R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio 1942-2010

A late night post to pay tribute to heavy metal vocalist, Ronnie James Dio, who passed away at the age of 67 on Sunday. He had been battling stomach cancer in recent months. He was best known for his stints as lead singer of Dio, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, and most recently Heaven & Hell. And as you learn something new everyday, reading his bio I never he realized he was the first heavy metal singer to popularize the "devil's horn" hand gesture, something we've all thrown up at one time or another when listening to our favorite metal tune.

So today, a couple live videos of two of his most popular songs, and my personal favorite Dio vocals, in remembrance of the "Man on the Silver Mountain".
