Damn, read this really sad news yesterday that Ronnie James Dio passed away on Sunday. I will always remember copying the tape - Diamonds: The Best of Dio from Renie and even making a copy of the album cover. And remember Anwin telling me that the "Dio" when looked at upside down actually read "Devil". I must have listened to "Holy Diver" a million times. I only had two of his albums - the other one was Sacred Heart. Another awesome album.
Will be sorely missed by the metal community. And he was just about to embark on a world-tour.
The metal horns - \m/ is kinda attributed to him. RIP.
