"Ronnie James Dio: A Photographic Memoir"; New Book Out In November

Ronnie James Dio, one of heavy metal's all-time greatest singers, died less than a year after being diagnosed with stomach cancer on May 16th, 2010. He was 67. With his powerful signature vocals and doom-laden lyrics, Ronnie James Dio fronted several iconic bands during his career: Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath , Heaven & Hell and, of course, DIO.

Renowned music photographer PG Brunelli travelled the world with Ronnie from 1983, photographing him onstage, backstage, at home and in the recording studio. This special, large format hardback book takes the best of PG's photography and weaves a memoir of Ronnie's life starting onstage at Donington Monsters of Rock in 1983. Together with unique written contributions from Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford, Doug Aldrich and many of his peers, colleagues and fellow professionals. This photographic memoir has been compiled with the knowledge and approval of Ronnies wife, Wendy.

"Ronnie James Dio: A Photographic Memoir" is due out on November 7th.
