WHEN DEATH CALLS - Black Sabbath Frontman Ronnie James Dio has died at age 67
A tribute with my favorite song of his.

Black Sabbath - When Death Calls



Ronnie James Dio, whose soaring vocals, poetic lyrics and mythic tales of a never-ending struggle between good and evil broke new ground in heavy metal, died Sunday, according to a statement from his wife and manager. He was 67.

Dio revealed last summer that he was suffering from stomach cancer shortly after wrapping up a tour in Atlantic City, N.J. with the latest incarnation of Black Sabbath, under the name Heaven And Hell.

Dio rose to fame in 1975 as the first lead singer of Rainbow, the heavy metal band put together by guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, who had just quit Deep Purple.

Dio then replaced legendary vocalist Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath in 1980 with the critically acclaimed album "Heaven And Hell," considered by many critics to be one of the finest heavy metal albums of all time. His on-again, off-again tenure with Black Sabbath touched off an intense debate among fans as to which singer was the true essence of the band — a discussion that lasted until his death.

While I really like the Black Sabbath song "When Death Calls" it is not Dio singing. It is Tony Martin.

I had no idea he was that old, I saw him w/ B.S. in 1980, got drunk and threw up near the stage, I was sixth row, he was demonic, it was silly but very entertaining, was he Italian?
