(Un)Holy Diver – Dio Dead

A seminal rock and roll voice, that of Ronnie James Dio, was silenced at age 67; months after being diagnosed with stomach cancer.

Dio came to prominence as the vocalist for Richie Blackmore’s Rainbow.  He also sang for Black Sabbath at once point and had a semi-successful solo career.

Ronnie was short of stature but large of voice.  It was odd, hearing that voice come from that fellow.

I can’t say I knew the guy but he seemed genuinely nice.  His voice will live on.
