Craig Goldy & Author James Curl Guest on Episode 400 of Focus on Metal



Episode 400 - Focus on Dio


Seems like only yesterday we were exploring Master of Puppets on episode 300 and here we are 100 shows later. Hard to believe we have done 400 episodes of Focus on Metal. So with that in mind I guess it’s time to do a show focused on Ronnie James Dio. First up we talk with longtime Dio guitarist Craig Goldy. Besides talking about Ronnie, Craig also discusses his latest project Dream Child. 


Also on the show we talk with author James Curl about his book “Ronnie James Dio: A Biography of a Heavy Metal Icon.”
