. We're barely squeaking by over our expenses. It's very expensive to do this kind of thing.

"There is money involved, but money is not the priority. The priority is to make sure Ronnie's memory is kept alive." And Goldy believes the positive intentions shine through
