Dio’s Resurrection Is Causing Controversy
Last year, the news of Ronnie James Dio being resurrected in hologram form took the rock world by storm. Not only that, but the initial reaction was quite positive. Wendy Dio, widow and ex-manager of Ronnie, is essentially the driving force behind this whole project. She has expressed many times that a hologram is what Ronnie would’ve wanted.
With all of that said, we are just less than a month away from the hologram embarking on a world tour and as we’re winding down to the grand debut, fans are slowly becoming more and more outraged. Here are just some of the reactions to the whole ordeal.
As you can see, people left and right are accusing Wendy Dio of trying to capitalize on Ronnie’s legacy. Of course, this criticism is nothing new. Wendy has had to defend this project many times before, but with the criticism being at an all time high, you can’t help but wonder how it will all impact the tour.
