Former DIO guitarist Tracy “G” Grijalva is working on a book that will chronicle his time in DIO (from 1993 through 1999). In the book, titled “Tracy G: The Dio Years And Beyond The Skull“, Tracy talks about everything — from how he got the gig and how he eventually left the band and what he has been up to since.
A promotional clip for the book can be seen above.
“Tracy G: The Dio Years And Beyond The Skull” is being co-written by HYDROGYN guitarist Jeff Westlake — described by Tracy as “a big DIO fan” — and will be available for shipping in late March from www.tracyg.com.
As previously reported, Grijalva has joined forces with current HYDROGYN vocalist Julie Westlake to record a collection of songs Tracy had written with Ronnie James Dio for the DIO releases “Strange Highways” and “Angry Machines” along with some of the guitarist’s post-DIO material. The recordings are taking place at Tracy’s G Factory studios and will include musicians that played on Grijalva‘s 2011 album, “Controlled Chaos” — Johnny B on drums and vocals and Eddie Frisco on bass. There is also talk of live shows taking place in the Los Angeles area this spring or summer.
