Ronnie James Dio—2nd Anniversary of Death
5/16/2012 2:12:08 PM by Frank

Ronnie James Dio, one of the greatest voices in the history of heavy metal, died two years ago this day.

"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
