Original DIO Members Planning Live Dates

Original DIO Members Planning Live Dates

DEF LEPPARD/ex-DIO guitarist Vivian Campbell has revealed the following news via his Facebook page:

"I met up with the original DIO band guys, (drummer) Vinny Appice, (bassist) Jimmy Bain and (keyboardist) Claude Schnell again last night. Now that I've brushed-up on how to play those solos again, we're planning to jam some more and plan to do some gigs, too. We found a great singer who can really do justice to Ronnie's (James Dio) parts."

A previous message from Campbell stated: "I had so much fun playing "Rainbow In The Dark" with STEEL PANTHER that I've organized a get-together with my old DIO bandmates to jam some more of the old songs. I've been listening to the records trying to remember how the songs and solos go."

He then posted, "Well, that was a hoot playing the old songs with the DIO guys again. I even broke out the original black Les Paul that I recorded them on (needs a re-fret really bad!). All in all, it sounded great and now we're thinking of taking it a stage further."

Stay tuned for updates, and find Vivian Campbell on Facebook at this location.
