Quotes from the interview Working with Ronnie "Ronnie was just great to work for, he let me do my own things and experiment with things (Drumming). I just loved the way he worked, it was all about the music to make it the best possible." His views on the Dio 'Lock up the Wolves' album today " I did listen to it a couple of weeks ago and I think it stands up. It's got some great songs on it and I have fond memories of recording it. I do think it stands the test of time, it holds up well in the overall Dio Catalog." On Magica 2 album that was never completed "Ronnie had written down the beginnings of the continuation of the story of Magica and we were working on some songs. Doug Aldrich came over the house just to keep things rolling along because Ronnie wasn't feeling very well and we thought it would occupy his mind and Ronnie wanted to do it. There was three or four ideas put down and Ronnie begun to continue the novel but that wasn't to be. "
