Ronnie James Dio passed away over the weekend. His original band, Elf, used to play HS dances when I was a kid as the Electric Elves. That band minus the lead guitar player became the original version of Ritchie Blackmore's band Rainbow.

Spent countless hours in highschool arguing over his best works from Rainbow to Sabbath to Dio. Took me a few years to realize it was all great stuff. His stuff with Blackmore is still my favorite though!

RIP Ronnie.

Saw the Heaven and Hell version of Black Sabbath a couple of years back and was amazed at his stage presence. They were fun to watch and hear.

Rest in Peace Ronnie, you were a true legend!

I heard those crazy funeral picketters were going to picket at his memorial service this weekend. I wonder how that went.

There is your perfect example of fanatical Christianity.
