Ronnie James Dio, the late vocalist of Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, Elf and one of the godfathers of Heavy Metal (credited for popularizing the devil horns-sign) is remembered today on the day of his first death anniversary.


Geezer Butler stated: “He had an incredible voice; he was blessed with it. And he loved his fans. He’d talk to his fans after every show until there was nobody left. He was so genuine.”


The vocalist passed away on Monday 16th of May 2010 at the age of 67, suffering from stomach cancer.
