You can now watch the 23 minute chat below. In a recent interview withRocksalt.mx,Peschspoke about a new song she has written as a tribute to legendary heavy metal singerRonnie James Dio. "I was always such a big [Dio] fan, like so many other people, [I] just adored him and loved him," she said. "But there's one song, we will be working on that and I think it will be wonderful. But I first want to show it toWendy Dio[Ronnie's wife/manager] and let her listen to it, so that's one thing. I kind of want to make many versions of that song, I think it's beautiful and I like it a lot . . . It's called'Hero'and it has a beautiful melody and I would like to make many versions of it, like an acoustic version and a full-blown band version and maybe an orchestral version… and we are just working on it. I definitely want to take care of that one — that song's nice. But first I want to letWendylisten to it. I'm really hoping… but I'm sure she will like it a lot. Every time everybody is listening to it in the studio everybody is crying and so - wow - so touching."
