It's official - bassist JEFF PILSON will be reuniting with DIO to record the as-yet untitled album. The band will be entering the studio the middle of April, with a tentative June 2004 release date. Pilson is replacing long time basisst JIMMY BAIN, who has left to pursure other projects. Pilson, known for his work in DOKKEN, also appeared on the Strange Highways and Angry Machines Dio albums in the mid 90s. While appearing on the syndicated EDDIE TRUNK radio show Friday night, vocalist RONNIE JAMES DIO said the album would be a cross between Magica and Killing the Dragon with many fast songs. He also said that the Dio catalog will be remastered soon.

Once again the metal musical chairs are on the move. Personally , I'm just glad to know Dio is still making metal! Jimmy has been in that band for a lot of years. However, It still bothers me to see great players disband. I'm sure others share in this feeling. I don' t understand the Motley or Guns break up's either. I realize memories are forever , not men in bands, but it still doesn't make it right for the fan's. Gun's went straight to hell when Steven Adler was fired. Now you have Nikki Sixx , and Traci Guns playing music that suck's more than anything they played in their old band's. It should make us all wonder... who were these guy's impersonating years ago? Metal world be thankful for Dio and others who have not foregotten why they got started. That's all for now!
