Rudy Sarzo Joins Dio

The incestuous relationship between the various “Black Sabbath solo bands” continues with the news that former Ozzy bassist Rudy Sarzo has joined Dio. Here’s a blurb from the official Dio site..
“We’re proud to welcome new bassist Rudy Sarzo to the Dio family. Rudy is known for his work in Quiet Riot, Whitesnake and Ozzy Osbourne, and most recently toured with Yngwie Malmsteen. Rudy joins the band in time for Dio’s European tour, which begins July 16th in Moscow.”
I always liked Rudy, although I would have wished he was on the album. That would make another band that Rudy joins but isn’t on the album (Ozzy with Diary of a Madman, and Whitesnake’s ST 87 album). I’ll catch Dio again when he tours the states – I’ve seen Dio the band probably more times than any other artist live. It’s always a great show.
