Where do you start with someone like this. The God Father of the Metal Voice and the Devil Horns. I decided just to go with a video history of Dio just because it's easier thqn trying to do it in words.

Ronnie Dion and the Prophets, Early 1960 Something. Dio on vocals. (It ain't metal but it's history.)


Elf


Rainbow-


Black Sabbath


Dion- I just got a chill run through me went he went metal in this song.


Heaven and Hell



Ronnie James Dio's final performance.

Don't laugh at me @DrMaddVibe, but when I was in my 20's, I loved Rainbow in the Dark (still do) and had no clue whatsoever who sang it. I didn't learn who Dio was until I was in my 40's. It got played quite a bit on the FM radio back in the early 80's, but I never really paid much attention when the stations announced "who" the songs were from.


BTW, May 2018 is the 35th birthday of Holy Diver.
