    Sad, sad day in the metal world. He was a great singer and performer. I was fortunate enough to see him live several times.

    RIP DIO

    Yes, RIP Ronnie James Dio. I remember your music well, all of it. On a personal note, I think Black Sabbath was Ozzy and didn't care for him in Black Sabbath. I love his music. I guess I could compare Sammy Hagar...an awesome guy with an awesome voice, but he just wasn't Van Halen, because it wasn't Diamond Dave. I hope that makes sense.

    My heart and prayers to DIO and family.

    ^^ Agreed.... Ozzy was Black Sabbath, the rest was jus a copy... Don't get me wrong.. I loved Dio's solo albums, and saw him in concert with Yngwie back in 89'... Lol at the Van Halen, not Van Hagar comparason :)

    Ozzy was Black Sabbath just as DLR was Van Halen. I agree. But RJD was the essence of Black Sabbath. If that makes sense.

    Ozzy was Black Sabbath by name. Like bread and butter. Peanut butter and jelly. They just belong together. But Dio made Black Sabbath. He was what Black Sabbath was about. Don;t get me wrong. I love Ozzy and the stuff he did with Sabbath. I just think what Dio did with them was more Sabbath.

    I guess I never got much past Paranoid (one of the greatest albums ever), and a few after that one.... But, I understand what you mean... For me anyways, Ozzy=Sabbath... Dio I know from his later stuff... Last in Line, Holy Diver etc...

    Check out Sabbath albums Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules. It is a different kind of Sabbath. Not Iron Man or War Pigs by any stretch of the imagination. But still incredible just the same.

    As much as I disagree with the message that the WBC is spreading it is their right, as Americans, to publicly picket and protest. So it is that right which I support and will vehemently defend regardless of the circumstance. For anyone to deny an individual or group of individuals that right makes them worse than those they wish to silence. By living in this country and the freedoms guaranteed us by the constitution we have to take the good with the bad.

    Anyway. Rest in Peace, R.J.D. You were, are and always will be an icon to metalheads everywhere! :rockon:

    I am 100% for freedom of speach, however their method are in port taste. Protest all you want.... but have some respect for the family.

    But karma is a *****, and I'm sure when their leader dies there will be hundreds of people waiting...

    The thing is Freedom of Speech does not dictate nor does it require respect. Again I fully agree with you but in that same breath I defend their right to assemble and protest. On the karma thing, oh yeah, she is a finicky ***** and will definitely come and slap the WBC around soon enough.
