Ronnie James Dio ‘Dreamers Never Die’ Doc TV Premiere Next Month
“Dio: Dreamers Never Die”, the career-spanning documentary about the life of Ronnie James Dio, is finally coming to TV (Showtime) on December 1. You’ll also be able to stream it on the Showtime app!
The doc was authorized by Dio’s widow and longtime manager Wendy Dio (who also served as executive-producer) and looks at Dio’s career; back to his time as a ’50s doo-wop crooner, to his rock band Elf, and Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, to replacing Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath, before starting Dio.
As you’d expect, the documentary is full of never-before-seen footage and personal photos, and lots of scenes with family, friends, and rockstars: Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Glenn Hughes, Vinny Appice, Lita Ford, Rob Halford, Sebastian Bach and Jack Black.
