Ronnie James Dio's Widow Wants Heaven and Hell to Continue

November 26, 2010 (4:07 am) GMT
Wendy Dio suggested Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice to continue their music career by bonding under different pseudonym.

Ronnie James Dio's widow is urging the surviving members of his band Heaven & Hell to continue working together - under a different name. Dio lost his battle with stomach cancer in May, and his bandmates, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice, subsequently re-grouped for a tribute show in London in July.

The concert was billed as Heaven & Hell's final performance, but Wendy Dio hopes the rockers will continue to work together as long as they pick a different band name. She tells VH1 Radio, "I don't know what they're doing right now. I know that Geezer's been asked several times, and he's just... he took it (Dio's death) very hard. I don't really know what they're doing right now."

"They should do something else, with Vinny, too. I mean, the band was amazing, an amazing band and they should carry on to do something. It won't be called Heaven & Hell but whatever they call it, it will be great, it will be amazing."
