Ghost of Ronnie James Dio Spotted at Last in Line Concert?
Concert-goers who hit up Last in Line’s first concert on Saturday, Aug. 3 at Slidebar in Fullerton, Calif. got quite a show, even if they didn’t know it at the time. According to allegations made by Last in Line’s vocalist Andrew Freeman’s brother Raymond Freeman Jr., a very special guest joined the band that night.
Freeman Jr. believes that an apparition of the late Ronnie James Dio made an appearance on stage during the show. He posted about the experience on his Facebook page, explaining, “The moment Ronnie Dio came through this past weekend… Watch the video (seen above)... Right when Vinny [Appice] 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 sh-- like this runs in my fam. Call me crazy."
Blabbermouth also caught up with Freeman Jr. to get his personal account. "I just came across it while looking at photos from the last gig," he explained. "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."
So why would Ronnie James Dio choose a Last in Line show to make his ghostly appearance? Well, Last in Line features ex-Dio guitarist Vivian Campbell in addition to founding and past Dio members Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain and Claude Schnell. To date, no one in the band has commented on the alleged apparition.
Freeman also posted the photo below on his Facebook page, you be the judge!
