Unreleased Dio Material Exists

Classic Rock Revisited caught up with former AC/DC and Dio drummer Simon Wright to discuss last week's release of The Very Beast of Dio Vol. 2. During the interview we discover that unreleased Dio material does exist but it comes with a big caveat. Here is that portion of the exchange:

Simon: "Electra" was the last track that we recorded with Ronnie and it was going to be on Magica II and III. I think the plan was that we were going to re-record it. It is on The Very Beast of Dio Vol. 2.

There were three, or four, songs that he had been working on for Magica II and III. They were just demos, unfortunately. Wendy is in charge of all that and I am not sure what will happen. At some point, maybe, they will come out. We will have to see what Wendy wants us to do with them.

CRR: It would be tough to do without Ronnie there and only having his voice on tape. Simon: You would have to be careful on how you approached it. You would not want to overstep your bounds. We would have to sit and listen to them and see how far he got with them. We would do it with totally respect and we would have to do it delicately. We will see what happens. It is up to Wendy, as she in charge of that side of things, but we will wait and see. Read the full interview here.
