RIP Ronnie James Dio

The man who gave the “metal horns” to the world passed away today after a battle with stomach cancer.  I’m personally more partial to his work with Rainbow than his later efforts with Sabbath or his own band, but whatever one’s preference it must be said that the man was a great singer and performer.  What’s more, he always came across as very intelligent, humble, classy and down-to-earth in all the interviews I’ve seen and read, and never seemed to fit the “rock & roll bad boy” tabloid mold.  I don’t know if he was a man of faith, but I hope that he is in a better place.  He will be missed.
