Brutal Legend: Ronnie James Dio Dropped As Guest CharacterLuke Plunkett6/15/09 2:00amFiled to: Tim Currybrutal legendDouble FineEaPS3Xbox 360NewsLegalLaw23EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThere once was a time that Black Sabbath legend Ronnie James Dio was included amongst the list of guest stars appearing in Brutal Legend. That time has passed. But don't worry. You should see who's replacing him.While no official reason was given for the move, it may have something to do with this lawsuit, brought by Ozzy Osbourne against former guitarist Tony Iommi. The suit sees Ozzy trying to reclaim a stake in the "Black Sabbath" trademark, and since Ozzy is also due to appear in Brutal Legend, it appears that legally that town may have only been big enough for one Black Sabbath vocalist.
