What is the content of Sabbath – The Dio Years book?
Apparently, the book is going to tell some stories from the Dio-era. Black Sabbath replaced Ozzy Osbourne with Ronnie James Dio back in 1980. They came up with an amazing album ‘Heaven and Hell’ with Dio on the vocals while nobody was expecting Sabbath to return in such a beautiful way. You can learn more about that period with this new book.
The book is going to include interviews of Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler. Documenting the band’s adventure with Ronnie James Dio after firing Ozzy Osbourne, Sabbath – The Dio Years will feature huge memorabilia and some unseen photos. Black Sabbath members Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Bill Ward, Vinnie Appice, and late Dio’s wife Wendy Dio contributed to this book.
