ronnie james dio

It's the second anniversary of Ronnie James Dio's death and here's a re-run of the final Heaven And Hell concert at the High Voltage Festival in London on 24th July 2010.

Heaven And Hell were originally booked to headline the Saturday but after Ronnie passed away, the event turned into a tribute to him with Glenn Hughes and Jorn Lande sharing vocal duties. It was an emotional day.

Video footage has emerged from last Saturday's final Heaven And Hell concert at The High Voltage Festival in London's Victoria Park.

The concert was a tribute to the late and very great Ronnie James Dio who very sadly passed away in May. Jorn Lande and Glenn Hughes stood in on vocals.

The band began with E5150 and tore straight into Mob Rules and here it is.

As you can see and hear, Black Sabbath reforming with Jorn on vocals would work extremely well. The set list for Saturday's tribute concert was as follows;

1. E5150/The Mob Rules w/Jorn Lande
2. I w/Jorn Lande
3. Country Girl w/Glenn Hughes
4. Children Of The Sea w/Glenn Hughes
5. Turn Up The Night w/Jorn Lande
6. Voodoo w/Jorn Lande
7. Bible Black w/Glenn Hughes
8. Falling Off The Edge Of The World w/Glenn Hughes
9. Die Young w/Jorn Lande
10. Heaven And Hell w/Jorn Lande, Glenn Hughes
11. Neon Knights w/Jorn Lande, Glenn Hughes, Philip Anselmo

Fairly good quality audio of every track is available by searching on YouTube and here are the video highlights of what turned out to be a superb tribute to one of the all-time greats.



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
