Simon Wright Remembers Ronnie James Dio
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
