Lemme start by saying that I was already a fan of Rainbow, mostly because of Ronnie James Dio's awesome vocals. so, today I bought the Dio album "Holy Diver", and man is it awesome. RJD's vocals are great as usual, but what really surprised was the great guitar playing of Vivian Campbell; hes only 19 on this album, and man can he shred! anyway, just wondering if anybody likes this band?

Gentlemen, I redirect you to the preexisting Dio thread:

But yes, Dio is my favorite vocalist and I love all of his Elf, Rainbow, Sabbath, and solo stuff.

Listen to Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow or Rising, to start out with. Both are amazing albums.

not knowing that is like not knowing Dio popularised the devils horns (hand sign) as a rock/metal symbol


great performer indeed he is, played with the greats (blackmore, iommi). one of the few vocalists who can out perform some of the younger guns (along with Jagger, Tyler, Gillan etc)
