On this episode of The Tour Bus Music Show T. Mic speaks with one of rock’s legendary bassists, Rudy Sarzo (www.rudysarzo.com) before their show at Baton Rouge’s Varsity Theatre briefly about his career, his current involvement Dio Disciples and his long association and friendship with Ronnie James Dio (www.ronniejamesdio.com). Dio Disciples is the band of the late Ronnie James Dio. They have been touring the world in celebration of the life of Ronnie and to raise awareness of cancer, the early detection and treatment for the disease. Ronnie passed away at 7:45 am (CDT) on May 16, 2010, of metastasized stomach cancer.
We also speak about the current tour, what’s in the future for the band and the non-profit fund started by Ronnie and his wife Wendy Dio. The Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable fund dedicated to support cancer prevention research, raise awareness and educate the public with the focus that early detection and prevention is of vital importance when dealing with this deadly disease that robs families of it’s loved ones.
We at the Audios Maximus Media Network and The Tour Bus Music Show encourage our listeners to contribute towards this cause and helping to put an end to this terrible disease that has claimed the life of Ronnie as well as so many other wonderful people in this world before their time. On a personal note T. Mic and Ana of Audios Maximus has lost grandparents as well as other close family members and friends to cancer. This is one cause that we all can get behind.
