Wendy Dio: Heaven & Hell Should Play Together Again — With a Different Name
Ronnie James Dio‘s widow Wendy Dio is one selfless dame, and we mean that in the most endearing way possible. Heaven & Hell can no longer exist in their natural state after Ronnie’s death from stomach cancer, but Wendy told VH1 Radio that she supports and encourages the remaining members — who made up the core of Black Sabbath — working together again under a different moniker.
“I don’t know what they’re doing right now. I know that Geezer [Butler]’s been asked several times, and he’s just … he took it very hard,” Wendy said. “I don’t really know what they’re doing right now. They should do something else, with Vinny [Appice], 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.”
Dio’s performance at the 2009 Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany can be seen on the ‘Neon Nights’ DVD, which is out now.
