Apparently Ronnie James Dio is alive and well, despite having died three years ago.

 
Apparently Ronnie James Dio is alive and well, despite having died three years ago.

Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell, who used to play in Dio, is leading a new side project called Last in Line, which features founding Dio members Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain and Claude Schnell, plus Andrew Freeman on vocals. They played their first-ever show Saturday in Fullerton, California, and Andrew's brother, Raymond Freeman, says an apparition of Ronnie James appeared at the show. "I just came across it while looking at photos from the last gig. Call me crazy, but it somewhat appears to be Ronnie James Dio just above Vivian
Campbell. Just weird... Ghost? Weird lighting? Not sure, but it's there and pretty
creepy."

And on his Facebook page Raymond writes, "Right when Vinny goes too long on the snare fill...look at my brother's face... That's Dio...channeling through my bro who I have now tagged Di'omen... Weird crap like this runs in my family. Call me crazy."

Check out some fan video of the performance.
