Ronnie James Dio: Anniversary of Death Today
5/16/2011 8:39:44 AM by Frank
Ronnie James Dio died a year ago this day on May 16, 2010.
"He was quite literally, an icon of heavy metal; loved or otherwise respected by all. His piercing voice will forever be committed to the halls of memory. He is credited with popularizing the "devil horns" gesture--a family affection that went on to become the universal hand sign of heavy metal. For that alone, he's immortal. Dio always seemed to strike a deep, personal chord with his fans and always seemed to be a very down to earth, gracious person regardless of his successes." --Ben McCraw
