Ronnie James Dio died today. He was a hero of mine as a kid and that Dream Evil cover still gives me the willies. From Elf to Rainbow to Black Sabbath to Dio to Heaven and Hell, he was a god of heavy metal. When you look at the awful state of that genre these days (Mr Mustaine), he will be missed. It is amazing to think that a little man with a powerful voice and some dodgy looking companions could rock out. Despite some bizarre imagery, dress sense an all that, he was just one of those guys I grew up with who was just perfick.
No more gushing. Bye Ronnie. You rocked!
Scary album cover.
