Wendy Dio, wife and longtime manager ofRonnie James Dio, plans to produce a documentary that will coverDio‘s career from his early days withELFto his final project,HEAVEN & HELL.
“We just started shooting,” she said (hear audio below). “We did interviews last week — a few with me, with some technical people, withGeezer Butler[ofBLACK SABBATHandHEAVEN & HELL] — and we will continue that in between the [‘Dio Returns’hologram] tour, we’ll continue on with that. And then, hopefully, that should be out by next year — probably latter part of next year.
“We started withGeezer Butler, who’s obviouslyRonnie‘s best friend fromBLACK SABBATH,” she continued. “And I think we’ll probably do some of the [DIO] band while we are on tour. And other people — all the people close toRonnie, people that played withRonnieor were influenced byRonnieand also his childhood years and going all the way through his time withELF, withRAINBOW, withBLACK SABBATH. And I haveso muchfootage — stuff that people have never seen. I’ve got some Super 8 stuff. I found a whole huge box of stuff — stuff from his childhood, stuff from theRAINBOWdays, behind-the-scenes stuff. I’m getting it now transferred, so that we can actually view it.
