“It’s been a real pleasure to work with Ronnie‘s family and the people at Niji on this project.

“I was a fan of Ronnie‘s very early and owned all the original RAINBOW records. I was fortunate enough to see him out in front of SABBATHRonnie James Dio was one of the greatest live performers I have ever seen.”
