The Very Beast Of Dio
Ronnie James Dio had fronted Elf, Rainbow and Black Sabbath before going solo in 1983 and securing his status as one of hard rock's most distinctive voices. Over the next decade, the performer cut half a dozen studio sets and the live INTERMISSIONS for Warner/Reprise Records, and highlights from these are gathered on Rhino's 2000 collection THE VERY BEAST OF DIO. “Holy Diver,” “The Last In Line,” “Dream Evil” and “Lock Up The Wolves” are among the 16 dark and brilliantly crafted metal masterpieces here – these are the songs that put this man atop a silver mountain. Ronnie James Dio was born on this day in 1942, and we'll celebrate the birthday with another spin of the gold-certified THE VERY BEAST OF DIO.
