Dio Apostles

“There is no sign of the morning coming

You’ve been left on your own

Like a Rainbow in the Dark

A Rainbow in the Dark”

Ronnie James Dio (1942-2010)

When I moved to Scotland with my family in the summer of 2012, I adopted my grandmother’s surname as my artistic name. She passed away a few days after we arrived in the United Kingdom. It was a new beginning in a new land where nobody knew me, so this was my homage to Ines María De la O.

Finding a band looking for a guitarist was difficult, as bands here work differently. It was when I read a post from Martin Patterson on Gumtree. He was looking for musicians to tribute to the life and work of Ronnie James Dio, who sadly passed in 2010 due to Cancer.

The band:

Tim Jarvis – Singer

Martin Patterson – Guitars

Graeme Fulton – Bass

Mark – Drums
