This interview is from 2006 so I hope that no one has already posted about this.

About 50 seconds in the god of heavy metal, Ronnie James Dio conveys his thoughts saying that Europe in general is much better than America to play in. He says America is very fad driven and mentions often his dislike for American Idol.

Thoughts/opinions?

I agree with him but I am very saddened by this fact. The general population is not about rocking anymore. I hope he knows that there are still fans here in America and doesn't give up on us and never tour again here.

We love you Dio. Don't hate everyone in America!

That's because rock isn't the only genre of music out there.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

I am glad and I agree with him totally. It's not because I share his ideals or enjoy his music, but because the thought of him not performing here anymore makes me sleep better at night.

We got some coolguys in here tonight. Anyway, I kinda agree with him. It's one thing if people like the music, it's another when people stop liking a genre when it's out of style.

Yes, Dio is ****ing godly, but his opinion still doesn't mean shit.

I was asking what you thought about music in America not what you thought about Dio.

Well in that case, it's the same as it has always been (well, to an extent): It depends on your taste and how willing you are to look for stuff. I will tell you that automatically dismissing everything as crap is beyond stupid though

Music in America is superior to everywhere else because we're the only country that matters.
