    Not bad.

    The singer has a dark past though - he rose to prominence through the Idols talent show (Finnish equivalent of American Idol) I don't dig his voice too much (though he has gotten better), and he is quite an a hole they say. And there was also a RJD memorial gala (which has been discussed on this forum before, if I recall) where some of finest musicians of Finlands metal scene paid tribute to the master, Marco Hietala (Tarot, Nightwish) among others. Koivunen performed DTTS there aswell.

      Probably around during the time Ronnie found out he had cancer:

      Slatr - Neon Knights
      The Mob Rules

      I swear, this band put a damn smile on my face. Good job. There is hope in the future.

        Now, 'Children of the Sea' in Slovakia:


        He pulled that off quite well.

        I'd love to see Owens front a project with Iommi/Butler.

          Let's go back with the tributes.

          Former CHASTAIN frontwoman Leather Leone recorded a cover version of the DIO classic "Egypt (The Chains Are On)" as a tribute to Ronnie James Dio in October 2010 at the Freedom Studio in Los Angeles, California. This demo recording, which can be heard in the YouTube clip below, features the following musicians:

          * Leather Leone (CHASTAIN, MALIBU BARBI, RUDE GIRL) - Vocals
          * Brett Baugh - Guitar
          * Ben Getting - Bass

            Because he wants so bad to be in Tonys next band / project. Wonder why Tony didn't pick him to play at the Ronnie tribute show ?

              Yesterday me and my girl, went to see Buckcherry and Motley Crue. They are touring in three mayor cities in Mexico.

              I wore my Dio conmemorative t-shirt, that one that were on sale last year and that came along with a pin and the little magazine with all those touching letters from several Dio's fans and friends.

              I did it as my tribute to Dio, after a year of his passing. And it surprises me very gratefully people's reaction at the arena, when they saw that Dio's conmemorative t-shirt. Some of them made the horns, some other shouted 'Dioooo'!!

              Mission acomplished. It wasn't my original idea but it worked very well.
