I have a cover of Aerosmith's Dream On by Ronnie James Dio and Yngwie Malmsteen. It's one of the best covers I have ever heard.

Also had a period back in HS where I listened to Holy Diver every other song.

Tough loss for music.

Terrible, last I heard was that it went into remission?

Listened to this guy all the way back to the Elf & Rainbow days...

Heaven & Hell along with The Mob Rules were always my favorite BS albums...

There was nothing like seeing him at the old Coliseum for the Holy Diver, Last In Line & Sacred Heart tours...

One of rock's true great vocalists/writers/showman

RIP Ronnie, you will be missed. I really liked both his stuff with Sabbath and the solo material as well. Wish I would have gone to see Heaven and Hell a couple of years back with my buddies.

he was a good bowler, and a good man. He was one of us. He was a man who loved the outdoors... and bowling

I was never a huge DIO fan, but there's no doubt he was very talented. One of the best thing I can say about was him is when he took over Black Sabbath, he didn't try to be an Ozzy clone. He did his own thing in his own way, which is rare when replacing a legend. As someone who has followed metal for over half my life, RJD was viewed as one of the nicest most likeable and approachable frontmen in the scene. Always signed every shirt, hat, or CD he could.

He also is credited with creating the Metal sign. So there's that too.

RIP Ronny James Dio \m/.
