lzzoso Posted November 2, 2010 Share Posted November 2, 2010 I realize there was a topic that started soon after the news of the death of Ronnie James Dio, however, I thought I would start another topic about this Awesome Singer and Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Pioneer. I still am really sad that Dio is no longer alive on this Planet. Especially after I watched the tribute to RJD on "That Metal Show" a few days ago. As much as I Love Led Zeppelin and other hard rock and heavy metal bands and Music, I would have to say that there are only about 10, maybe 15 people in the whole world of "Music" that I will be very sad when they no longer inhabit this Earth. Ronnie James Dio is one of those people in my top 10. Probably closer to my top 5. Since I watched that tribute on "TMS" I have been listening to alot of RJD on YouTube. Rainbow, Black Sabbath, solo Dio, etc.. When I was a teenager me and my friends would get really stoned and literally crank to volume 10 "Heaven and Hell" "Neon Knights", "Mob Rules", "Holy Diver", "Last in Line", "We Rock", "Rainbow in the Dark", "King of Rock and Roll" "Man on the Silver Mountain", and dozens more. Not to mention the whole "Live Evil" album. Although I have always been a Fan and Loved Dio and his Voice and Music (since the very first day and song of His I ever heard), I guess it is really true when people say that once someone is really gone You tend to Appreciate them a little more. I always appreciated Ronnie but I guess I just seem to miss Him more now that I know I will never get to see him perform live ever again. I did see him once in Sauget, Illinois (across the Mississippi river and over the bridge from Saint Louis, Missouri). That was one of the best shows I have ever been to because it was in some very small club that only held a couple of hundred people. I LOVE YOU AND REALLY, REALLY MISS YOU, MR. RONNIE JAMES DIO. "YOU ROCK!!!"... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
