Simon Wright Remembers Ronnie James Dio

(Classic Rock) Simon Wright admits he still thinks of Ronnie James Dio every day. The iconic Dio, Heaven and Hell, Black Sabbath, Rainbow and Elf singer died three years ago today after a battle with stomach cancer.

But Wright who left AC/DC to join Dio in 1990, left in 1991 then returned from 1998 until the band's end in 2010 says he'll never forget his old boss.

He tells Metal Shock Finland: "I always found him to be a real gentleman: really smart, a really funny guy. When I got the opportunity to join his band I jumped at the chance.

"He was a fantastic person. Not only a brilliant singer and songwriter, but as a person, considerate and humble. He was the boss as well he could crack the whip when he wanted to.

"It just got better every year. I think about him every day." more on this story
