It's time to get heavy with a fresh spin on some DIO classics.

BMG and Niji Entertainment Group Inc. partnered to reissue DIO's 1996-2004 studio albums: Angry Machines (1996), Magica (2000), Killing the Dragon (2002), and Master of the Moon (2004). The new versions feature rare and never-before-released live and studio bonus tracks, newly-remastered by longtime DIO collaborator Wyn Davis with updated artwork from frequent DIO designer Marc Sasso.

With all the trips I make to Los Angeles, I wish I was out there this weekend, because something fantastic is about to take place...

An intimate live concert event, proceeds Dimebash 2016 will benefit the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, an organization that funds cancer research, cancer screenings and various cancer programs while supporting families that have loved ones suffering from the disease. As of this writing, tickets are nearly sold-out - but thanks to Rob Evanoff and my extended Rock Father Family in LA, we're planning to get you some coverage right here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine!
