    R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio- The Man on the Silver Mountain.
    I don't really think that I can possibly express my sadness regarding this loss. Dio has been a part of my musical 'diet' for 2 years now (in Sabbath, Rainbow and solo). He has been consistent throughout his entire career, and was at his best when he left us.

    R.I.P. The King of Rock and Roll

    After few weeks... I still feel I lack of the sky or the sea. I still cannot believe it happened.
    I made my condolences in the FaceBook page, the day after He died.
    I feel... His Voice and His Artt will live on...
    Goodbye Dio.

    The movie was "Vision Quest". Never seen the movie,, but I do have the soundtrack. And it's not on a format you might think...



    This is a scan of my copy I provided to the 8-Track Heaven site. The fifth song on the list is "Hungry for Heaven". More than likely this is the last time Dio (or possibly any member of the Sabbath tree) appears on 8-track.

    Hard to believe that he is now gone, the man who has always been there. These are very sad days. Rest in peace Ronnie and thank you for those enjoyable moments that you have brought to my life.

    I'm listening to Dehumanizer right now.

    I've been listening to the man's voluminous body of work ever since he died. Whether with Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Dio or even Elf's blues-rock, it is amazing how consistent he was. Some of his albums were better than others, but to my ears he never made a bad album.

    I, too, get choked up at times. His musical and lyrical visions have been such a major part of my life that it is difficult for me to say goodbye to him.

    I guess I am not the only one who got all choked up listening to the music. It was hard at first. I am starting to listen a little more and find myself singing some tunes. I still get a little misty. Memorial Day weekend some friends are coming over and we are having our own Dio tribute - some drinks, listen to nothing but Dio and tell some war stories from shows we have seen and share some memories that are attached to the music.

    Here in Finland, last Sunday was the solemnly celebrated Day Of Remembrance for The Fallen, dedicated to our fallen heroes who gave their lives for Finland back in 1939 - 1945. So now that day carries the memory of Ronnie James Dio as well, the raised Finnish flags all across our country will flutter for him too.

    Starting on Sunday afternoon when I first heard of his passing, I decided that I would not listen to any other music until I went through my entire Dio discography. Since I don't have the Elf albums (not yet, but they're on their way in the mail), I began with "Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow," going through all of Dio's work with Rainbow and made it through "Heaven and Hell." Yesterday, I made it through Dio with Sabbath Mk I including the "Live at the Hammersmith Odeon" album and into "Holy Diver." Right now, I'm about half-way through "Sacred Heart."

    Ravenlord, that's a great poem put together from Ronnie's lyrics. Wherever he is now, if he could read it, he would definitely give you a salute.
    I didn't manage all the material and I skipped some live works, but in the last 2 days I've listened to:

    Rainbow
    Rising
    Long Live Rock N Roll
    Heaven & Hell
    Mob Rules
    Holy Diver
    Last in Line
    Dream Evil
    Dehumanizer
    Strange Highways
    Killing the Dragon
    Evil or Divine Live
    Master of the Moon
    Live @ RCMH
    The Devil You Know

    It's been quite a journey to say the least

    RIP, very sad, he was a legend, a great entertainer, who touched me in a very personal way with his lyrics and his live performances, the times I was lucky to see him.
