(Classic Rock) Ronnie Romero says that "it's not a good idea" to sing in the style of previous Rainbow singers. The Chilean-born Lords Of Black vocalist, who was personally chosen for the role by guitar icon Ritchie Blackmore last year, thinks fans appreciate him more for being true to himself onstage - rather than copying former frontmen such as Ronnie James Dio, Graham Bonnet and Joe Lynn Turner.

He tells Metal Shock Finland: "I feel really good with my job. I tried to make justice, not just to the songs, but all the singers. I just try to sing the songs in my own way and my own style and I think the people appreciate that. I'm not just a copy of the other singers, I prefer to sing like Ronnie Romero singing those songs.

"I think the people prefer that - I think they don't like seeing a guy or pay for a ticket to hear a guy try to sing like Ronnie James Dio. It's not a good idea." Read more here.
