Episode 6: Dio

When Ronnie James Dio passed away in May of 2010, the world lost one of the true heavy metal greats. Not only was Dio one of the greatest vocalists of all time, he was an ambassador for metal. As a kid who great up playing Dungeons & Dragons, Dio's fantasy-laden songs were like the soundtrack to my imagination. From his time in Rainbow and Black Sabbath, to his illustrious solo career, Dio's metal legacy will never be forgotten. Tonight we're focusing on Dio's first three solo albums, and here are just a handful of Dio's great videos from them:

Holy Diver

Rainbow in the Dark

Don't Talk to Strangers

The Last in Line

Rock 'n' Roll Children

And here's a bonus video for the blog--one of my favorite Dio songs ever--We Rock
