TheRightToRock.com has issued its latest podcast (episode #154), featuring an interview with former DIO guitarist Tracy “G” Grijalva. The chat lasts approximately 15 minutes and can be streamed using the audio player below.

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.

Tracy left DIO in 1999 after he claimed he was “asked to play in a dual-guitar situation” in Ronnie‘s band. According to a posting on Tracy‘s web site, DIO was “looking for more of a Ritchie Blackmore style . . . and wanted [Tracy] to step back and just play rhythm guitar. That’s when [Tracy] knew it was time to leave, freeing him to more diligently pursue his home studio projects.”

“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.
