Talking about Dio’s hologram and the tour he is part of Tim “Ripper” Owens mentioned that it’s actually better to watch a hologram of KISS than the actual band! Ripper said that we should expect more holograms in the near future: “because we’re all about technology… Everything moves forward. When somebody dies in the movie industry, they make a digital person to finish the movie. This is what it’s all about; this is how they move forward. And I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. I mean, sometimes I think it might be better to watch a hologram of KISS right now than watch the actual band”. He also mentioned Static-X: “Static-X goes out and they have a guy wear a mask of the singer who passed away, and I read these reviews, and people are, like, ‘This thing is the most amazing thing ever. It’s such a great idea,'” he said. “I’m, like, ‘Dude, it’s a guy standing there with a mask.(…) To me, I would love to see a David Bowie hologram show, because I didn’t see him, and his career is like Ronnie James Dio that went so long. (…) I think it would be fantastic to watch Elvis [Presley] or watch David Bowie or watch a Lemmy hologram with Mikkey Dee and those guys. I think it would be fun. It’s not replacing stuff — it’s just a show, and to kind of go out and have some drinks. (…) I’m certain there’s a Motörhead one in the works already, there’s a Lemmy [hologram] in the works already, and I’m certain there’s gonna be a David Bowie one. You just saw some other companies doing Roy Orbison and they’re doing things like that… It’s not the future of music, but it’s the future of entertainment and another way for people to go out and have a night out and enjoy themselves.”
