In other Dio news, Ronnie’s widow (and manager) Wendy has been talking about reissuing the ‘Magica’ album from 2000, with bonus tracks, including a new song which Ronnie nearly completed before his death.

According to an interview with Classic Rock magazine, former Dio guitarist Craig Goldy, the band were were working on tracks for a new Dio album just before Ronnie died. “We did almost finish one song.” he said, “theĀ  lyrics deal with what Ronnie was going through at the time, when he was battling cancer. So now they are very emotional. It’s hard to listen without a lump in your throat.”
