Default Lost a Rock Icon

DIO

Sing me a song, you're a singer
Do me a wrong, you're a bringer of evil
The devil is never a maker
The less that you give, you're a taker
So it's on and on and on, it's heaven and hell, oh well

I had the pleasure of seeing Rainbow live in 1978 when Dio was the singer. I later saw Black Sabbath live with Dio. Many of our rock icons will be checking out in the next few years.

Ah hell, that sucks.
I know Mr. Dio fought a long hard battle with stomach cancer.
RIP-RJD you were one of my favorites

RIP, Ronnie. Thank you for the years of great metal. Your voice was tremendous on record and live. There will never be anyone like you...ever. I bow to your talent now as I have in the past. Kiss the dead for me, great one.

(Who would have ever thought that Ozzy would out live you?)

Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Dio. 'Nuff said!

RIP Ronnie
Last in line remains one of the best songs for anyone with pasion.
Even more for those that have a warrior soul.

Played some Dio on the jukebox and bought the bar a round of turkey tonight before I Z'd the till out and locked the doors. Good man. Sacred Heart FTW.

>>Same went for DBD when he passed.
