Heaven - Dio's Widow Wants Heaven & Hell Name Change
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 (10), and his bandmates, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice, subsequently re-grouped for a tribute show in London in July (10).
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."
