  1. Dio was a long-time favorite of mine as well. I came across the news of his death on a forum operated bt ex-Ratt bassist Juan Croucier, and it was the most depressing shock I’ve had in a long while. I always wondered if the line “Ride the Tiger” from Holy Diver was inspired by Evola. Now to go pour a forty ouncer out on the ground…

  2. Sad news indeed. A lot of people slate his period in Sabbath, but I actually think some of it stands up with Sabbath’s best work.

  3. His period with Sabbath was but a minor footnote in his career, in my opinion. His golden eras were his time with Rainbow, and his solo career.

  4. I had Black Sabbath LiveEvil cassette as a teen, recorded on the MobRules tour… dig the lyrics on Mob rules.
