Wendy Dio To Finish Ronnie James Dio's Autobiography; Expecting 2019 Release

March 19, 2018

Although he was unable to complete it before his death in 2010, Ronnie James Dio had been working on his autobiography up until his days singing in Rainbow. Now after having a meeting with publishers, his widow Wendy Dio intends on finishing what he started.

Wendy intends on including interviews with her husband's bandmates, touring staff, bands that have toured with him, colleagues, and artists inspired by his work. The book will also include explainations to song lyrics and possibly a medieval-themed illustrated book of lyrics. Dio believes the book will be due out some time in 2019.

The autobiography comes as another project Wendy has done in memory of her husband since his death. The Ronnie James Dio hologram left fans divided once it was unveiled at the Wacken Open Air music festival in 2016. Since then it has gone on tour with Dio's Disciples playing along with it throughout Europe.
