Music Groups - Dio

Dio is an American heavy metal band led by vocalist Ronnie James Dio, who formed it in 1982 after leaving Black Sabbath. In an interview, available on the special edition re-release of Holy Diver, Dio states that he never intended to begin a solo career. His intention was to form a new band with fellow former Black Sabbath member, drummer Vinny Appice. Naming the band Dio made sense from a commercial standpoint, as the name was already well-known at that time. Dio in Italian and Medieval Latin means "God" but when the band's logo is inverted, it appears to form the word "devil". This apparent duality of good and evil was also touched on in the song "Heaven and Hell" that Dio wrote while still a member of Black Sabbath.

1 It seemed that the Black Sabbath band preferred Dio over Ozzy. Ozzy strewn off on his own, fucked himself up from previous alcohol and drug usage so he's now just been a mumbling wreck. Ozzy's solo works may have been good in the early 80s but he has really declined in shape and performance severely. Dio has retained his form despite his age, he loves the music. Really one of the forefronts of metal music as we know it. It's just really sad that he had so much planned like more new albums, that this death took him away from it.

3 I just heard the sad news today that Ronnie James Dio died at 67. Ronnie had one of the most distinctive heavy metal voices ever and he will be sorely missed. I'm sure someone will say that Dio boned because Ronnie James Dio died but I don't see it that way. Dying doesn't make you bone. It's usually something you do while you are alive that makes you bone. Ronnie, your legacy is secure. RIP brother. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on May 16, 2010, 7:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Dio is Metal- These days he is much more Metal than Ozzy, and Dio was the Ozzy replacement for Sabbath. Now that Ozzy is a total media whore, Dio looks better and better to the metal community.... -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on June 19, 2009, 12:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
