“You Can’t Take Me Down” is the initial single from Dream Child, the new band that features former members of DIO, AC/DC and Quiet Riot.
The single which can be streamed below, comes in advance of the band’s debut album, ‘Until Death Do We Meet Again,’ which is set to arrive September 14.
Dream Child members are, Craig Goldy (Dio Giuffria), guitar; Wayne Findlay (MSG), guitar, keyboards; Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio, Opertation: Mindcrime) drums; Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Dio) bass, and Diego Valdez (Helker) on vocals.
Goldy stated about “You Can’t Take Me Down“: “It’s about when all the people, circumstances, obstacles that life can throw at us take a turn for the worst and that no matter what, we can and will prevail!”
In an earlier conversation, he spoke about how Dream Child was conceived, “”I had been listening to my favorite bands a lot recently, Purple and Rainbow’s ‘Rising’ album, others in that style, and had noticed that many people who also love those bands often have the very same comments as one another: ‘They don’t make music like that anymore!’
He continued, “I had mentioned that whenever I do start writing original material again that I would utilize everything that I had learned from working side by side with the Master (Ronnie James Dio) for so many years in such a way that I would hope to make him proud… and here it is!” Goldy also spoke about the other band members:
“We are so very fortunate to have bassist Rudy Sarzo as a featured guest, Simon Wright on drums, Wayne Findlay on guitars and keyboards, and Diego Valdez, whose voice will send shivers up your spine!
“This album will bring back memories of the days most people have thought were long gone and never to return, yet it is also new and fresh enough to be unique with some unexpected twists and turns!! We’ve brought it back to life once again!!
