Ronnie James Dio Appreciation Thread

Post Neon Knight on Thu 25 May - 21:44




"Ronnie James Dio (born Ronald James Padavona; July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010) was an American heavy metal singer, songwriter and musician. He fronted and/or founded numerous groups including Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Dio. He is credited with popularizing the 'metal horns' hand gesture in metal culture and is known for his medieval themed lyrics. Dio possessed a powerful versatile vocal range capable of singing both hard rock and lighter ballads; according to Deep Purple/Rainbow guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, upon hearing him sing 'I felt shivers down my spine.'"

I lost my first and only opportunity to see him live with Heaven and Hell in 2010. They were going to play in Lisbon but unfortunately they cancelled the tour due to his health issues. Total legend and one of the most remarkable voices in the scene. If it wasn't for Dio certain Heavy Metal sub genres such as Power Metal would probably never exist.

Have you heard the recent news about Kiss' frontman Gene Simmons wanting to trademark the "devil horns" gesture? What a complete idiot.

I hadn't, but he's now dropped the idea:

Today is the 40th anniversary of this classic live album with Dio singing:



The song "Kill the King" appeared on this album before it was recorded for a studio album, 1978's Long Live Rock 'n' Roll . . . Ronnie James Dio claimed that the violent imagery in the song is actually about a chess game.

I saw a rainbow when I was out today and it reminded me of this song . . .
