[ Note, i also play guitar, fly airplanes, hunt, fish,ride a harley and attend church with my wife and children....go figure.
I love how everyone hides behind "freedom of speech" when they say something stupid....And your opinion is based on what???? Cause he played fantasy themed heavy rock? Read his lyrics when you get a chance....Understand the man, and then start making accusations.

Here is an interesting read:

Just cause he didnt agree with everything the church told him to believe doesnt make you a satanist....It means he came to his own opinions using his on mind rather than just blind faith in something someone else told him to believe. Nothing wrong with that at all.

If anyone would be in "heaven" it would be Dio.

Also whoever posted Stargazer you are the ****ing man. Epic song.

On that note \m/\m/
Kiss was crap....great stage show, no substance.....Stargazer is AMAZING!

Its simple, comparing Ozzy vs. Dio alone, Dio blows him away in singing ability, he can write melodies and music (Ozzy doesnt write much at all), produced and could even play a handful of instruments.....No contest. As far as the stage persona, Ozzy was the original singer of Sabbath and the larger than life character that caught the attention of the world. Ozzy Sabbath is obviously classic, it pretty much invented a genre of music....Dio Sabbath is different, a little more commerical sounding but just as good....just different.

The Mob Rules, Stand up and Shout, and others.

For those of you that might not know, Dio had a big relationship with Philly back in the early days of his solo band....He loved playing in the Spectrum, and in fact recorded shows from his first couple tours there for official release. He always loved playing in Philly!
