    Doesn't mean Tony Iommi is going to tour playing this stuff for me and the few people who have enjoyed this era.

    We're talking about legends who have a whole catalog of songs to choose from. They have, what? 15 songs or so they can play each concerts.

    You really need to give your head a shake if you think they're gonna drop War Pigs or Heaven and Hell to play It Feels Good to Me.

    I'm sorry if reality pisses you off.

    I've learned a long time ago that you need to take anything artists say with a grain of salt. Twice as much if it comes from Ozzy or Tony.

    Friendly advice: so should you.

    Forget it, it's not happening. There will be no Martin/Gillan songs played on tour, ever again by these guys. It just wouldn't make any sense.

      But then I woke up.


      Well, back to the topic then. I think that a memorial concert with some legendary artists is a good idea, but I'm not too sure of another tribute album. Oh, unless every artist does a different type of version of the RJD classics (such as an acoustic) or a completely new track like Jorn, but that wouldn't really make sense I guess.

        I think this is very cool the tribute concert & CD to benefit the cancer fund & I hope like was originally announced that the concert becomes an annual event. Can't wait for the details to be released & I am hoping to be able to go to LA for this in March.

          If another tribute concert goes down in LA I'll be there. Couldn't make London and the vast majority of Dio's fans reside in the US so an LA gig would be more fitting. However instead of just Sabbath it should include guys from Dio the band as well as maybe a song by his cousins band The Rods as well, Metal Will Never Die, anyone?

          Guys like Craig Goldy and Jimmy Bain and Simon Wright have just as much right to be there as Iommi and gang afterall. I'm not such a big fan of guys who really had nothing to do with Dio personally performing just cause they looked up to however. I don't want to see James Hetfield butcher Heaven and Hell for instance just because he's a big name who respected Dio.

          Do the gig, record a live album/DVD with everything included from it and let it be after that. I think that would be the best Dio tribute for his fans. Make all the proceeds go towards the stand up and shout cancer fund from here till forever and you'll have done a fitting tribute.

            Not sure that Dio would agree with this statement.

              Iommi and Butler are never, ever going to play Martin/Gillan era songs. These albums do not have a decent enough following to be worth revisiting and even the guys themselves (Iommi, Butler) do not seem to care about this material in the least.
              Now that's not entirely true. Geezer may not care, but in the band interview on the Last Supper DVD, Iommi does say that there are albums from those years he thinks deserve more attention, and he even mentions Headless Cross as an example. The fact that Iommi owns the rights to the IRS catalogue and is lining them up for a Rerelease, indicates that he cares at least a little bit

              Anyway I don't see what anyone has against this tribute concert. It's all in celebration of Dio and it's all for a very good cause. It's not like they are lining their own coffers here.

                  I guess that's why the band Dio toured sooooo extensively in the US in the last years, and almost never set foot in Europe. Hmm.

                        After a year and no further talk about it I'd say probably not, unfortunately.

                            Finally saw some news on the Dio tribute LP - it's coming out on 4/1 & looks like they got an awesome lineup of musicians for this tribute CD - Can't wait to see what Metallica does with the Rainbow Medley - here's the story on Blabbermouth - http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/met...tribute-album/

                              Im mostly looking forward to this.. particularly Glenn singing Catch the Rainbow that should be about the coolest thing on this release.. Its debatable how cool the Metallica cover will be depending on the number of Yeah's that are heard within the 9 minute epic. Jaymz is guilty of ridiculousing every song lately with too many yeah's.. But they do know how to weave a decent tribute medley (eg: Mercyful Fate). I already know the Adrenaline Mob version of M.R. lags (I really dont like them), and Im conflicted over Scorps... great song.. hope they treat it well & don't lame it up...
