Three years ago today, May 16th, 2010, metal legend RONNIE JAMES DIO (ELF, RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL) passed away at the age of 67.
Metal Shock Finland's Blackdiamond recently spoke with legendary ACCEPT guitarist Wolf Hoffmann, who while discussing Ronnie James Dio, expressed the following: “Not only was he an awesome singer, everybody worshipped him, he was also a very nice person to be around; gentleman like. We toured with him in 1986, did a whole North American run, opening up for him. He was always very generous and let us use the stage, gave us sound checks and all that kind of stuff. I remember it was a very pleasant tour. He wasn’t a guy who would hang around all the time - he would do his thing and keep to himself. Then we’d exchange pleasantries and say hi, then we had a beer together. That’s the extent of what we do when we open up for other bands, but he was very nice.“ Listen to the complete interview here.
