A Break From Regular Programming

16 05 2010

Today, Ronnie James Dio, one of the greatest (if not the greatest) heavy metal singers of all time, passed away.  He was 67.

Dio is best known (for better or for worse) as being the original replacement of Ozzy in Black Sabbath, as well as fronting Rainbow (Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple fame’s band) and having rather successful solo albums.  One of the most timeless things he left us with was the devil horns that have become ubiquitous in the heavy metal community.

His contributions to music have always been immense, and he will leave a void that will not be filled easily.

Rest in peace.
