DJ JC Green of Metal Messiah Radio‘s “Heavy Metal Thunder” show recently conducted an interview with powerhouse American vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens (DIO DISCIPLES, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, BEYOND FEAR, JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH). You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
DIO DISCIPLES is the new project featuring former DIO members Simon Wright (drums), Craig Goldy (guitar), Scott Warren (keyboards) and Rudy Sarzo alongside singers Tim “Ripper” Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, BEYOND FEAR, JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH) and Toby Jepson (LITTLE ANGELS, GUN). The band pays tribute to the legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio and is fully supported by Dio‘s widow/manager, Wendy, who recently posted that “there will never be another Ronnie, but we want to keep his music alive and hope you will support the band and become one of the DIO DISCIPLES.”
Sarzo was unable to take part in DIO DISCIPLES‘ recent European tour and was temporarily replaced by James Lomenzo (MEGADETH, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, WHITE LION).
