Ronnie James Dio

Gotta love the man. Brilliant in Rainbow, fantastic with Sabbath and amazing on his own. He has three legendary albums to his name and it's impossible to fault the man. I saw him last year with Sabbath (or Heaven 'n' Hell lol) and he was incredible, his voice was just as perfectly powerful as ever. Doesn't take himself seriously (see Tenacious D lol) and he's a true asset to the world of metal.

Plus he invented the famous "metal" sign:

Absolute class with Rainbow & Sabbath. Thought his solo career was pretty bleh though. Only really know him for Holy Diver.

......I'd hate to say it but I agree. It's hard to say that because i respect Dio so much but I'm 15 so his music just isnt as powerful to me. I'm sure it was incredible back in the day though.
