During a recent interview with Eric Blair at NAMM 2019, former Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich remembered the time when he was playing with Ronnie James Dio.

He has shared the story of what they were doing after rehearsal, and said:

“Ronnie was amazing. He was such a great guy. I miss him all the time. I picture him in his house, where I saw him hundreds of times.

I’d come in his house in the morning and he’d be in his kitchen, listening to sports radio, listening to the New York Giants radio. And then he’d say, ‘Okay, let’s go downstairs.’ We’d go down to the studio and we’d sit there the whole day creating. It was great, man. What a great experience.”

He continued:

We’d go there and we’d work until about seven and then go home and eat dinner or whatever… Ronnie’s favorite thing – one of ’em – was Indian food. He’d say, ‘Let’s go get a curry.’ Or, ‘Let’s order out for curry.’

If we were in England, every night the food would be curry – every night. Hot, spicy vindaloo – he loved it. Ultimately, that’s not super healthy for you, but he loved Indian food. That was his favorite.”
