James Durbin Pays Tribute To Ronnie James Dio
Last week marked the second anniversary of the passing of music legend Ronnie James Dio. The Elf/Rainbow/Black Sabbath/Heaven & Hell frontman died May 16, 2010 following a lengthy battle with stomach cancer. Rockers of all kinds took time to salute Dio, including James Durbin, currently out promoting his debut release, "Memories Of A Beautiful Disaster". The "American Idol" rocker paid tribute to Ronnie during his show in Baltimore on Thursday, performing "Rainbow In The Dark" while opening for Steel Panther. Durbin has a special connection to Dio: he discovered heavy metal through his music. "I just remember being a kid, driving around with my mom, and then Dio's 'Holy Diver' came on the radio and it changed everything," Durbin told Noisecreep last fall. "It was the first time I had ever heard a metal song. I loved it right away. From there I just wanted to learn as much about music as I could. Eventually I found the artists that I liked more and stuck with those. I'm talking about Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Dio, Motley Crue - you know, the classics."
