Dio Hologram Motives Revealed By Disciple


(Classic Rock) Dio Disciples guitarist Craig Goldy has described the hologram of Ronnie James Dio as a way of giving the late icon back to his fans - rather than attempt to raise the dead.

The projection of the vocalist was debuted at the Wacken festival in Germany earlier this year, and his widow Wendy confirmed plans were being made to make it part of a festival set in 2017.

Goldy - who played four stints with Dio between 1986 and the singer's death in 2010 - tells Loudwire: "What we tried to do as a gift to the fans was to give them him.

"It wasn't like we were trying to raise him from the dead. We know he's gone, but he's not gone. People love him because of the kind of person he was. Ronnie brought that 'Oh my God' moment, so that's what we tried to do in a similar way, just to keep that alive." Read more here.
