    There is also suppose to be a documentary about Ronnie and his music career, but no news on it yet, when the book comes out I'll be buying it for sure.

I was hoping the book would be published not too long after his passing to commemorate his life while we all were still mourning his passing. It's been Years now.
    I took it hard too. I remember when it happened and the day before there were rumours of his passing. And Wendy said it was bullshit. I was relieved. The next day my sister calls me and said the singer of Black Sabbath is dead. I knew right away. I was in utter shock. I took the day off work

    "I will definitely allow lyrics to stir the imagination of people the way they like it to work. I never use themes to writemyessay on vocal lessons. I like to remain untrained and keep my essence and individuality." - Ronnie James Dio

    I really hope you're wrong... but I guess it's quite possible you're not :(

    Actually, there is a book called 'Light Beyond The Black' by author Martin Popoff that covers his solo years that was released in 2005 I believe. Popoff is arguably one of the best hard rock journalists out there currently. If his books on Sabbath and Rush are any indication, I'm sure the Dio book would be worth checking out as well.

    Oh, I was beaten to it.
    Thank you both Gentlemen, I will check that out and if it is available I will buy it, I have a bunch of books on my favorite bands and singers, but not one of the Great, Late, Ronnie James Dio.

    Yes, RJD was true to his beliefs, he definitly would not "sell out"... I think that's ultimatly what endeared his fans to him, he was the real deal... I remember he said Rainbow In The Dark the song was too "commercial" sounding to him... I love the song but respect his opinion... I think for RJD, leaving Rainbow, where he had to contend with an insecure domineering personality in Blackmore, to play with BS, where the members, are just regular down to Earth guys.. good guys... even Ozzy is beloved because he's just a fan on stage singing with the band, that's what he's always reminded me of... just a regular Johnny Joe... actually wished Dio had done a few ballads with BS like Rainbow Eyes, which is one of my favorite songs, it's so beautiful, alot of people don't realize what a genuinly beautiful voice he had...
    My two favorite singers of all time is Ozzy Osbourne and Ronnie James Dio, I regret it so much not being able to see Ronnie with Sabbath, no one expected he would leave us so soon, I thought I would eventually get to see him, either with Sabbath or if he did anything solo. But very unfortunately I didn't.

    God rest his soul and may he R.I.P.
