    a proper tribute to band s late vocalist Ronnie James Dio who died from stomach cancer on May 16 However he s aware that performing the songs while other vocalists are behind the microphone re emphasizes the singer s absence I think it will be exciting and a bit sad at the same time Butler told Noisecreep He was a one off great person utterly irreplaceable He was a great guy to know a great friend to me and it was just fantastic working with him For the High Voltage Festival concert in London s Victoria Park Heaven Hell were joined by ex Black Sabbath vocalist Glenn Hughes ex Deep Purple and Masterplan vocalist Jorn Lande who released released a tribute to Dio which features songs by Rainbow Dio and Black Sabbath Before Dio became critically ill with stomach cancer Heaven Hell had booked shows in Europe with Metallica throughout August Six weeks before we were supposed to start rehearsals Ronnie got really really bad and we had to cancel the tour Butler said The medical treatment seemed to be working and we all thought he was getting better It was totally unexpected when his health failed After Dio died on May 16 the band s European promoter suggested Heaven Hell play the High Voltage festival show as a tribute to their fallen frontman He s going to donate all the money to Ronnie s cancer fund Stand Up and Shout Butler said So we said Yeah as long as all the money goes to Ronnie s charity we ll do it Butler performed on and off with Dio since the 1980 Black Sabbath comeback album Heaven and Hell the group s first recording after Ozzy Osbourne was fired from the band While Sabbath s career with Dio started and ended with a band the singer and his bandmates also experienced some major turbulence While 1980 s Heaven and Hell album was a big success tensions developed during the making of the follow up 1981 s Mob Rules and after the December 1982 release of the concert album Live Evil Dio left Black Sabbath and formed his own band Dio He returned to Black Sabbath a decade later to write and record the 1992 album Dehumanizer but at the end of a tour for the record Black Sabbath agreed to open for Ozzy Osbourne in Costa Mesa Calif during what they thought would be Osbourne s farewell tour and have Ozzy join Black Sabbath on stage Dio who strongly disapproved of the idea quit the band and returned to his solo career Then in 2006 Rhino Records asked Butler Dio and Iommi if there were any outtakes they could use for a compilation album Black Sabbath The Dio Years Since there was nothing in storage the members decided to get back together to write three new songs on the album The sessions went so well that the members decided to tour as Heaven Hell and play material from their three albums along with the new songs They released the live CD and DVD Live From Radio City in 2007 then toured with Judas Priest Motà rhead and Testament on the Metal Masters Tour Other tours followed before the members of Heaven Hell decided to return to the studio and record their third full album together The Devil You Know which came out in 2009 The album and the tour that followed were tremendously successful which in retrospect provided closure to the band which went out on one of Dio s legendary high notes It was almost as if fate had a hand in it Butler told Noisecreep He sniffed and paused to recompose himself then concluded Well he s at peace now anyway Geezer s MOG Playlist June 29 2010 Joe 1 Comment Misc Stuff Available now over at mog com is Geezer Butler s exclusive playlist of songs for mog com  These
