RIP

Ronnie James Dio is a legend and as many of you know, he lost the fight against a long battle with stomach cancer. I’ve been a fan of Dio for years and I think the earlier work with his band Elf and as lead singer of Rainbow are what I most appreciate. About 3 years ago I was staying at the Intercontinental in Sydney and I saw Dio and Tony Iommi checking in the hotel. They were in town with their band Heaven & Hell for the Australian leg of their tour. True metal heads will remember Dio’s answer to We Are The World with his own collaboration of epic proportions, Hear N’ Aid.

Without Dio this and metal music would not be where it is. Rest in peace.
