Ritchie Blackmore and Ronnie James Dio are Icons of Rock N' Roll, Heavy Metal, Guitar, Vocals, Performers and Songwriters! They fall in that One In A Million category!

For years, I have wanted to cover the Rainbow song "The Gates Of Babylon".

When I finally took the step to cut the track, my band DOFKA, was on hiatus.

I reached out to some of my Metal friends and ended up with an amazing
group of individuals! And all are Rainbow/Dio fans!!

Bass extraordinaire Rev Jones and I have been talking about doing a project for quite sometime. I was very excited to have him aboard.

Tim Aymar and I played in Psycho Scream together. We used to cover Mob Rules and Country Girl in our live show. Tim was an obvious choice to share the Dio worship!

I have been a fan of Ken Erb's guitar playing since I first heard Shok Paris in the late 80's. Dofka and Shok Paris did a show together in Cleveland a year or so ago. He was the final link!

I was lucky enough to have a guest appearance by April Childers on Violin.
April and I teach together at JK Musician's Workshop in Pennsylvania.

I really hope you enjoy the track! It's one of my favorite Rainbow songs!

Long Live Ronnie James Dio and Long Live Rock N' Roll
