Ronnie James Dio July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010

If Elvis was the “King of Rock & Roll”, then surely Dio was the “King of Metal”… Ronnie James Dio passed away yesterday at the age of 67. I saw Dio back in the mid eighties when he started his solo band after leaving Black Sabbath and was headlining at the Portland Colosseum to support the […]
